Thank you for your query.
At 5 weeks, the B HCG value is definitely very low, however it is doubling as it should.
Do not rely on the progesterone at present.
She definitely needs pregnancy supportive medications, hormones and supplements.
Consult a gynecologist at the earliest.
A serial ultrasound would be a better tool for monitoring the progress and viability of the pregnancy, instead of confusing and multiple blood work.
Take care.
