Brief Answer:
Natural supplements will not help.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thanks for trusting us with your health concern.
Your serum progesterone levels are low for twin pregnancy. The medicines that you are taking are the only way to replenish the high levels of progesterone that are needed for pregnancy. Any natural supplements are not needed with these medicines. Taking proper bed rest will also help.
Do go for a regular follow up and get the levels checked to know the progress.
Please feel free to discuss further. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.
Wishing you good health.
Regards.
Dr. Rakhi Tayal.
