Vitex/progestrone supplements

I just found out I am newly pregnant. I'm about 13 dpo got my bloodwork results from yesterday.
HCG is at 60 and Progestrone is 60.5 nmol/L
My obgyn would like to start me on progesterone supplements. However I am on vitex at the moment and was trying to wean down from it. My naturopath told me to continue the vitex until the end of the first trimester, but considering my obgyn would like me on progestrone supplements should I just stop the vitex?

I know it's a weird question but I don't know what I should do as I've heard stopping vitex can cause progesterone to plummet but considering I will taking prescribed progesterone supplements couldn't I stop the vitex? TIA
