17 Hydroxyprogesterone caproate shot?

  1. Anyone had to take this to prevent premature birth? Peri put me on it at 20 weeks. Is it similar to taking PIO after IVF? Any side effects?

  2. I currently take the weekly injection and have been since I was 17 weeks. I am now 30 weeks and will continue to 36 weeks.I have had no side effects and I think its something like the PIO you take during your first 12 weeks after doing IVF. I am getting the injection during this pregnancy because I lost a baby girl at 21 weeks with my last pregnancy. There have been studies done that shows it helps with preterm labour and its suppose to help calm your uterus. Good luck! I would definatly do the shots again for another pregnancy.
