  • I did it from the time I got pregnant to the time I delivered. Through three pregnancies. I was sore at the injection site and unbelievably moody. But that's all pretty normal anyway. And considering the progesterone shot helps you keep your baby (ie helps prevent miscarriage) it's worth the minor side effects.

  • Have to do the same thing! Have been on the shots for a month now and no really big side effects, just a little stinging at the injection site which my nurse says is normal. I'm grateful to be getting them because they're working very well! This is the first time that I have gotten to 5 months!
