Has anyone had progesterone shots to prevent pre-term labor?

My first son was born 5 1/2 weeks early. When I started having contractions at 22 weeks with my second pregnancy they started me on progesterone shots. He was born at 36 weeks. (Definitely an improvment, we stayed out of the NICU!) So with my third pregnancy they recommended I start the shots at 16 weeks as a precaution. There is not much info out there on side effects, so I was wondering if anyone has had experience with this.
