Preterm Labor & Progesterone: Injections or Suppositories
I have had two preterm deliveries, one at 34 weeks, the other at 33 weeks. This time around, my OB would like to use progesterone injections starting at 16 weeks. I thought I was okay with the idea, but as it creeps closer, the more and more NOT okay with them I become. I would like to make a strong case for doing suppositories instead. I have read many first-hand experiences with using suppositories instead of the injections, some after bad reactions, some because of a fear of needles, etc.
Have you had to do injections? If so, what was your experience? No dramatic stories please....but please do "give it to me strait".
Suppositories....were you able to continue using them later in pregnancy for prevention of preterm labor? How did you it go over with your doctor when it came to choosing them over injections? Mine didn't even bring up suppositories, like they are not an option.
