Has anyone else had to go through this...?

So I just had my 27 week checkup today and found out that my doctor wants me to get weekly progesterone shots to reduce my risk of having another pre-term delivery. Has anyone else gone through this?  Any side effects that you experienced with it? My doctor said most people don't have any but if you do it's mostly cramps and/or constipation. I'm just curious about the shot, I've never heard of anything like this before.

Sorry I can't be of help, I never had this problem. My babies came on time. I did get one shot with my last pregnancy and it was at 31wks but never had to get another. And I actually think that they didn't need to give me the shot, I think the contractions were just Braxton Hicks and they were being cautious
