Advice Call your doc and ask about the latest research that progesterone after 20 weeks in people at risk for preterm due to cervix length is 90% effective at preventing early delivery. Please do not rely upon my interpretation (I am NOT a doc). However, I have heard of literature on this. In addition, I had preterm with a different pg that was stopped. I was told that if at my 20 week u/s my cervix length did not measure good they would start the progesterone. I got great news and did not need the progesterone. If you doc does not appear to know, ask to consult with a perinatologist.
