Anyone have any experience with getting 17-p injections? My midwife suggested I look into starting them and I have made an appointment to talk with the high risk OB at the women's center I see the midwife at on the 31st. With Greyson my OB opted out of me doing them but I was watched like a hawk and he did other testing etc.

I am not sure where I stand on them....I have done some research and don't find any harm to the baby which would be my biggest concern. Another thing I have to find out if my insurance would cover them as I have heard they are pricey out of pocket.


Anyone have any experience? Knowledge?

I am taking Lovenox injections daily for a clotting disorder. I do not know what 17-P is though, I'm sorry!

I've been taking injections for 10 weeks now! I test my levels next Wednesday and if their good my hiney finally gets a rest. I'd say if it's needed to sustain the pregnancy then the benefits definately outweigh the risk.

Since they are not sure why I went into labor at 23 weeks with the first one they are doing it more as a preventive measure because I have a higher risk it will happen again.

Definately worth trying the injections then, the longer you can keep that little one in there the better!

I took them during my first pregnancy after I stared having pre-term labor. I was on them from around18 weeks until she was born at 36 weeks. I'm going to go ahead and let you know that they suck. I was constantly bruised and they hurt to get because they are prepared in oil. However if you have a compounding pharmacy they can try different oils.

My midwife had mentioned it to me -- but since I am allergic to my own progesterone and the stuff i had been injecting for 6 weeks, nope. We are not doing it. I went into PTL with my son at 32 weeks. Not only am I allergic, but its all out of pocket, and we are beyond broke. 6k for FET is not cheap and our savings is gone.

Just lurking here. I may be joining you ladies after I see the Dr next week. With my last pregnancy, I took them twice weekly throughout my pregnancy. My Dr was covince it was a natural method without the side effect to me or baby. I don't know if that is what kept her in until 39 weeks or not. I have a history of ptl and mc so it was worth a shot. They are painful and for acouple days after having them I had horrible contractions. If you can get them compounded they are much cheaper. Mine were $50 copay for 4-5 injections. Hope this helps.

I know very little about them. one of my doula clients were taking them for a couple of weeks, but had a terrible reaction. I hope you can make a decision you and your entire team are comfortable with!
