Re: Did 17P work for you?

I was offered the injections due to delivering my first at 32 wks and my others around 36 weeks. I've never had PROM, unless you count that my water broke as the babies were coming out.

After researching the injections I declined them. Nobody can predict if you will go preterm again, or not and it cannot be proven that the drug really works because of this fact esp since there are sooooo many reasons to why women go preterm. It is one of the biggest mysteries science cannot figure out!

For me, I feel I deliver early, because my gestation is supposed to be shorter than the expected 40 weeks. It seems, after chatting with my birth mother, that most women in my family birth early.
