I'm currently doing the Makena injections once a week. I started them at 16 weeks.

I took 17 hydroxyprogesterone with my son, but they can no longer mix the compound. It has to be the Makena now. I'm 22 wks and start Monday, my insurance took forever to approve. I was reading some risks of miscarriage and stillborn. Kinda scary.

I haven't heard those side effects but I have two left and so far so good for me.
