I had my daughter who is now 7 years old 6 weeks early due to an incompetent cervix. Does anyone have any experience with the weekly progesterone shots and was they helpful?

Hi,I had a premature baby girl over 7 yrs ago,10 weeks early. When I got pregnant again my dr recommended I start progesterone shots once a week up to 37 weeks. I am 21w1d and I have had 5 shots so far with no side effects. The baby is doing great so far and I had an u/s done that showed that my cervix is long and closed. The shots that I am doing are also called 17P and are not too expensive, we pay about $80 for 4 shots which is about $80 a month. Hopefully that helped a bit.
