My doctor suggested I start this treatment, but i'm not too sure abou it. I first pregnancy I had my DS at 35 1/2 weeks. He was fine and did not need to go to the NICU. She wants me to start this treatment at 20 weeks.
We just found out today that we are approved for weekly 17P/ 17 OHPC shots. I'll start them next week at 16 weeks pregnant and will take them hopefully until I reach 36 weeks. I went into labor at 26 and delivered at 27 wks last time around so we'll see.
Our insurance approved them for 100% - so no copay or deductible.
I am getting the weekly shots right now. My first son was born at 34.5 weeks. Hoping to get to full term this time around.
I've had no side effects except the injection spot is usually sore for a few days after injection. I definitely would recommend receiving the shot.
