May 03, 2023


Hydroxyprogesterone injection is a medication that is used to help prevent premature birth in pregnant women who have a history of preterm delivery. It is a synthetic form of progesterone, which is a hormone that plays a crucial role in maintaining a healthy pregnancy.

The injection is usually given weekly to the pregnant woman beginning at 16 to 20 weeks of gestation and continuing until 37 weeks of gestation or until delivery, whichever comes first. The medication works by relaxing the uterus and reducing the risk of preterm labor.

Common side effects of hydroxyprogesterone injection include pain or swelling at the injection site, itching, hives, and difficulty breathing. It is important to talk to your doctor if you experience any side effects or have any concerns about taking this medication. Additionally, hydroxyprogesterone injection may not be appropriate for everyone, such as women with a history of blood clots, liver disease, or certain types of cancer. Your doctor can help determine if this medication is appropriate for you.
