Be Ready to Dispense Vaginal Progesterone Rxs to Prevent Preterm Birth
You'll see Rxs for oral progesterone capsules (Prometrium) to be inserted VAGINALLY to help prevent preterm birth.
Preterm birth is when delivery occurs before 37 weeks. It's a leading cause of infant death, disability, and other complications.
Progesterone is thought to help stop the uterus from contracting prematurely. So it's given to high-risk moms...such as those with a short cervix or prior pre-term birth.
