Progestogens for Prevention of Preterm Birth
Studies Examining Progestogen Effects
In most studies, the specific risk factors of the treatment and control group patients were identified. These risk factors include prior spontaneous preterm birth, current multiple gestation (twins and triplets), threatened preterm labor, and varied risk factors (a variety of indications among the patients). Unique indications include abdominal surgery, midtrimester amniocentesis, and active military duty.
