Thoughts on the Makena shot?

Does anyone have experience with the Makena shot? What was your experience? My doc. Recommended I start the shots and approx. 1.5 hours after getting it, I started cramping. The doctor thinks it’s unrelated however, I had zero issues with cramping up until this point.

I thought this was pulled off the market?

I had to get it every 2 weeks with my last pregnancy because I was high risk from my first, and my only issue was the arm I would get it in would itch SO bad, but I have a happy healthy 16 month old now

Never heard of it…im on the depo…But it doesnt cramp me. I just get painful sex and fat!:sob:

I’ve had the shot every week starting at 16 weeks. I’ve been just fine with it. No reactions at all. I just stopped them last week at 35 weeks.

I got it every week with my last pregnancy because my first baby came at 28 weeks they hurt like a bitch but I carried full term the pain is worth the healthy baby

I’m just now 20 weeks and have to take it until 37 weeks. No issues.

I didn’t have any cramping. Could it be you’re tensing up when the shot is administered? I know how painful and unpleasant it is. Try to relax and find a happy place before the injection. I found that helped the most.

I had the shot every week starting at 13 weeks with my last 2 pregnancies. They worked great for me with my second baby but I still delivered 6 weeks early with my youngest. I have an incompetent cervix

I always cramped a little after having them. I took them from weeks 17-35, every Wednesday. Because of covid, they actually just gave them to me and I just went into the office once a month to have them do one shot and give me my refills. I also found that after a few weeks, my arms itched so bad at the injection sites. I started taking my allergy pill (for allergies) and it also helped stoped the itching and the lump at the injection site.

My Dear friends online, i have to give this miraculous testimony, which is so unbelievable until now. I had a problem with my Ex husband 2 years ago, which lead to our break up. I was not myself again, i felt so empty inside me, my love and financial situation became worst, until a close friend of mine told me about a spell caster who helped her in the same problem too his name is Doctor pade okaka . I email the spell caster and i told him my problem and i did what he asked of me, to cut the long story short. Before i knew what was happen, less than two days my husband gave me a call and told me that he was coming back to me i was so happy to have him back to me. The most. interesting part of the story is that am pregnant. Thanks to Doctor pade okaka for saving my marriage and for also saving others own too.
