Progesterone injections do not prevent preterm birth in twin pregnancies
...but not in women carrying twins is a question that will
be answered only when the mechanisms underlying preterm birth and the actions of 17-OHPC are better understood, they wrote, adding that additional research is needed to see whether 17-OHPC is effective in other conditions in which the risk of preterm...
