Final Thoughts

If you have a history of a preterm birth and are pregnant or are thinking about becoming pregnant, let your healthcare provider know. He or she will consider the benefits and risks of using Makena during pregnancy before making a recommendation in your particular situation.
It is best to make this decision earlier rather than later. This is because it takes time to get all the insurance and financial issues straightened out and to obtain the medication, which is available only from the manufacturer, not from pharmacies or doctors' offices.
