Makena Uses

Can Children Use It?

Makena is approved only for use in women age 16 and older, as it has not been adequately studied in younger women, which makes sense, since it is used to prevent repeat preterm births.

Off-Label Uses for Makena

On occasion, your healthcare provider may recommend this product for something other than reducing the risk of repeat preterm births in women with singleton pregnancies (pregnancies with just one baby). This is known as an "off-label" use. Using Makena earlier than 16 weeks of pregnancy would be an off-label use, as would using it in pregnancies with multiples (twins, triplets, or more) or in women without a history of preterm birth.
