Ohio State Creates New Guidelines for Preterm Pregnancies
Ohio State’s Division of Maternal Fetal Medicine has developed guidelines for obstetrics and gynecologists with patients at risk for spontaneous preterm births. Supplemental progesterone has been used for several years to prevent early delivery in women with a history of a prior spontaneous preterm birth. However, many women do not have a known history, but have other risk factors for spontaneous preterm delivery. The new guidelines help identify these women mid-pregnancy, increasing the use of cervical sonography and allowing physicians to begin progesterone supplementation to prevent preterm birth in the hopes up decreasing preterm birth rates in the United States. The new guidelines are being made available to physicians in Ohio. Ask your physician about the new guidelines.
