17p shots to prolong pregnancy
Wed, 10-19-2011 - 8:50pm
I am due in feb but need advice. I delivered twins at 32 weeks they weighed around 6 pounds total. This time its a single pregnancy but my obgyn mentioned the 17p shots. I dont have insurance and the shots are $8000 and are 1/3 effective. Should I take the risk since its a single pregnancy or take the shots? What would you do?

I'd get a second and third opinion from other doctors on that.

Can you check around for lower prices?
