Asymptomatic women found at midgestation to have a short cervix are at greatly increased risk for spontaneous early preterm delivery, and it is unknown whether progesterone reduces this risk in such women. METHODS Cervical length was measured by transvaginal ultrasonography at a median of 22 weeks of gestation (range… CONTINUE READING
