Background: Preterm birth is the major cause of neonatal mortality and morbidity. In developing countries, it’s a major health hazard. But there are very few evidence based interventions to prevent it. This study focus on prevention of preterm birth.

Methods: A randomized controlled trial was undertaken in BP Koirala Institute of Health Sciences, where 60 patients were randomized into group 1 (n=29, weekly intramuscular Progesterone) and group 2 (n=31,no treatment) after the arrest of preterm labor with tocolysis. Their latency period till delivery and recurrence of preterm labor and neonatal outcomes were compared.

Results: There was significant reduction in recurrence of preterm labor and increase in latency period in progesterone group. However neonatal outcomes were similar.

Conclusion: Progesterone is useful in reducing the recurrence of preterm labor in a patient who had preterm labor.
