Progestrone injections during pregnancy

My son was born pre-term at 34 weeks and with this current pregnancy, my doctor is considering having me take weekly progesterone injections since studies have shown that this can reduce the risk of another pre-term birth. Anyone have experience with these injections? The most common side effect seems to be pain, reddness at the injection site (in the ol'e keester!)

I don't have any experience with the injections but I used the progesterone suppositories with my pregnancy and I didn't have any side effects. Just wanted to let you know that those might be an option also.
