In brief: Not Likely

P17 injections are to prevent preterm labor for women w/ cervical incompetence.
Given , they decrease likelyhood of miscarriage. This is hormone usually produced by placenta, sometimes drops in this will cause early contractions. I would recommend sitting down for further discussion with your ob/gyn or family doctor to discuss further, the risks/benefits.
