ObGyn Pre term vs PROM

Isn't it weird that you give tocolytics in preterm labor, but you don't give tocolytics for PROM if uterine contractions are present?!

Why do you want to use tocolytics in a patient of PROM having uterine contractions?? Moreover halting the process of labour will further ensue the complications like chorioamnionitis, Dry labour, Cord prolapse if associated with malpresentation, furthermore perinatal mortality. Afterall if labour doesn't start spontaneously within 48 hours of PROM it's better to induce the labour process if others parameters are normal.

It's not that baby is premature.....then you can wait untill the maturity by providing steroids.
