Welcome to HCM,

Isoxsuprine causes uterine relaxation.

It is not contraindicated during pregnancy.

But according to US FDA, it comes under category-C regarding pregnancy.

Due to fibroid "whether your pregnancy will be critical or not" depends upon size of fibroid.

To avoid premature labour, you should take prescribed medicines regularly, rest and avoid stress.
