Re: Inducing labor

I know that, if "taken orally," the prostaglandins that are present in semen can help ripen your cervix. But its much more effective if you apply them directly to the area instead. If you can't bear the thought of having sex, you can always try inserting a couple of Evening Primrose gelcaps up near your cervix right before bed. They contain the same prostaglandins as boy goop.

But you're not really inducing labor either way. You're just softening things up down there to help facilitate labor. If you're really trying to get contractions going, you need to focus on having a big O yourself. Or do some nipple stim (on your nipples, not your partner's ).
