Re: S/O If you've done caster oil, how long do the bad effects last?

It probably depends on how much you drink I drank 2 ounces, and I was sick for about 12 hours. NOT FUN at all! I never went into labor and I was over 41 weeks.

My mother a midwife says if your going to do it, go with 2 ounces, mixed in with a scoop or 2 of icecream and some sort of soda. The soda helps cut the greasiness of the oil.

Also, she says it works best when used after a fulllll dinner..Something a little heavier..not like a salad. Best when the oil has something to work with.

However, as to how long side effects go on, I'm not sure, and I'm sure it ranges from person to person.

I had the runs but it got my contractions going. I went to the bathroom like twice and had the baby withing a couple of hours. 7 minutes of pushing! I drank some pepsi after downing the castor oil b/c the carbonation helped to get rid of the nasty taste. I would definately use it again if I needed to.

I tried it with baby # 3 he was a planned HB like my first two.
I was trying to avoid going to the hospital, after my water broke but no contractions after 24 hrs. I was supervised by my MW, I tried it twice with oj and then w/soda.... no luck with either one. It did give me bad cramps and did clean me out, but no labor. the bad effects only lasted until I was completely cleaned out!

I had diarrhea for about 30 minutes about 2 hours after I had taken it. It wasn't too bad, just felt like I had taken a laxative. I think I drank 3 oz. 6 hours after I had taken it I went into labor and 4 hours after that DS2 was born.

first baby- CO in the morning, mild diarrhea for a few hours later that day, no stomach cramps or anything. No baby as a result. (AROM about 4 days later)

second baby- CO at night before bed, no diarrhea, no stomach cramps, woke up a couple hours later with ctx's and had a baby a few more hours later.
