I'm 39 weeks today and have an induction date set for Monday, since I'm on blood thinners... My doctor is using Pitocin to induce labor, I'm about 1 centimeter dilated, 50 percent thinned out, and I lost my mucus plug. I've been reading about Pitocin and I'm not sure I want to do it anymore... sounds like a big risk. Am I able to try the sex thing to induce labor at this point, being dilated and no mucus plug.... is it safe?Answer Question

I was induced at 36 weeks. I was also 1 cm. They started pictocin at 8am and he was born before 6pm after a very easy labor. My doctor broke my water around 11and the contractions didn't get really noticeable until maybe 1 or 2 that afternoon. Good luck!
