  • my labor wouldnt start for a while so after enother dr visit my dr said to my hubby in a joking way "go home and have sex doggy style "
    I still dont know if it was a joke or not:)
    Just for the record I've tried everything to start my labor and nothing worked!

  • Position has nothing to do with it. There's a chemical in the semen called prostaglandin that is supposed to help your cervix dilate, but I've heard that it isn't actually enough to do anything. You can try any position that you want and it's not going to start your labor. Sorry. Have fun though!

  • i dont think any position really works. but kinda like what Rebecca7708 said there is chemical in semen. and acuttually it works this way, the semen doesnt bring on labor it actually helps your cirvix soften and ripen, when you "get off" it realesses a hormone that can help contrations. so having sex works in two ways.

  • position doesn't matter. your body needs to be ready and you need to have semen present and an orgasm. semen can help soften your cervix and the orgasm can jump start contractions.
