  • Yes~ it *could* help. Nothing is for certain. But it will add to the possibility.
    If it doesn't work, well... You're not out anything!

  • Make sure you're doing nipple stimulation, pressure points, drink a bunch of castor oil, take a walk, have a bunch of sex with a guy that cums in you, eat eggplant parmesan, eat spicy food, and use a breast pump and you just may go into labor!

  • Yes it can help and yet it may not. Not all pregnancies are the same and what works for some might not work for you. Nipple stimulation, long slow walks and spicy foods are also recommended to bring on labor. Walking happened to work for me. BTW, you may use a vibrator during pregnancy unless your doctor specifies otherwise due to a high-risk pregnancy. Check out the newest edition of What to Expect When You're Expecting. It has a whole section on masturbating during pregnancy.

  • Can I drink castor oil, I had a previous c-section and yes I am goin to have a VBAC but wont the castor oil make my contractions alot stronger and harder. I just don't want to increase my chance of uterin rupture.

  • I read that before also.
    Your vagina contracting from an orgasm may bring labor.
    I read the same about having sex. Semen has chemicals
    that induce labor.
    I had sex while 1cm dialated and I woke up the next
    morning with contractions.
