  • hi, wow i remeber that it sucked ok here's so things my docs office told me you can try to squeez your nipples and or try and put warm damps towles on your breast to try and get you milk flowing which will in return start labor. you can try sex because there in something cant remeber exactly the name of it but there s some chemical n the mans sperm that helps start labor. thats all i have heard about. and that was from the doc so you can try that.

  • I don't know if masterbation does, but I do know semen does help thin the cervix. You may try that. You don't have to have sex...use your imagination. :)

  • i dont know from experience, but i guess its worth a try since your uterus contracts during orgasm whether you're pregnant or not...if anything you may just enjoy yourself =)
