Has anyone had success in taking Evening Primrose Oil 4-6 times daily after 38 weeks that helped the cervix ripen and dilate where they were having issues before? This was suggested to me; to take the primrose 4-6 times daily orally and then insert a capsule into the vagina before bed and allow it to dissolve while I sleep and hopefully over the course of a week my cervix should have started to ripen and dilate. My cervix is still 5 cm long and hard. The doctor was not overly concerned at my last apt for 37 weeks but as I would rather not have to be induced or go past my due date I am wondering if anyone found this to be effective or if its just like having sex and any other wives tale; just chance.
