  • I tried it and so did a friend of mine and all we got was horrible diareahha(sp sorry) and terrible crampos,a nd vomitting.. My doc letured me and basically said that its an old wives tale . The only thing that can help bring on labor is sex. The seman mixes with a RIPE cervix to help it dialate, any thing else is jsut and old wives tale.;

  • My sister just did and she was in labor for days and it did nothing for her at all. She had to be induced

  • made me vomit and I had diarrhea too. But, no labor! One week later I was induced at the hospitalbecause I was 42 weeks. That was my 1st pregnancy. With my subsequent pregnancies I didn't try to induce myself.
