  • I am not sure about the whole test thing...but I know that intercourse could knock you into labor early, but I am pretty sure its usually only when the male ejaculates inside of you. The sperm is like a natural way of inducing labor :) Me and my husband tried, but it didn't work...lol..

  • Having sex will not effect the test. Yes having sex could set you into early labor but only if your swinging off the chandlers. Sperm helps soften your cervix. that is what my doctor told me. So if you want to have sex and don't want to have the baby early, just take it easy.(i know easier said than done. lol.) Also ask your doctor, don't worry about embarrassment they will see you on one of the most intimate days of your life, childbirth. Good luck...hugs
