im 39wks and 1cm dialated last time i checked,my doctor said that i could try sex to soften and dialate my cervix more, which is fine with me and my hubby lol, but im wondering that if im already a little dialated could having sex break my water,seeing the seamen has hormones to soften ur cervix could those same hormones break my water?
also any other tricks to get dialating faster?

  • only being 1cm dilated would make it VERY unlikely for your water to break from sex. If it makes your water break, oh well... your doc gave you the OK to start natural things to put your in to labor. But no... hormones dont cause your water to break, pressure or contractions do

  • I have a friend on here that did it, was wet more than usual checked and it was her water broke. I heard it was the sperm that helps. We tried doggy style and no results from it yet. He's just happy that at this point he's getting anything at all! LOL
