  • Sex itself will not cause you to go into labor. Only the baby being ready will. Semen may help, but it doesn't open anything.

  • Sorry mom, but you cant make yourself dilate, you can have the sex in the world but if your body is not ready it will not respond. As for a time frame, it could take weeks, meaning some women are dilated for weeks before going into labor, some can go from 0 to 10 cm in as little as 3 hours or less. The truth, no one knows...

  • the contractions from a orgasm can help with dilations, as well as the semen to soften, but its not a definate that sex will help at all

  • The only way you will dilate and contract is if you are within days of labor anyway. Basically sex will only start labor if your body is planning to anyways. When I went into labor, I had had sex with my boyfriend around 12-2am and woke up in active labor at 7:30am
