  • semen has prostaglandins that will help soften the cervix and you orgasming, is a contraction. but i agree with PP it might speed things along, but only when baby is ready. good luck!

  • Yes, it *could* really help!
    ...or not.
    ;-P
    "Home remedies" can be like pouring more water into a cup that's filled to the very brim; only helpful when the hormonal dance between mom-baby-placenta are already to go. Labor is just around the corner, anyway.
    (I say that makes it ironic, the body is already going into labor, so no need to bother with that other stuff...)

  • My doctor told me (when he was trying to convince me to induce just for the fun of it) that he wouldn't use pitocin, he would use a different drug that was basically artificial semen. He told me that day that semen induces labor. Of course not every time, but it definitely can. according to him.

  • We tried it because our son was almost two weeks late and we were VERY anxious. It had absolutely no effect on the baby, but it did raise our spirits!
