As with all other "natural induction methods", it only works if your baby is ready to come out anyway.
With my 2nd baby, I had had contractions all night long and by about 6am that morning, I was over it. I told DH, "We're having sex so this baby will speed up!" Prior to that, my contractions were about 5 minutes apart. After sex, they were 2 mins apart and extremely painful. There was a mad dash to pack up our stuff, our son, and head to the hospital. When we arrived, an hour and a half later....my contractions had slowed back down to 5 minutes apart. TALK ABOUT DEPRESSING. Lol. My daughter did arrive later that afternoon, but I'm not sure sex had much of anything to do with it.
