Have you ever tried using sex to start labor?

Even if it doesn't work, you can still have fun trying, right?

  • well...It wasn't fully intentional... but it sure worked!
    Sex before bed...contractions at 1am!

  • I tried once I reached 38 weeks and wasn't comfortable sitting, standing, or lying down. It didn't work. It wasn't too uncomfortable, but it wasn't the best sex ever.

    ( I ended up going in and having them break my water...dd was born 4.5 hours later!)

  • Yup! My hubby had the time of his life! We had sex every day after I turned 39 weeks :o)
    But it did not bring on labor, my baby was still cooking and came right on time, at her own terms! LOL

  • It worked for me both times! Within about half an hour I began contracting regularly, and 13-14 hours later (for both labors) my baby was born. I'm hoping it works again with my third (due July 1st).

  • Dh and I tried when I was 38 weeks. it was competly miserable. I was so uncomfortable and it hurt. I was just like hurry up and get it over with lol. I don't know if that helped start labor or not but I had DD 2 days later. If all else I figured I'd let him go at one more time before he got off for 6 weeks lol
