  • Don't know, but a co-worker of mine and her DH went at it like rabbits and it sent her into labor, LOL. Her son was 3 weeks early.

  • The orgasm from sex can cause contractions. If you're lucky it sticks and you go into labor.

  • OH and not the sperm itself, but another substance in the semen causes contractions. Sperm can live for up to three days. Just so you know.

  • sperm can cause the cervix to sotfen, and orgasms can cause slight contractions, but it may not put you ito labor. Have sex if you feel like it :) it wont' hurt.

  • If you are trying to start labor, deep squats tend to help with that.
