Why does getting turned on make me have contractions?

Just thinking about sex does this.. is that normal!?

  • Yes because when you get turned on your body releases oxytocin along with a few other hormones. These can cause contractions, part of the reason you can use sex to induce labor (along with semen softening the cervix).

  • I honestly don't know why but yes It's true! I read that on what to expect when your expecting any type of stimulation will give you contractions!
