  • Yes lol Sex can't hurt your baby... I was 82% effaced and dialated 2 cm and doing it. I did it the morning before I got induced too...I was like 90% then, It's fine unless your doc says not to.

  • Yeah it should be ok, unless the dr says no , your water broke or if you are losing your mucus plug.

  • You could possibly get an infection from being dilated.

  • You cannot get an infection from being dialated unless your water is ruptured or your membranes have been stripped. Unless your Dr. ordered you No Sex you're fine. Sex can help you begin labor...but only if your body is ready for it to happen.

  • I was 2 weeks over due and 2 days before i was supposed to be induced and had sex the 15 at like 10 P.M. and went into labor at 2 A.M.

  • actually unless ordered not to or the water is not intake then it is perfectly recommened the sperm helps the cervix to soften though it will not make you dilate. i couldnt wait another day to go into labor and the doctor gave me a list of things to help induce labor naturally and sex was at the top of the list, along with eggplant parm, castor oil, and red raspberry tea

  • No, get busy!!!! The prostaglandins in his semen will help ripen your cervix further.
