  • there are different theories out there about whether sex will make you go into labor... some people swear by it others say it doesn't work

  • Having orgasms may make you have contractions. Actual semen in the vagina can also cause contractions..something thats in it is like the same stuff the try to induce you with at the hospital, I forget what its called though,lol.
    Good Luck!!!

  • Prostaglandin is one element in semen that can encourage labor.

  • I'm not sure but i'd try to squeeze in as many orgasms as I can. 6 weeks is a lot.

  • ONLY if you're body is presently working on labor, ANYway.

  • If your body is going to go into labor naturally then sex/orgasm could help the process get started. But in my experience it wont make labor happen, it will just give it a little jump start once its already began! Labor has a mind of its own. You just gotta let it happen when it wants to. I tried everything to make myself go into labor. Except castor oil, that scared me... but i tried pineapple, spicy food, walking, Raspberry tea, sex, you name it! Nothing worked!
