  • It can help, but why are you complaining at only 39 weeks? You've still got a week left!!!!

  • It can soften it only if your body is ready.


    You may not have any contractions until labor starts. I was 40 weeks and 2 days when I had my first contraction and I had my baby 7 hours later.

  • Oh, and 38-42 weeks is normal for a pregnancy.

  • The action of the penis rubbing the cervix helps. Not so much the semen.

  • it contains progestron which is one of the main hormones your body releases to start labor which is why doctors say it can soften or ripen your cervix.

  • It does help soften your cervix and in some cases it causes contractions. I'm 39 weeks today and I haven't had any contractions and I'm not dilated at all.
