Okay, I'm 36 weeks and 2 days on Sunday..Well this is my third child but with my other 2--I was enduced a month early and then 3 weeks early so I really didn't get to experience "actual Labor" with them so I have a question. I've went to the er twice once last week and once the week before they stopped the contractions both times because I was under 36 weeks well I'm already 3 cm and 60% effaced..we had sex tonight and for the first time in like ever I finally got off more than once...would that help the baby come faster or him doing it inside of me? I know they said sperm but I didn't know if it was mine or his. SOrry just curious!Answer Question

Females don't have sperm... only males have sperm

Semen HAS been known to induce labor! Semen contains prostaglandins. Prostaglandins cause the cervix to "ripen", or soften and prepare to open. So has achieving orgasm...orgasms produce oxytocin, the hormone that causes contractions. So, between the two, there is a pretty good chance that achieving multiple orgasms and having your DH ejaculate inside of you can cause you to have contractions that may induce labor.
However, I do not suggest either until at LEAST 40 weeks gestation.
