  • unless your doctor says you cant have sex you can have sex all the way up till you go into labor. They say if you have sex at the end of your pregnancy it can induce labor.....there is something in the semen i guess that helps soften the cervix.

  • Some say the chemicals in male semen help to ripen the cervix, thus helping it to efface (soften.) Others claim that baby will only come when they are ready.

    Sex IS safe during the last month of pregnancy :-)

  • There is something in the semen that helps but it doesn't work for everybody. Yea it's ok to have sex unless you were told by your dr. not to.

  • The contractions from an orgasim can also help jump start labor contractions.

  • with my first one the doctor said to have all the sex we could stand, the combo of a chemical in the semen and the contractions would get the labor started.
