Starting labor with sex...

I am already 1cm dilated does that mean that my cervix will be "ready" to start? Does the 1 cm mean my cervix is already starting, sex will jumpstart it?

Do you think sex will get my labor started?

  • Worked twice for me too! I also used walking and Spicy food. Spicy food has a down side lol.

  • Your cervix could be dilated for weeks. BUT, the night before I had my son, I had sex. =) It certainly won't hurt to try!
