First of all I'm past my due date, second of all I know the risks that many women swear by when using castor oil. My doctor actually recommended it to me to avoid induction at the hospital. I won't go into detail about my situation, there are just a few facts.
Anyway, I made an orange juice shake with 2 ounces of castor oil. I didn't feel anything strange until about 3 hours into it. I threw up a great deal (mostly looked like what I had eaten BEFORE drinking the shake...gross, I know!). Does this mean if it had any chance of working to start contractions that now there's no chance? I mean if I'm throwing up what I ate before I drank it, that makes me think I'm throwing up the drink as well. Anyone have any personal experiences they'd like to share?

Honestly, that is unhealthy, and I would go to the ER.

honestly if your dr. recommended you do that you need to get a new dr. because that is very dangerous. and you do realize that 42 weeks is still considered 'normal', so unless you're over 42 weeks, you're not 'overdue'.

I seriously doubt your OB/Doctor recommended you to use castor oil to start labor. You need to go to the hospital.
