  • My doctor told me it was okay to use to help ripen my cervix. I was told to put 5 capsules on my cervix right before bed and then to get up in the morning and go for a long walk.

    I did as I was told and the next day my cervix had gone from a 1 to a 3, and from 25% effaced to 75%. My doctor had me to again the next night and I was in labor soon after. It is a strong progestoglanden and the reason my doctor thought it was a good idea for me to try was because I was trying to avoid an induction which I was needing because of medical reasons.
