  • sex walking and left side lying with pillow between the knees for sleep I would not use black Cohosh I would use nipple stim and a laxative any kind will help

  • 5 capsules Epo on the cervix before bed, walking, deep squats, etc.

    I would not do blue or black cohosh because it is linked to excessive bleeding during delivery and I have a bleeding disorder with a history of hemmorage in delivery. BUT many women take it with no issues.
