If so what'd you use?
And how did it work?

yes. I tried everything with my first (she was born at 43 weeks). In my experience, you can stimulate contractions but they won't send you into labor unless you are REALLY ready. What worked best for me was having sex and using the uterine toner called 5-W (http://www.amazon.com/Natures-Sunshine-5-W/dp/B000MMQ5RI).

Making love was what helped us...evening primrose oil by blue bonnet take one capsule orally and insert one into the vagina (I had a midwife) you can get that at whole foods. I was 4 days overdue.

EPO
Sex
Walking
Bouncing in a birth ball
RRLT

But nothing will help unless your body is ready.

Yes. It broke my water prematurely and tried to start labor but my body or my baby just weren't ready. I was trying to avoid induction, but trying home remedies gave me a ticket to a sooner induction. I wouldn't recommend it.
