Are there any negative side effects to taking black cohosh to induce labor?

Don't do it!

Open-uri20120817-15335-ml0ruo
Black cohosh and all other complementary and alternative medications should be completely avoided by everyone because they are unregulated and potentially dangerous with no proven benefit. Even more so for pregnant women, or women hoping to enter labor soon! Please disclose to your obstetrician any of those dangerous drugs you may have been exposed to!

Might there be any negative side effects to the baby when taking black cohosh to induce labor?

What are you thinkin

Pregnant_health
Taking anything herbal when you are pregnant and certainly trying to use it to induce labor is not advisable. Labor should be induced only when the doctor is standing by.

Is taking black cohosh good for balancing hormones?

Black cohosh

Hormones
Black cohosh helps with vasomotor symptoms of menopause (hot flashes, etc.) but does not "balance hormones"

Dr. Timothy Brown answered:

Is surgical abortion safe after taking dong quai and black cohosh?

Unknown

Abortion
Because the effects of these herbals are not fully understood, you would be best to wait a week before having any elective procedure to allow any effects to clear from your system.

Dr. James Gildner answered:

i started taking black cohosh for my hot flashes a few days ago when should i expect its effect

Hard to tell.

Hot_flashes
Supplements like cohash,soy, chasteberry have estrogen like activity but they are not estrogen and are less likely to help with some of the stronger hot flashes that women have as they transition thru menopause. Some women do find them helpful but many do not. I would think if your are going to see improvement you would see within the first several weeks. Generally felt to be a safe product.

I am going through menopause and began taking black cohosh to relieve symptoms. I have HPV. Is this ok?

Probably ok

Hot_flashes
There were some early studies that showed Black Cohash could be helpful in alleviating menopausal symptoms, such as hot flashes. This should be fine as long as: one takes the lowest effective dose, that dose does not exceed what is recommended by the manufacturer, that there is no interaction with other medications, and that one is being followed medically by their doctor.
