Dr. Timothy Brown answered:

what methods can I do to induce my labor or help the dilation since my cervix is soft and thin? I don't want to be induced?

Limited safe options

Cervix
Two ounces of castor oil (you can cut the taste with orange juice) is safe and has been used by midwives in particular for decades at least. How well it really works is arguable. Your best approach is simple patience. Sometimes an induction is necessary but it need not be done without a clear indication.

I'm contracting but my cervix isn't changing. How can I help my cervix dilate. I'm 39.5 weeks along. Only 1 cm but I continue to have contractions.

Braxton Hicks

Contraction
The contractions(Braxton Hicks) that you are experiencing are the warm up for the concert that will soon begin. When actual progressive labor begins, your cervix will dilate an there is nothing that you can do to alter those events. 'If the apple is ripe, it will fall off the tree'.

What are some ways to dilate the cervix?

Medications, bulbs.

Cervix
Cervical ripening is generally done with mechanical means (e.g. catheters with inflatable bulbs/balloons at their end), or with laminaria (for midtrimester pregnancy terminations), or with medications (cervidil, cytotec etc). Oxytocin infusion can also help dilate the cervix to trigger labor.

Does your cervix dilate during your period?

Cervix and period

Cervix
The cervix will open very slightly while a woman is on her period. It is nothing close to the amount of dilation that happens during labor.

Dr. Paula Hillard answered:

Does the cervix dilate throughout your cycle?

Very slightly

Cervix
There are very small changes in the size of the opening of the cervix during the menstrual cycle. This small amount of dilation at the time of ovulation when the cervix is slightly more open, is much less "dilation" than occurs in labor (up to 10 cm).
