Can i take castor oil when im 37weeks and 4days pregnant im already having contractions im having contraction i tried having sex, and walking

Can i take castor oil when im 37weeks and 4days pregnant im already having contractions im having contraction i tried having sex, and walking

This : This was an old "wive's tale" on aiding with labor. This is not an appropriate way to help labor. Other's that do not help are: walking, jumping, etc.. These only pass the time. The only thing that has been proven to increase contractions and quicken labor is intercourse. The fluid that the sperm swim in has a prostaglandin that is simular to the prostaglandin that we use to "induce" a woman's labor. Although this can be quite uncomfortable to a full term woman it is the only "act" that has been shown to increase contractions and aid in labor. ...Read more
