I think most people take it over time starting about 36 weeks. I think it takes a while to work and it doesn't make contractions happen, just softens the cervix.

I went into labor after 2, maybe 3 days of it. Its not meant to induce just to ripen and prepare your body, sort of like having sex does, since the ingredient in primrose oil is the same that is in semen.

I swear by EPO. I went to my appointment on Monday and was 1 cm dilated and not effaced. Went in on Wednesday to be induced the same week and was 2cm and 60% effaced. I had to contractions that I could feel.

I put 3 in twice a day and it worked wonders.

You're joking right?



After everything everyone told you in the thread about castor oil... about her not putting her baby at risk and talking to her doctor..



And ya'll are still trying to do this?!



Just ugh. I sincerely hope her and her baby come out of this okay.
