I wouldn't worry too much at 36 weeks. I mean, if you're really concerned, no cervical checks and no sex will help. Those things irritate the cervix which can cause contractions then, but again, at 36 weeks that stuff is pretty normal.

I had an irritable uterus with my second pregnancy. It was annoying- I had contractions pretty much constantly from the time I was 33 weeks until I delivered at 39 weeks. It's different from pre-term labor because the contractions you are having don't cause any change in your cervix, they are just there to be uncomfortable and annoying lol.
