Evening primrose oil? Vblackshear Due August 8 (girl); Japan 1 posts
19th Jul '13

I am 37 weeks and went to the doctor's today. I'm dilated to a four and 90% thinned out. My daughters head is entering the birth canal and my sack is basically right there,just waiting to break. My doc said he is very shocked I'm not in active labor right now and that she can come at any time. I've been having contractions once every hour,nothing consistent enough. I was wondering if the primrose oil would help my water break,or would it just cause me to dilate even further with nothing happening? If it would help my water to break,how do I use it and how much? Also,any other suggestions to bring labor on would be appreciated! BTW: I have my doc's permission to start naturally inducing labor on my own, since I'm so far dilated and thinned out.

Epo is for thinning your cervix and making it softer, so although it won't hurt, it's probably not going to make your water break. And since you are 90% effaced it probably won't do anything.
