prostoglandins is what cause the cervix to ripen, so yes, it would be in his sperm too. But they arnt even sure if there is a high enough concentration in sperm to do anything to the cervix.

The ejaculation is what cause the cervix to ripen not the sperm

Pretty sure it's the sperm that can (didn't work either time for me) get things going. So you should be good to go.

Really? I thought it was the prostiglandon[SP?] that does it. Can that still be found in fluid with no sperm in it?

From what I understood yes. It's the fluids that cause it not the lil guys that swim. I might be wrong though as well.

Q: if a man has a vasectomy can ha still produce prostaglandin?



A: He sure can!
Prostaglandins are synthesised and used in almost every single cell in your body.
The Swedish scientist who discovered them in the 1930's,first found them in semen;and so he thought they must have come from the Prostate gland -and he named them Prostaglandins.
Subsequent research has shown that in fact,they have nothing to do with semen and are a group of chemical transmitters that relay different messages within the body.
So a vasectomy (which just cuts the tube that connects the testicles to the penis pipe (urethra) basically has no effect on the production of Prostaglandins or even testosterone,for that matter.
