What would you like to do?
What can you do to start labor if you're 39 weeks and 4cm dilated and 90 percent effaced and you've had a few contractions 5 minutes apart but they stopped and castor oil and sex didn't work?
Answer I would suggest walking and lots of it. If possible up and down a stairs it has worked for a few friends of mine. Hopefully it will work for you. … Answer An old wives tale is to scrub the kitchen floor. I don't suggest you actually do it but crawling on all fours might help. You have probably had the baby by now but this answer might be useful for someone else.
Although castor oil doesn't always work, when and IF it does, it will usually take between 6-8 hours to start contractions. The diarrehea usually lasts 3-6 hours. If it…'s been longer than that, chances are you'll just have a really sore bum that will be in dire need of a tucks pad. This is an old wives tale that this will work. My sister did the same thing, she drank that and even walked and walked no labor. The one thing that it can do is make your baby have a bowel movement while your baby is still inside and this will make him or her very sick. I would consult your doctor about this. Castor oil does not work, but neither does it make your baby poo. It may be taken by someone who is overdue and babies who are overdue are more likely to have their bowels open. Caster oil CAN work, by giving you diarrhoea - which irritates the smooth muscle lining your intestines, which in turn irritates your nearby smooth muscle in your womb, and starting contractions. It does NOT always succeed in starting labour, and may only give you horrible diarrhoea, so I wouldn't suggest you try it - but it sounds a bit late for that.
Answer You should not take castor oil or anything that might cause labor. Every woman is tired of being pregnant by the 8th month and wants it to be over. Let nat…ure take its course, if you are not dilated, it is probably not time for the baby to come. If the baby is premature it could have many problems. Nature/God designed pregnancy to last 40 weeks for many reasons, Labor should not be induced unless the pregnancy is endangering the mothers health, and then only by the doctor. Besides, chances are you will only have diarrhea, castor oil is ineffective at inducing labor.
Answer It will make you go to the bathroom but it will not put you in labor, it's an old wives tale.
Answer If you are taking it through a pack (ie. sinking through the skin with applied heat) then you will know by the way that you feel. You should leave it on for arou…nd an hour before taking it off. If the issue is an important one (I use it for my spleen), then do this around 5 times a week. You could have medical tests done, but most people simply judge by the way that they feel until they can get back to living their lives again. If you took it orally, then you will probably know by the diarrhea.
You are dilated to a 1 and the hospital says im still thick would castor oil work and if yes how much?
I don't recommend it, but it worked for my wife. Try 100ml
CASTOR OIL CAUSES CRAMPS DIAHRRHEA AND DEHYDRATION...I WAS TOLD NOT TO USE IT...YOU SHOULD CHECK WITH A DOCTOR ABOUT USING IT FIRST...HOWEVER IVE HEARD THAT PRIMROSE OIL PILLS… INSERTED INTO VAGINA HELP THE THINNING AND DIALATION...HOPE THAT HELPS IM 2CM 80% EFFACED AND COUNTING DOWN THE DAYS GOOD LUCK!!
OH MY God! You are in luck !! That is exactly how my brother's wife had her baby 4 months ago. Don't be surprised if you get diarhea too
i took castor oil at 39.5 weeks pregnant. it gave me intense labor but they were false! was in hospital for 12 hours with intense labor pains and still no baby, they sent me h…ome. when your cervix is not ready it is not ready. i would not try this. dont do it, it is not worth it. it just makes the process even longer and more pain than it has to be. again ladies dont do it!! . no. no
About the time the explosive diarrhea begin. Taking castor oil does not always work and it increases the risk to you and the baby. I think you might find that doctors ar…e not going to be happy knowing you took castor oil to start labor. Who would want to put their face around someone with explosive diarrhea?
Castor oil is said to help induce labor. It's a laxative, so it helps to stimulate the digestive system and bowels, which can supposedly help labor.
I will be 38 weeks pregnant in 2 days. The doctor said that I was already dilated to 3 and that I wouldn't probably go until my induction date of the 21st (39 weeks) but I tri…ed the castor oil thing and it was really weird not to say one of the nastiest things I've ever swallowed in my life. i first tried 2 tablespoons, then the next day i tried 4 tablespoons, the next day i drank 4 ounces of the stuff, and I got nothing at all. No labor pains, no contractions, no nothing. I think that I is pure coincidence if someone goes into labor after drinking castor oil. If your body is not ready, then it won't do anything but put a bad taste in your mouth. Your baby will come when he/she is ready, the longer you wait, the more of the chance is, your baby will be happy and healthy. So if drinking over a half bottle didn't make me go into labor, i don't think it will do any good to even try it. Your baby will come when it's ready. BE Patient! and good luck :)
Castor Oil has a laxative effect. But it can be used in salads and other food preparation. Cod Liver Oil is more of a nutrient substance, often given to babies and …children.
Castor oil works as a cathartic by purging or being used as a laxative. It is used this way to rid the body of intestinal parasites.
No it doesn't have any effect on your cervix, it gives you diarrhea.
You must be pregnant. It is an old home remedy to drink castor oil to force you to go into labor. No it does not make you dilate but it will cause you to clean out your bowels… which could possibly make your cervix dilate with the straining but no guarantee. I walked alot and blew up balloons and it worked.
