Can you lose a baby by taking caster oil?
No, that is a myth. Caster oil can be used if you are constipated but you risk a horrible diarrhea and it can also be used to induce labor though the cramping the diarrhea will cause but only at the end of the pregnancy. So it only works when you are already full term.
well....... i am on my forth pregnancy now, i am 39 weeks, i took caster oil with my third and labour began with in 2-3 hours after taking it, but this time around i have tried it all currys, treadmill, sex, even caster oil but none of the above has worked, so i really dont think you can start yourself off, it will just happen when it is ready too, and there will be some…
Castor oil won't induce labour - it's a myth. It shouldn't be taken because it can cause diarrhea and abdominal pain, neither of which is particularly healthy. Your baby will come when it's ready. Pushing it to come sooner risks prematurity and the complications associated with it. Inducing labor before the cervix is ready increases the risk of cesarian section.
