My sister took black cohosh the day befor her due date and she went in to labor ten hours later. When we got to the hosbital I told the nurses that she had tooken it, and they were a little concerned because it could thin your blood and have massive blood lose during labor and or c-section.

What is the difference between Blue Cohosh capsules and the drops?

They are basically the same but it's just a different way of taking it. Some people complain of the taste so capsules are a good alternative. Just check the amount of cohosh in the drops and the capsules because sometimes either can be more concentrated. I heard the tea is more effective if you can stand the taste. Also I have a link saying that blue works best when taken with black, if you are trying to start labor.
