Since castor oil doesn't pass through the bloodstream, there is no way for the doctor to tell if you've taken it or not. But I would tell him just to be on the safe side. Hopes this helps! She may wonder why you have diarrhoea (yeuch) but it's not illegal (just useless)

Is castor oil safe for the baby if taken to induce labor?

Castor oil is really not recommended to try and induce labour. It often causes vomiting and diarrhea, which isn't something you want during labour. It is also proven not to be effective at inducing labour. Really, the best thing to do is wait for your body to go into labour naturally. If your body is not already in labour, then there is a reason for that, and messing with it isn't a good idea. I know many many women that have taken castor oil to induce their labors (around their due dates of course) and not only did they never have a problem BUT, they also started having contractions anywhere between 2-4 hours later with a baby following shortly there after. Also, I'm 9 1/2 months pregnant now, and every doctor that I've seen as well as my mother (who has been an RN for 26yrs) has told me that if I want to try castor oil "Go ahead". It can not and will not do any harm except cause cramping. It's your decision. Please do not try to induce your own labor with castor oil. It will cause increased cramping and uncomfortableness for you and not worth it. When the time is right, the baby will come. Do not rush it, take this time to rest and prepare yourself for the baby. My sister is an OBGYN. She said that this is an absolute idiotic thing for a woman to do.

How long after taking caster oil can you take it again I'm 39weeks pregnant?

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.

What to expect after taking caster oil?

Castor oil acts on the digestive tract to speed the process along. Within an hour or two of taking castor oil, you can expect to have strong feelings of needing to void the intestines (i.e. diarrhea). Castor oil is often taken in the last week or two of pregnancy to kick start labor as the intestinal contractions often cause uterine contractions to start. When you burp, it will taste like beans. Depending on how much you took, your next trip to the bathroom could be more interesting than most. Any inflamation you have been experiencing may subside. Drink some water if you think you've taken too much.
