Oh no, my midwife just allowed me to start taking it and orally at that. Once I hit 37 weeks I can start using it vaginally. It shouldn't cause labor but it helps prime your cervix and helps make them more stretchy. Once you start dilating on your own though, it can help with the labor since it allows your cervix to be ready to open easier. Atleast this is the plan lol. The oils can also be used for the perineum messages once your full term, help get things stretched out down there and ready for baby to come out. I've been taking it for about a week now and I haven't had any contractions other than a few BHs which I've been having since 20 weeks.

But what's been explained to me:

CD1-CD14 or ovulation take EPO
Ovulation Day and on throughout pregnancy take Flax Seed
Third Trimester -Full Term take EPO orally
37 weeks and on start using vaginally
