I started EPO vaginally last night and woke up in the night with a crampy lower back and waves of cramps in my belly throughout the day, without hardness. I'm curious if its a symptom of the EPO or if I'm just still getting over the stomach flu. It feels like gass pain but with no gas or potty runs. I don't think it's labor or anything, but if it's the EPO I may cut the dose in half (I inserted 2 1300 mg pills) because it might not be worth it.

Sounds like it's doing what it's meant to do... ripening that cervix. I'm guessing that you're feeling the ripening and that you're super attuned to your body. Hope it's not too uncomfortable, though.

I didnt get that, but I did get a yeast infection due to the excessive moisture from the oil, so I nixed it. I agree that it may just be doing what its supposed to.

I am super in tune with my body, so I may just be feeling it. I am getting stripped Friday and wanted to be good and ready.

Thanks.

I've been having shooting pains down there much more frequently, and now that I think about it all of this cramping I have been having did start around the same time I started the EPO. Wow, can't believe I never put those two together! I feel like a genius lol. Maybe it means it is having some sort of affect??

Please update after your appointment I'm super curious if it helped progress things at all!

I know I am around 2 just because I can tell, and that was before the epo. So it will be hard to compare. But I will let you know anyway.

I get crampy after inserting vaginally too. I just chalk it up to the EPO doing its job. I haven't been checked since 36 weeks but then I was 1cm and 50% effaced. Not sure what I am now, I have my next appt. Thursday and I'm asking to be stripped then. Here's hoping it works for us and we're both holding our baby girls this weekend!

I notice feeling a little more crampy within about an hour of taking it orally; so it could be related!
