I tried it for a week. started at 36 weeks. at my appointment that day Dr said I was completely closed. I used it vaginally that night, but it was really irritating. so starting the next day I started taking it orally. at my 37 week appt I was still closed... so I stopped taking it.

please excuse how horrible my posts look; this site isn't very compatible with my phone.

I used it vaginally with DD. No luck at all and it grossed me out, so I quit after about a week.

I used it orally with both of my other pregnancies. I won't start until after 36 weeks. I'm waiting to see if I am dilated tomorrow at my appointment so I can decide if I want to use it again

I just got a bottle in the mail today, but am up in the air about when to start it? I was thinking just 1000mg orally starting on Friday (36 weeks), and 500mg vaginally the next Friday (37 weeks). I am hoping it'll work, I never tried it before with my other two, but I'm really hoping to go into labor on my own this time around. I did RRL tea with my second, and I'm not sure if it helped or not, but my labor never stalled and my (pitocin) contractions were pretty bearable up until transition. I want to start drinking it again soon, and would have started a while ago, but the last couple times I've had a cup a night I have BH all night long and that kind of freaks me out. Think I'll wait until Friday to start drinking it regularly.
