10 Ideas to Bring on Labor: Not Just the Ones You’ve Heard Before

Everyone has heard that having sex is the way to start labor.  And if you’ve heard this idea, you’ve probably already tried it.  Having sex does two things to help bring on labor.  First, the act of having sex, especially with orgasm, can cause contractions.  Secondly though, semen contains a substance called prostaglandins.  Prostaglandins help to ripen the cervix and prepare your body for labor.  Having sex may not cause you to go into labor immediately, but it may help prepare your body for labor.
