Evening primrose oil
Any btdt moms have experience with this? I've read about it helping ripen the cervix but I've never tried it before. I'm considering using it this time around especially if my Dr keeps pushing for an induction.
Anyone who used it do you think it helped?

Re: Evening primrose oil
Lost said something about it. She said something like at 34 weeks you can take it orally and 36 vaginally to riipen cervix.. Im going to try it. It doesnt cause pre-term labor but apparently makes labor much more tolerable.

Have used it in the past and have still gone anywhere between 41-42 weeks.

My midwife told me to switch from fish oil to evening primrose oil at 36 weeks

I will start taking it soon, I took it with my last baby and he was still late, but I did progress well and quickly.

It's great. I now have a bottle of it I'll never use though ;) But it will make your cervix more favorable during labor (without inducing labor early) by softening your cervix. You can start taking it orally at 34 weeks and then using it vaginally at 36 weeks.

It definitely helps me soften. I insert it at 36 weeks and on.

I used it with DD and it did nothing for me. I started orally at 34 weeks and vaginally at 36 and was induced at 38 weeks still at a 0, and cervix was no where near softened.
