Has anyone tried this for thinning out the cervix? Does it work and where do you buy it? Also, how does it work and how fast? Thanks.

I would like to know this too. I'm 38 weeks and willing to try it! I heard if it doesnt induce your labor, it does still help the cervix for when you do go into labor!

I just bought some EPO last night at Wal-Mart. I'm 34 1/2 weeks, and wanted to look up when to start taking it. This is what I just found on a site called maternitycorner.com, "Evening primrose oil is an excellent source of prostaglandins, which we already determined readies your cervix for labor. It can be taken orally as soon as 34 weeks, and can be applied directly to the cervix at full term (36 weeks). The general recommendation is two 500mg capsules per day until week 38, at which time you increase to 3-4 per day. The entire capsule can be inserted v____ally (inserted just before bed, it will dissolve before the first time you wake to use the bathroom), or you can use the oil on your fingers for your perineal ma__sage, then also rub on your cervix (a__suming you can reach it). Applying directly to the cervix is optimal, but the beneficial ingredients are absorbed through the external skin or the stomach also. " I hope this helps. :)
