I did with both of mine and it did work very well, I took it both orally and v____ally and experience consistent thinning and dialating of the cervix from one doctor's appointment to the next, my midwife actually recommended it.

HOW FAST DID IT START WORKING? I WILL ONLY HAVE TAKEN IT FOR ABOUT 5 DAYS BEFORE MY NEXT DR APPT

 

momma3tobe - January 6

I can't remember exact days, but at each appointment (for about 2 weeks) I was 1cm more dialated and more effaced, I was using them starting my 36th week.

I've been reading a lot about this and I was told that Borage Seed Oil works just as well if not better. My thing is, is how long do you have to use it before you noitce any changes

i have been taking it for 1 week and no change yet.

you have to use this for about a month to get the full effects of it. Fir the first week, you take 3 caps by mouth and two v____ally. Then for the next three weeks, take 2 orally and continue to insert 2 v____ally at night as far up as you can get them. They will disolve while you sleep. Taking it for 5 days isn't going to do much. You really need to stick with it to see results, IF it works for you. It doesn't work for everyone. I used it for my second and saw minimal results. I am using it again because to me, anything that can help with this pregnancy is worth the ha__sle. Good luck!

I started taking borage seed oil about two weeks ago now 35 weeks pregnant and my cervix went from a little over 5 in to 4'6 so I'm not sure if its the borage or the baby pushing down because she is doing that to or both. I was taking 3 a day I need to get more. ultrasound said the baby is doing great and gaining weight. she gained 2 lbs seens Dec 20th. She went from 2lbs 10oz to 4lbs 10oz.

I've heard of it but I never tried it. You can take it orally and also you can put the oil on your cervix is what I was told. How you reach your cervix is beyond me but that's what they say. And I also heard it's good to take starting about 34 weeks or so. I don't think it's any overnight miracle type of thing. Two 500mg a day and then up to three a day.

I'm now taking the primrose 1000mg. once a day for now then I'll up to two starting Monday. I wanted to know about the respberry tea and taking the primrose is safe. I read somewhere that this other women did them both. anyone else heard about it.

I used evening primrose for about 7 days. I used them internally at night, orally 2x per day. This might be TMI, but I broke them open and squeezed the oil out. Than, used a childs medicine bulb/syringe(no needle of course) to insert v____ally. After the 7 days I used the LaborBoost labor cream and had my baby the next day.
