Hello, I’m 41 1/2 weeks pregnant and getting induced soon. Dr told me to try to keep sperm inside to help induce labor and to apply also vaginal prostaglandin gel… Does anybody know how long should i keep sperm inside me? It’s very uncomfortable when you’re peeing…01/12/2018 at 9:39 am
Yes, semen can help soften the cervix, as it contains natural prostaglandins. One of the many effects of these compounds is to induce labor. So, keeping the sperm inside in addition to using vaginal prostaglandin gel may help induce labor naturally. Also, having sex itself helps, as orgasms cause the uterus to contract, as it would with labor.
I hope this helps,
