I'm 36 wks. I took 4oz of castor oil last night at 930 it's been 12 hours. I was on the toilet all night but no contractions. is there a chance it will still work how long before i go in labor?
Too soon Although there is little scientific, peer-reviewed data to support the claim that castor oil can hasten the onset of labor, there is plenty of anecdotal information that it does. Many childbirth professionals attest to its efficacy. However, inducing labor is not something to do before week 40. I understand that you want to get the show on the road, but you're rushing things.

If you're 36 weeks pregnant and you took castor oil and now your contractions are 5 minutes apart when should you go to the doctor?
Answer . Call the hospital now! If they are constantly 5 minutes apart you need to get there ASAP! Even if it's false labor it's still hard false labor--and they will eithe…r want to go ahead and let you have the baby or they will try stopping your contrations. It's not a good idea to drink castor oil at 36 weeks because your due date could have been slightly off by a week or two, as not all babies develop the same in the womb. But since the deed is done, call now! Don't even read this! Get off of the computer and call! :). Answer . Now!!
Although castor oil doesn't always work, when and IF it does,it will usually take between 6-8 hours to start contractions. Thediarrehea usually lasts 3-6 hours. If it's been l…onger than that,chances are you'll just have a really sore bum that will be in direneed of a tucks pad. . This is an old wives tale that this will work. My sister didthe same thing, she drank that and even walked and walked no labor.The one thing that it can do is make your baby have a bowelmovement while your baby is still inside and this will make him orher very sick. I would consult your doctor about this. . Castor oil does not work, but neither does it make your babypoo. It may be taken by someone who is overdue and babies who areoverdue are more likely to have their bowels open. . Caster oil CAN work, by giving you diarrhoea - which irritatesthe smooth muscle lining your intestines, which in turn irritatesyour nearby smooth muscle in your womb, and starting contractions.It does NOT always succeed in starting labour, and may only giveyou horrible diarrhoea, so I wouldn't suggest you try it - but itsounds a bit late for that.
You are 36 weeks and been contracting now since 31 weekswas in labor at 31 do you think castor oil will work for me doc says its safe to have baby now i am tired of hurting what would you do?
Answer . I tried that with my first child. I don't suggest it. I didn't go into labor, but I crapped myself silly!\nTry pinching your nipples, or getting your man to do it…. That releases hormones into your system that will trigger labor. I'm not saying it will work every time, but that's how I induced my labor with my last child.
Answer . There is really no telling how long it will take to go into Labor after taking castor oil. You're body may not be ready to give birth, therefore you might get noth…ing but cramping and diarhea. But if this does work for you, it can be anywhere from an hour up to 10hrs or longer. It all just depends on your body and how close you are to being ready.
Castor oil may induce labor, but it should not be taken without first consulting your doctor. Only your doctor will know you precise situation and will know best what you shou…ld do. One woman's story: I was 37 weeks and 2 days when i took castor oil i was also 70% effaced and 3 centimeters dilated i took 3 tablespoons of castor oil at approximately 1:30 p.m and read online that it may take 2 hours before anything starts to happen so i took a small nap when i woke still nothing it had been 3 hours by now all of a sudden i started having some cramps and contractions then i got the runs (normal for castor oil) after the runs died down a little bit my mother in law thought i should go in and be checked (about 11:00 p.m) so my husband and i went to the hospital she monitored me for an hour and said i had not made to much progress i was then (approx.12:45a.m) 3 1/2 centimeters and 90% effaced she wanted to leave me for another hour and check me again i didn't want to be at the hospital until 2:00 in the morning so i decided to go home until my contractions were closer together (the hospital is about 20 minutes away from where we live) we stopped at McDonald's cause i was starving and i told my husband i felt like i had to use the restroom again so hurry up and get me home so he did i got home went straight to the bathroom and had a gush of blood I WAS IN LABOR at about 1:57 a.m my husband headed me right back down to the hospital (I didn't even get to eat) since there was no traffic he got us there in 10 minutes i was gone from the hospital for about 45 minutes and when i got back she checked me again i was 9 centimeters 100% effaced and had a bulging bag15 minutes later after they gave me a spinal for the pain and broke my water and 3 pushes later i had a healthy baby girl at 6 lbs 6 ozs and 18 1/2 in.
About the time the explosive diarrhea begin. Taking castor oil does not always work and it increases the risk to you and the baby. I think you might find that doctors are not …going to be happy knowing you took castor oil to start labor. Who would want to put their face around someone with explosive diarrhea?
Castor oil is said to help induce labor. It's a laxative, so ithelps to stimulate the digestive system and bowels, which cansupposedly help labor.
I stopped taking Citalopram in March and I'm still itching. I took some antihistamines and steroids and it's STILL going. How long does an allergic reaction to citalopram last?
i take two antidepressants. i ran out of citalopram and didn't get it refilled for a month. when i started taking it again, i experienced a very unusual type of itching. the i…nteresting thing is that this itching had previously been occurring for about a year, but just recently had stopped. i have run a couple of anecdotal tests, and i am convinced the citalopram is responsible. the itching comes from inside my feet and fingers. it comes in pulses that subside. episodes last from 15 to 60 minutes. the itching always starts when i am experiencing an upset mood - fear, anxiety, annoyance, anger. scratching does not help beyond the immediate moment. it can contribute to lack of sleep, and daytime concentration on the outside world when an episode occrus. in all my life, this is the strangest reaction to a drug. Even though many years ago, i did a little LSD. now to tell my psychiatrist (we had discussed the coincidence of the itching and mood).
You should be asking for professional help at this stage, are you at home alone ?
Castor oil generally doesn't work. It often just gives you diarrohea
How long does it take for suboxone to start working my husband took it this morning and hes been sick all day he used methadone 48 hrs ago and used heroin last night when will he start feeling good?
He won't. You won't feel the effects of suboxine if you haven't been off opiates for around 48 hours. Otherwise, suboxine actually makes you sick
it took 6 hours to have contractions but 8 hours to have regular contractions. and had her 2 hours after regular contractions started.
When you live near the equator, or at the equinoxes (March 20 or 21, September 22 or 23).
How long does it take for castor oil to induce labor i took it last night at 10 pm and its now 838 am and still nothing?
It's not a sure science, in that case only doctors would give it to you. Castor oil does not give you contractions directly, it gives you diarrhea. Those cramps are believed t…o sometimes bring on labor but usually it's just you sitting on the toilet with the runs. So stay away from the oil and start taking walks, have sex and eat spicy food if you want to try to induce by yourself. They think it's better for the body to start by itself though. Be patient.
