Hello, just wondering if having sex at 35 weeks would bring on my labour?
I haven't had sex for MONTHS and I was wondering if that would effect my labour at all?

I would say not unless your body was close to being ready to go into labour anyway.

Unless your actually close to going anyway, it won't.

If it did I wouldn't have been induced grin

Both my labours started just hours after sex, 37+3 & 38+5, but they may have been ready anyway!

Nothing would bring on labour for me (was actually trying as full term) with all 3 of my babies. Sex won't harm unless your waters have gone, its fine!

Only if you're ready to go (or have a high-risk pregnancy where you'd be advised to abstain).

I had a lot of sex at 41 weeks to avoid being induced. It didn't work sad
