I was reading an article in mothercare mag today and it says that sperm contains prostaglandins - the same active ingredient found in the pessaries used to induce labour in hospital!!!
So for all of you that didnt know this (like me) you are now well informed!!!!!

i.e Finish the Job or its a waste of time!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! LOL xxx

erm, yes ! although an orgasm can help trigger contractions anyway. and it is a pleasant enough diversion

Yup - apparently the gut absorbs it 10 times better then the cervix does - shall not be telling DH that though wink

Well of course when you orgasm you release Oxytocin.. therefore contractions... blah blah! grin
