Sex after sweep...

I'm 40+10 and due to be induced tomorrow My MW gave me a sweep this morning but it doesn't appear to have had much affect.

I've heard that sex can help bring labour on due to the variuos hormones but is it ok if I've already had a sweep done? I'm just desparate to avoid being induced...

This is my second DC btw, DS1 was born 40+11 so I suppose I'd been hoping this one might be a bit earlier hmm

I'm sure sex is fine as long as the membranes are still intact, which frustratingly for you they are.

Try watching a video of a birth (apparently lots on youtube) it is said to bring on labour and worked for me last time!

Good luck smile
