i have seen goldendeal contraindicated for pg, because of it's immediate action on the uterus. i.e., premature labor. i have also found many stories of goldenseal starting a good strong labor pattern within an hour. so i tried it. i took a lot. maybe 15 grams. i even used it internally on my cervix. and it didn't do a thing. so now i don't know what to think. that probably doesn't help you, but i thoughti should share! congratulations on your pg!
