I'm 32 week now. Anyone have any experience using EPO in late pregnancy? Just curious. Thanks!

I used it starting at week 38. If I can remember correctly, I inserted the capsule (while wearing gloves) vaginally and let it dissolve overnight. I had tried ingesting it originally, but it made my stomach hurt so badly that I switched methods. I have no idea if it actually had any effect, but I did go into labor at 39 weeks.

I used it with #1. We used it DTD and it worked. I went into labor in about 24 hrs.
