what i know is that it is a cervix softener - a natural type of prostaglandin (the stuff that is also found in sperm). it won't start labor if your body isn't ready, but it will help things if your body is. my doula and midwife have me taking two gel capsules orally (starting at around 36 weeks) and then two inserted vaginally (capsules pricked and as high as i can get it) starting at 38 weeks, so a total of 4 a day by 38 weeks.
