What I immediately thought of is cleanliness. There are hospital germs and such. Plus, does seamen have any bacteria? What about a man's p___s? After all, isn't he handling it all day to go to the bathroom? LOL :D

does seamen

We're not talking about submarines here, people...it's semen. :o And to add, as I volunteer on a postpartum floor, if I walked in on a couple "getting busy", I would die of embarrassment right on the spot.

So yeah. No submarines, please.

For sure! If my hubs had tried getting his submarine aboard my Titanic he'd have hit the iceberg nose first!

I'm just amazed that a.) The woman was okay with it. and b.) The guy was able to "complete his task." Sorry, but labor is not the most arousing of times.

they probably did do it before coming in, in fact I believe the OP did say the couple may have used this method to start labor. And while there may be other methods, I would much rather have sex than end up under a knife or with pitocin-induced contractions! I am am by no means a "granola" type person.

No, semen does not have bacteria and if the water wasn't broken, then no big deal! Or is the vagina sterile itself during labor?!?!? I think not!

Nothing wrong with bacteria one is already used to. It's our germs she'd need to be worried about, not her partner's.

Well in my opinion, pts should be able to do whatever they can naturally to have a drug free and surgical delivery. In this case what they did was highly unacceptable in a hospital ( time and place for everything ) if this was done prior to coming to the hospital then fine no harm done.

Also I think they are one of the few couple's ( if any other ) that would be intimate like that under the circumstance, yeah it was obviously done for the purpose of recreation and not procreation, but I still don't see much people resorting to that method on a wide scale I mean time has change its not 1492 so of course there are much more effective methods and ways of doing things.

Reminds me of being about 8 months pregnant years ago & my Dad picking at my husband that the baby had better not be born with a bruised head. (He had my husband so worked up about the possibility that he wouldn't even try to come near me & I didn't bother to try and enlighten him :) ).

I still don't see much people resorting to that method on a wide scale I mean time has change its not 1492 so of course there are much more effective methods and ways of doing things.

Then you'd be surprised to find out a) how many OBs/midwives recommend this as a way to kickstart labor; and b) how many people take them up on it. Regarding the last bit, 'newer' does not always equal 'better'. Sex releases endorphins as well as oxytocin. And as already mentioned, there is the prostaglandin factor. All 3 can help relax a cervix and/or speed things along in a stalled out labor (say, Mom gets to 5 or 7 and stops). No need to resort to other more painful methods of getting there.

In the hospital, if this were my pt, I'd close the door and come back in half an hour. That's just me. Obviously not talking about a high-risk or a pretermer here, just so we're clear.
