Does Castrol Oil Work

  1. Hi,
    I just wondering if the myth of drinking castrol oil to induce labor really works? Also, are there any other natural inducing methods? Again, my sister wanted to know!
    For anybody who read my earlier post about her baby being very big, she found out today that the baby is just really really long! She still has to see the doc to see what they plan on doing (inducing, c-section, etc).

    LOL! I think you mean castor oil. Castrol is a synthetic motor oil, which, of course, we don't want anyone to drink!

    Your sister's doc is the best person to advise her on the onset of labor.

    Best of luck!

    i'm hoping you mean castor oil, not castrol, which, i think, is some sort of automotive product.

    don't play around--ask the doc.

    it's against tos to give medical advise, so i will close this thread.
