Can anyone tell me how to use the epo. I bought a bottle of it from walmart. The only kind they had were softgels. Are these the kind you insert? Or do I just take them by mouth. Or should I do both? lol. They are 1000mg per softgel. Quick responses are appreciated because I just ordered pizza and my pregnant butt has to go pick it up LOL.

i inserted them AND took them orally. i'd take one at about noon. and then i'd insert one as i was going to bed. usually when i got up to pee in the night and wiped (sorry if tmi) it would feel oily so i knew that it had melted. so i'd insert another one and go back to bed. as i got closer to my due date i'd insert them everytime one would melt. so about 4 or 5 a day and the most i took orally was three a day, breakfast, lunch, and dinner. it didn't help me dialate pre-labor. i was a finger tip dialated during my first check at my induction. and 9 hours later i was 9 1/2 cm. it was my first baby too. try it out, let us know how it goes :]]

Well I hear that it's not supposed to help you until you go into labor. Like it's supposed to make it easier for your cervix to dilate once labor starts.. therefore making labor shorter. I'm going to wait until I go to bed to insert one, but I am going to take one now. I just wanted to make sure you werent supposed to take more than a certain amount.

EPO ripens the cervix and makes it softer...semen has the same effect...I never tried it, but I did use the liquid inside the softgels to do perinium stretches
