Castor oil is a laxative. That is why you were running to the toilet all the time when you took it the first time. It can put you into labor, BUT AT THE RISK OF YOUR BABY AND YOU. So personally I would not take the risk. What it does is it dehydrates you because you are going to the bathroom sooo much. This puts stress on your body and your baby......putting your baby at risk. For those that do go into labor their babies are often born with issues.....due to the stress that was put on them. Personally I would not risk anything to delivery early....or before doc. induces. There is a reason why doctors induce and not the patient. Why go 9/10 months and then do something that puts your baby's life at risk.
