Hahaha not silly questions at all!!!!
When i was 39weeks pregnant with DS#1 i went into our local chemist!! I knew alot of the staff there personally, i was telling them how over it i was as you can all understand anyway one of the girls went and got the pharmacist and he told me about EPO!! He said it is safe to use internally from 36 weeks. He told me to use 2 capsules each night, to put a pin prick in it as the oil then leaks out and the capsule dissolves quicker.
He said it helps to ripen the cervix in preperation for labour but it wont induce labour unless your body and bubs are ready!! He also said that using EPO makes for a more efficent labour and birth!! Not sure how true that is!! Although my first labour was 4hrs 51mins and second was 3hrs 17mins from very first twinge of pain!!!
EPO is generally used for PMS and dermatitis
The ones you have christinem75 are fine to use. You can use them orally from 34 weeks but they are not as effective, if at all!!
You can get them from supermarkets i used Blackmores Nutritional Oil EPO.
Hope that helps!!!
