    I bought some today as I heard its meant to help.
    What does it do exactly? And do I really have to insert it vaginally or can I just take it orally and have the same affect?

    its supposed to help soften and ripen your cervix, it will not put you in labor or anything like that, but when you go into labor it will help you dilate faster since your cervix will already be soft you can take it orally or vaginally though some women experience skin irritations when insterted vaginally. you can take up to 5000 mg total split up how ever you want to .
