Re: Induction more dangerous for vbac?

Ingesting, technically, would get it into your blood stream more quickly because of how it's absorbed in the mouth and the gut. I did read it once, and I can't remeber where, that semen "may" contain prostaglandins. I always thought it DID contain prostaglandins, so when I read that it made me think, is there some semen that DOESN'T contain prostaglandins? Here I had been saying all along in my classes, that it does. It threw me a little. Anybody heard anything like that?

I have got to believe that if I were too uncomfortable to have sex, ingesting semen would just be something that would make me a vomitous mess.
