Vaginally is best and you can do as much as you want.  I just did 5 for two nights and was in labor that morning. I was 41 weeks

I started using it at 35 weeks started out with 2 vaginally every night and then when I hit 36 weeks I did 3. I'm 37 weeks today and I did 4 last night. I can definitely feel a difference in my vaginally it's sore and been cramping a little.  I've never tried them orally. Once I turn 38 weeks I'll be doing 5 of them vaginally

Please do not insert it vaginally unless your provider instructs you to. You should not be using it at all with out talking to your provider. It is generally safe for most people, but there are some people who should not.
If you are not a medical professional, herbalist or experienced with it in any other way besides "I heard" or "I was told", you shouldn't be giving out this advice.
Newmomma2be, talk to your doctor or midwife first. Typically, an ORAL, dose of two capsules twice a day beginning at 37 weeks is safe. Once you have already begun to dilate and your provider gives you the ok, it is OK to insert a couple vaginally to help the labor process.
EPO, does not induce labor in any way, shape or form.  It is used to soften your cervix.

I told my doctor i was using it and she just said OK good.. i won't take it orally because of the fact that on the bottle it says it's a dietary supplement

All vitamins are a dietary supplement. Calcium, prenatals, iron are all dietary supplement. Your statement makes no sense.
