Thank you for your query.
Castor oil is generally used as a strong laxative, but if used in pregnancy it can lead to start of the labor by stimulating the uterus. Some women use castor oil as birth control or an abortion inside the vagina. Whatever is used during pregnancy should be used with caution and under medical supervision and care.
Hope that answers your queries. Have a good day.
