welcome to HealthcareMagic
You are full term at 38 weeks and 6 days and you may go into labor in few days so there is visible reason because of which you want to get induce for labor so urgently.Taking of castor oil gives rise to increased intestinal movement and does push a female into labor but not always.So if you want you can try but the better option is that if you have any specific reason for getting your labor preponed then please consult your Gynaecologist and she will do the needful that is if you don't go in labor she may start medicine for induction of labor.
