  • both could mean labor is imminent. 75% is closer to delivery. You need to be 100% effaced and 10Cm dilated to start to push.

  • 75% is closer. it goes from 0-100%, 100% being ready to deliver along with 10cm dilated

  • It isn't really a good way to tell. With first pregnancies you tend to efface then dilate, with the later pregnancies you tend to dilate then efface
