Signs that a membrane stripped has worked?

Are there any signs or symptoms that a membrane strip might be working?

I just got my second one, and wouldn't like to know if there is anything to look out for.

  • i got mine stripped and it worked...there were no "special" signs...after I got them stripped I just started feeling contractions and had a bit of bloody show, but keep in mind spotting is normal after getting your membranes stripped so dont take a little bit of blood as a sign it worked...wait for the contractions

  • With my dd I had my membrane stripped once and started having contractions at 5am the next morning. After about 4 hours my contractions became regular and I went to the hospital. Nothing irregular before the contractions started though.

  • Ok thanks.
    Also, if it's going to work because it's not guaranteed to work is it within 48 hours, or 72 because I've heard both.
