  • It worked for me. I went into labor less than 24 hours later. I can't remember exactly how many but I think it was something like 15-16.

  • I had mine stripped too and about 18 hours later, my water broke... except that when they stripped the membranes, they realized that it wasn't the head they felt and the fact that my water broke provoked a somewhat emergency c section.
