  • It took 2 weeks for me to go into labor after being stripped and 2 false labor trips to the hospital.

  • I had my membranes stripped three times and was still induced. And I had a VERY favorable cervix all three times (4 cm & 80% effaced twice and 5cm & 80% effaced the third time) Its a waste of time IMO

  • I would not do it again. He did it once and it was hell i cramped for days and was in pain and spotting. He stripped it on wed and i went in to labor on sat but i dont even think thats why because i did not dialate anymore at all. so i would not do it again unless you want to, but most of the time its pain for people and does not work.
