Membranes stripped

I just had my membranes stripped for a second time today. I'm 39 weeks and I'm bleeding a lot more than i did for the first time i got my membranes stripped. Is this common?

  • Its rather common to have bloody show after any cervical exam, especially when the membranes are being stripped! I had mine stripped 3 times (once at 4cm and twice at 5cm) and it didnt do crap for me so this time I will pass!

  • Well i had my membranes stripped last week and bled a little. She stripped them again this week and i bled more than i had the first time. But this time my blood wasn't as gooey I guess. Today my blood has been bright red and with some pieces of dark tissue i guess? It looks like period blood but it isn't gushing really. Just kind of dripping if i sit on the toilet.
