There are many problems assocated with this med and it isn't approved to be used for inducing labor. It should only be used if your or your baby's life is in danger. I wouldn't let them induce me before 42 weeks or longer. I went 43 weeks with my first baby.
I was very ill when I was pregnant with my third and final child. My life was in danger and I had been in the hospital for weeks. I was induced at 36 weeks with cervidil. It was 22 years ago when few people knew anything about problems with cervidil. I knew because I had been a childbirth educator. I was lucky and had no problems. Of course I had to have pitocin the next morning. I didn't need anything for pain and was in labor for about 9 hours after pitocin was started. Easy vaginal delivery.

Here is some information so you can make informed consent. I read the drug info and it sounds like it has now been approved.
