Could this cause me to go into labor?? adult content

Today when I went to my doctor he checked me... said I was 50% effaced. While he was checking me he pushed down on the baby really hard and also dug at my cervix, it felt like he was gonna shove his finger through it... really painful. But since then I have been having really intense contractions and I am in alot of pain... like some horrid period cramps... what do u think? Could that end up making me go into labor??

  • Sounds like the doc broke your's been known to happen and yes it can send you into labor thats why they usually do it. Good luck with everything.

  • By stripping your membranes basically they sweep the cervix area. I had my daughter almost exactly 24 hours after I had my membranes stripped.

  • Oh and there really isn't "fluid" from stipping membranes. I had a little bit of bleeding as soon as it it was done, but none after that.

  • sounds like your dr stripped you membranes. i'd said you are probably having this baby soon. i'm just confused why he'd strip your membranes if you are scheduled for a c-section....

  • It sounds like that your Doctor stripped your membranes. Yes, it is possible that this will make you go into labor.
