  • IF it's going to work, it usually happens within a few hours. Could be a day or two, but it's possible at that point to be just a coincidence. Anything longer than that has nothing to do with stripping of the membranes.

  • Do you mean having her membranes stripped? It isn't a guarantee. It could happen immediately, it could happen in a month. If it was a guarantee, there would be a lot of very rich doctors out there!! LOL

  • OOOOUUUCCCHHH!

    who on earth SCRAPES their cervix?
    If any OB tried to pull that on me, I'd kick them in the face.

  • It's really not that painful.

  • Within a few hours up through a day or so.
    But by that point it may be more a coincidence if labor begins.
