Did the Dr strip your membranes? Did it hurt or not?

If given the choice would you do it again?

Did it start your labor? How soon after?

  • I had mine done twice and it worked the 1st time...I went that night...we tried it with the next kid but I didnt go for almost a week. I think the whole cervix check is painful anyways so i didnt really notice a difference.

  • I did with my first around 41 weeks. It wasn't a big deal and I went into labor the next day. Then I think I did with my third as well but I can't remember. It was not bad at all in the long scheme of things. I would do it again if I went late.

  • I had my membranes stripped with my first pregnancy and it hurt like hell, and it did NOTHING for me. I will NEVER go through it again.
