I had it. it was called cervidel, something like that. It's inserted kinda like ... yeast infection medicine (sorry, couldn't think of a better way to describe it, lol). It's supposed to get the cervix opened or thinned or whatever. If it's you doctor who wants to use it, then ask he or she to explain. I know why I had it, but everyone is different.

I also wanted to add that I was not dilated at all and had no contractions prior to the cervidel. About 5 minutes after it was inserted, I had a painful one. Not sure if it was related or not. No more painful contractions after that. I asked to have it removed a few hours later though because the babys heartrate was decreasing every time I moved and that had not happened before the cervidel. I decided not to go any further and requested a c-section. Cord around his neck (which explained the decreased heartrate when I moved around, poor kid).
I'm not saying anything about my experience was due to the cervidel, just sayin' :) I actually wanted a c-section anyway and my OB knew that but suggested trying for a vaginal birth first and I agreed.
