Who's had their membrane stripped?

My OB stripped my membrane this morning, and I was curious as to others' experiences with having this done. How soon after did your labor start? Thanks!

It didn't do a D**N thing for me but HURT SO BAD! For me having my membranes stripped was WORSE than childbirth with NO MEDS!!! OUCH!

They had to induce me.

Did nothing for me either. Had it done at least twice.

It worked for me with the 2nd pregnancy and I was in active labor about 5 hours after it but the 3rd pregnancy nothing happened....

Re: Who's had their membrane stripped?

never worked for me and had it done 3 times


the first time i had it done 2 days before my due date, it was a full moon, and i walked, curb hopping style, for 2 hours that night/
NADA!!!

I belive no matter what you do, babies dont come until they are ready. you cant rush them out.

Re: Who's had their membrane stripped?

I went into labor as soon as it was done! I had my DD within 24hrs. I was 2cm dialated when I went in and the MW stretched me to 3. The day before my due date. I didn't have any contractions before hand either. I don't think it can hurt, but I have heard that it may take 2-3 trys to really get things going.

I had it done twice with my last pregnancy. I had already lost my mucous plug and was dilated to 5cm the last time I had it done and it still did nothing.

Had it done. Was induced later. Did progress a cm in the seven hour interval between stripping and induction.

Re: Who's had their membrane stripped?

I had it done w/pg #3 and I nearly climbed up the table! Aftwards my MW said to take 2 Tbsp Castor Oil first thing next morn. I took one and my labor started soon after that, but stalled by 2 pm. At 6 pm I took another and went into labor. I went to the hosp at 9 pm and was only 3 cm. My doula gave me some herbals to kickstart my labor and boy did it work! I delivered at 1:45 a.m.

As a caution I must add that if you've had a C-Section, Castor Oil is not recommended. In a small percentage of woman it can cause tetanic contractions as can Pitocin. My friend had a uterine rupture. She'd had one section and then used the Castor Oil and had a uterine rupture. She knew something was wrong with the contractions. Her section was because she had a 13 # 9 oz baby with a true knot and she was at least 10 days overdue.

I used mineral oil with pg1 and castor oil w/pg3
