I was 2 days past my due date and was induced. I was inserted with the cervidil string at 4 pm (the insertion was very painful!) and as promised, my contractions began in 2 hours.

Comment:
My cervix was softened but was not dilated at all, I am a 37y/o who was overdue at 42 weeks and the placenta was producing a ton of amnio fluid and my care provider was concerned that would cause baby to present in a dangerous way. I was given two options to begin the process; we chose Cervadil because it was removable and therefore a bit more controllable than the other IV option. It was not me ... Show Full Comment
