Membrane sweep

I'll be 38+5 at my next doctor's appt and they will be doing a membrane sweep. Has this induced labour for any of you? I never had it done with my first (he came at 40+5)

With my first I had it done and was in labor within 24 hours. But then I was in labor for over 3 days, so I kind of wished I had waited because it was brutal! But I think I would do it again lol just because it did get things going and helped things to get started

I had one with my 2nd and it was painful, and he still didnt come. They had to induce me a week later. This time i will wait.
