Membranes stripped !

Okay ladies this is my 4th baby & I'm getting my membrane's stripped for the first time I'll be 37 weeks and I was just curious of how long did it take for labor to start for anybody who's had to get their membrane's stripped....

Normally unless ur ready to start labor stripping the membranes doesn't actually help start it by itself, so if your body was already ready to go into labor it might only take a few hours to start feeling contractions but other people habe them stripped multiple times with no change
