Dr. Brian Nguyen
Obstetrics and Gynecology 13 years experience
Cervidil Ripening: Cervidil is not an induction agent, but it is a ripening agent, which means it is used to help prepare the cervix for labor induction -- softening and dilating. When the cervix is ripe then the provider will often rupture membranes or start pitocin (oxytocin). The effectiveness is good but dependent most upon when it is used, which is your provider's decision.
