No: If contractions have not started 24 hours after your water has broken then labor has not likely started. For women who are group b strep negative we usually start an induction after 12-24 hours after the water has broken if labor has not occurred. For women who are group b strep positive, we start antibiotics and induction shortly after the water has broken to reduce infection risk.
