I was induced with both of my births. I found that the gel didn't do much for me either time, so don't get too disappointed if nothing happens.
First thing in the morning they attempted to break my waters , with the first baby, this wasn't possible as my cervix was still closed , but with the second, she was born 37 minutes later!
With my first, they inserted the sintocin drip and that started labour very quickly and my waters spontaneously broke about 45 minutes later, and DD1 was born within 90 minutes of starting the drip.
Csection is a last resort. But there can be an increased risk of intervention. Although luckily in my case , once labour was artificially started , my body kicked in and did its thing. Drug free and with no further need for assistance. Good luck!
