Can anyone please tell me if being induced makes labour pains worse than if labour was to start natural?

I think it depends how they do it. I think generally people say that it doesn't make it more painful but means that the contractions are close together straight away like wham! You just don't get the slow built up that you do naturally

if you have pessaries they are just kick starting the process so the pains should be whatever they were going to be like with a natural birth (painful or otherwise!) but if you go on to have a drip it can be very painful

ARM can also mean the baby's head drops onto the cervix harder than it would do with waters breaking late in the first stage.
