How do they "seperate the membranes", seriously? With instruments, with fingers? Can someone please explain it to me?!!blush

They run their fingers around the cervix to seperate it. It's not too bad! Uncomfortable but not painful.

With fingers they use some form of lube, don't worry, its not painful the key is to relax! I had two and neither worked for me but good luck opflowers
