Primary Outcome Measures:
  • The primary outcome is the preoperative baseline cervical dilatation in the two treatment groups. [ Time Frame: 24 hours ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Difference between baseline cervical dilatation at recruitment and preoperative dilatation. [ Time Frame: 14 days ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
  • Women with cervical dilatation ≥ 5 mm. [ Time Frame: 14 days ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
  • Acceptability. [ Time Frame: 14 days ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
  • Number of dilatations judged as "difficult." [ Time Frame: 14 days ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
  • Frequency of complications. [ Time Frame: 14 days ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
