Several mechanical and biochemical methods have been used to induce labor throughout modern obstetrics. We review and compare mechanical and medical methods of labor induction, along with several new uterotonic agents such as mifepristone (RU 486) and misoprostol, which can be conveniently administered orally and managed in the outpatient clinic.
