Objectives: In the present study, the transvaginal ultrasonographic cervical measurement and Bishop scores (BSs) as the predictors of the onset of active labor and vaginal delivery were compared in matched patients.

Materials and Methods: This study was done on 150 nulliparous pregnant cases. Transvaginal sonography and digital examinations were performed to determine the cervical length and BS, followed by recording labor induction outcomes and analyzing the obtained values.

Results: According to the obtained results, the cervical length measurement using transvaginal sonography was an independent predictor for labor induction success (AUC = 0.309, P = 0.046). The cervical length of 26.75 and 26.25 mm and the BSs of >4 were both found to be the independent predictors of vaginal delivery (AUC = 0.237, P = 0.002 and AUC = 0.752, P = 0.013), respectively.

Conclusions: In general, the findings demonstrated that the transvaginal ultrasonographic cervical length measurement as an independent predictor factor for labor induction success in nulliparous women was better compared to the BS.
