If you induced and had a vaginal delivery - NOTHING happens to the scar
YOU CAN induce after a c-section - you can ONLY use certain medications to induce - you can use pitocin and you can use Cervidil - you can NOT use Misoprostol (also known as cytotec).
You can continue to wait even after 37 weeks to see if you go into labor or not - BUT you need to be either induced or have have a c-section by 39 weeks - you do NOT want to wait past 39 weeks
Try to have the baby vaginally - it can be successful - so give a try and if successful then you will not have to recover from surgery
Your cs scar is fine at 16 months - a little sooner than we like - but as long as you are in the hospital and monitored you will be safe
I wish you well

I do not know what is the protocol here for induction , I can choose? What I know that it will be through IV.
then it will be pitocin - it is NOT your choice - it is the choice of the doctor - as doctors have their preference - just as I do - your doctor chooses the SAFER method for you
What should I do if I did not have normal labor contractions at 37 weeks?do you have any recommendation to induced normal delivery? (natural)
cytotec can be through IV?
You can wait until 39 weeks as I have ALREADY written for you - I have answered that question already - scroll UP
cytotec is NOT IV - and you ARE NOT a candidate for cytotec -
no I mean exercises etc
or bouncing on a gym ball
yes you can do that - it does not help - but you can if you want
The ONLY reason for exercises - HONESTLY - it is to OCCUPY your mind - but it does NOTHING to enhance labor
