Ferning of Vaginal Fluid: Sensitivity and Specificity

Introduction: None written. Excerpt from the entry in Premature Rupture of Membranes:
'ferning' refers to formation of crystals as the fluid dries (in a palm-leaf pattern). Note that cervical mucus itself will display ferning but the pattern is much thicker than that from amniotic fluid.
