Stripping membrane w/o consent

So I went in for my 38 week yesterday and opted for a cervix check. I was 4cm and 70e. About an hour later a was bleeding bright red, like more than a heavy period. Then I started having contractions every 5 min with menstrual-like pains. They told me to head to l&d. Doctor at hospital checked me and said the dr earlier stripped my membranes and this was normal to feel miserable with bleeding and contractions. I walked the halls for an hour and there was no cervical change, so they sent me home. This morning, no bleeding, just uncomfortable contractions. I was SO ready to have my baby. That was awful.
