excrutiating, like someone taking a large knife and ripping me open, but temporary

Meh, I didn't find it hurt all that much (and I was induced with Pitocin and no epidural). I know it's hard not to be scared, just remember no matter what happens your body WILL heal.

I don't remember feeling a ring of fire at all actually, both births (one with epidural one without) I tore in exactly the same spot, about 1cm, no big deal... the biggest thing is when you're pushing and they said stop or hold on, listen! That's when baby is coming out and the harder you push at that time the more force on the skin around... but while I thought pushing was the absolute hardest and most painful thing in the birth, I didn't feel the burning part

You can also do a perenial massage to help stretch the skin ahead of time and improve the elasticity, I got my husband to do it witb EPO.. it hurts but I think it helped

It hurts, but honestly, it's not that bad, and it's very temporary. I tore too (with my 3rd and 4th) and didn't even feel it. I had no pain relief either (including no gas and air).

It felt like Satan was pulling on every nerve in my vagina. And not a quick little pinch. No that lasted for a WHILE. I know I was cussing a lot. And yelling at people. And generally being very unpleasant. It hurt so so so bad. I seriously just wanted the baby to crawl back up into my uterus. Not looking forward to that.

I definitely didn't think it was the worst bit... definitely not. Yeah it was bad, it feels like you're splitting in half, it does burn... I yelled out "its STINGING!!!!" with my second �� But it doesn't last long at all and it's the last bit before you get your baby! I definitely think transition is worse than the ring of fire

Honestly I always found the pressure worse than the burning/stinging!

It's not nice. It stings/burns but it's over fast. The pressure from the baby dropping into the birth canal is much worse.
