My baby is six weeks old, and my recovery has gone really smoothly. Bleeding has stopped, lochia has nearly stopped, and I feel good overall. But, I still have very uncomfortable and intense pressure in the perineum when I sit to go to the bathroom or when I've been sitting anywhere too long in general. I had a 2nd degree tear, stitches dissolved about 2 weeks pp. I have my follow up with my obgyn on Monday, but I'm curious if anyone has experienced or is experiencing this postpartum? How long does it take that pressure to go away? It's super uncomfy!

Omg, I've been wondering the same thing!! I thought something may have been stitched too tightly as it feels like a pressure/pulling when I sit in any position with my legs spread. I'm 3 months pp and still feel it regularly but haven't asked anyone about it...
