Sore clitoris after childbirth?


I had my son 9 days ago. I had a natural birth with only grazes. About 2 days ago i started to get a pain in my clitoris. It feels overly sensitive and sore and it hurts when i put any pressure on it, like its bruised. It hurts most when i walk or when i sit down (which puts pressure on it). Is this normal? Help!

Hi Hun,
I had this, and it lasted a while... But it's totally fine now!

I'm sure it's normal.

Congratulations on your new baby!

I had this, too. Can't remember when it went away. Before 6 weeks, I think.

Congrats on the birth of your baby.

I am pretty sure I am feeling that too, at first it was everyday soreness there but now it's like only every now and then when I pee or put pressure, I HOPE it goes away.

I had this as well.. it felt really twingey and tender for a while but I just tried to ignore it.. can't remember how long mine lasted. Hopefully it will go away naturally for you, if not then you could always mention it to your Midwife if you still see her? There's some products that can help with inflammation down there after giving birth. Just had a quick search and the top one that came up was Bee Relieved Perineal Healing Spray. Maybe give something like that a try to calm it down

Sounds familiar...especially when I ran out of the pain pills the hospital sent me home with. But it felt better in a week or so.

Had it too. I was also worried that I will never enjoy sex properly again. Luckily it went away sometime. I think by 4-5 weeks.
