My baby will be 4 months this week, and I still have some sort of vaginal discomfort. I had a very traumatic Vaginal delivery that resulted in a third degree tear, I also had an episotomy because they had to use the vacuum.
The pain compared tot he first few weeks has gotten gradually better, but I still feel little bit of discomfort around the lips of the vagina, we have had sex like 3 times only since giving birth and it has been painful, last time I even had a little bit of pinkish blood. I feel like things down there are not the same.. it feels sore.
Anybody with the same problems? Shouldn't I be healed already?
Iam 6 months pp and had to book an appt with my doctor. She's going to do a physical. We tried having sex twice and it has been sooooooo painful. I also had a 3rd degree episiotomy with a vacuum delivery. We tried again last night, it was a bit better cuz I had him use his fingers first and go gentle. You have to focus on relaxing your muscle as well. I am also doing Kegals everyday. Mine still hurts when you tug on the skin, if I wipe too hard, and definitely when we have sex.
As or your pinkish blood... Tell your doctor. I never had blood but I've had the pain. I think it's jut something I will be dealing with until it fully heals in a year or so!
I had 4th degree tear, episiomity and forceps. 6 and a half months on still sore. It hurts as previous poster said even if I just wipe to hard with toilet paper, sex brings me to tears, we have had sex 4 times since my LO was born and each time has been awful. My doctor said its because everything down there is all scar tissue now, including my entire perinium, so nothing stretches anymore, hence the pain. Giving birth sucks
