I have an upcoming appointment but lately I have been having some pain around my perineum. It feels like it is stretched or torn and I am not sure if I should be worried or if anyone else has experienced this or knows what this may be from?
I also feel like my vagina is more tight during sex and sex is more difficult now.
I am getting worried. I tried having sex with my boyfriend last night and it was sore and felt torn and bled a little after. We only did it for a short time because it started hurting so it just bled a tiny amount but it still scared me.
Some women lose their labido during pregnancy, thus making sex dryer and more difficult, which could explain the 'tightness' feeling. This is due to hormones etc. Maybe try using lube. If you are dryer then it could scratch or slightly tear the Perineum during intercourse.
Talk to your midwife or dr and see what they suggest. They may also check for any infection such as thrush ( very common in pregnancy) as this can also irritate that area.
Hope this helps! Good luck xxxx
