3 weeks after a second degree tear
It's been three weeks since my vbac and a second degree tear. I've had a look and it looks all normal down there. Can't see a scar or anything different. So I touched my perineum and its very tender. Is that normal? How long til it feels normal? Also with a second degree tear to perineum is there anything into the vagina? Or is it all just on the outside?? I remember the midwife saying it was second degree but not very deep. Don't know what that means and didn't think to ask details at the time.

With my 1st I had a second degree tear, it was tender until just before my 6 week appointment. We tried to dtd after my appointment and even though it didn't seem tender it was sore afterwards. A week later we tried again and it was fine

Mine was sore until maybe 3 months. Not terribly sore and it was healed perfectly (wasn't a very serious 2nd degree tear either), but just the vaginal opening in general was tender. It's much better now.

I had three 2nd degree tears :wacko: And just had an ultrasound today confirming lasting damage. I am being referred for physio now :)
