Hey I had my beautiful daughter on the 21st and with her came along a minimal internal tear. I don't really feel much pain from that at all, other than a pulling itchy sensation when I move around too much. What is really killing me is the bruised feeling in my clitoris. Everything was fine until a couple of days ago, it seems to have swollen and it is very painful! When I walk it feels like so much pressure, I can't even sit down right. I figured the stitches/tear would cause me pain but no. Just my clitoral area. I was catheterized during labor, so I would understand if my urethra was sore or it hurt to urinate. It doesn't at all. It is only the aforementioned area that hurts. With that said, is it possible I'm allergic to the witch hazel pads or the dermoplast spray? I would relate the pain to the trauma of delivery if it hurt since I gave birth but it has only started the past 3 days. And it is getting worse. I tried to call MW but left a message as nobody answered today. Now it is the weekend and I can't contact her. Perhaps the swelling and pain is from delivery, but it just took this long for it to start hurting? I don't know. Anyone else have a similar problem and have any advice? Does every woman who gives birth vaginally get this achey pain? I have tried a gel ice pack, but even the ice pack feels like too much pressure on the painful area. I hope this doesn't last too long! Please help me lol.
