    So I am just over 3 weeks postpartum and my crotch is still hurting! I had a 3rd degree tear and an episiotomy. Is it supposed to still be hurting? It isn't a stinging hurt like before, it is a bruise type hurt that sometimes throbs with pain. Nothing serious, just uncomfortable. I don't see my doctor for another 3 weeks.
    It also hurts to stop peeing or if I do kegals it is quite uncomfortable.

    So anyways, how long did you hurt for?

    i got a 3rd degree tear (no epistomoy) but i don't really feel sore anymore. I just get this odd kinda itchy feeling where my stitches obviously are, can be a bit niggly when i sit down aswell. Hope you heal up soon :hugs:

    I had a massive tear (Up, down, in and out!!) which took two docs over an hour to stitch up.... and I still get twinges from it even now.... 14 weeks later!!!

    But it took about 2 weeks for it to stop hurting when I went to the loo.

    i found wearing about 3 maternity pads helped alot cuz it gave me abit of support down there n made it easier to sit down.

    :rofl::rofl::rofl: Vajayjay....hahaha sorry...that amused me...it was about 4 weeks in total for me, i had no stiches or anything it just kinda felt awkward for a while i dunno if its gone back to normal or iv just got used to it ...:rofl: sorry im in such a giggly mood...

    By the way i found that pouring warm water on it while i pee'd helped :)

    I had an episiotomy and it can still feel tender now and salim is 9 weeks old. For the first 4 weeks I wore 2 maternity pads even when my bleeding stopped. It sort of helped. Mostly now I can feel it when I cough,laugh or sneeze. Keep trying with your pelvic floor exercises though, It will get better. :hug:

    The first was my worst by far. I had an epi too. The Doctor did a good job it healed up fast. I would say the worst pains were the first two weeks. I bled forever it seemed the first pregnancy. Has been 11 years, so ? hmmm I am guessing it was about 7 weeks of bleeding.

    I had a episiotomy, like you mine is no longer stinging it just feels more bruised. Or If a little tingly- I guess this is a sign of healing.

    But sometimes it hurts when I sit down or I have been walking for ages :cry::cry:

    i had three 2nd degree tears, and so needed plenty of stitches. Id say the first three weeks were the worst, but the past two weeks i havent felt too bad down there. It felt like a bruise, and slowly ached less and less.
