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?
