TMI...my vagina split open like a ripe tomato during the recent birth of my second daughter. The doctor was down there with his serious face on for ages sewing me up. I asked him if it went all the way from my vagina to my butthole and he said, "almost." The recovery was more difficult than I expected. It has been three weeks, I can't believe it's only three more before I can have sex again. Which I am terrified about. So I guess my question is....What is sex like after a serious tear? My husband likes to make the "throwing a hotdog down a hallway joke." But seriously, was sex ever okay again? I really liked sex a lot.
