    Can you use an ice pack in your undies? I took a good 6-8 weeks to get over the pain. Just sitting wrong would send daggers through me. If you haven done try staggering the panadol and neurofen so you are always having something. Big hugs @Tainted

    I tore and was stitched with my first, I ended up buying one of those mini life preservers to sit on, it really helped.

    I also got a bottle of colloidal silver spray from the chemist and sprayed the wound often. I think it really helped.

    I also got medi-honey, and smeared honey thickly on pads so it contacted the wound, I'm sure that helped with the healing.

    Take care, heal soon...

    For me, the actual painful pain lasted about 2-3 weeks. After that, mild discomfort when moving/sitting but not constant pain. Still sore when pooping for over a month, and sore to touch for several months. It was almost 10 months before sex started to feel normal again.

    6-8 weeks for the pain to go.

    My mum recommended salt baths, but the thought of a bath while I was bleeding, grossed me out

    I had a second degree tear but no stitches.

    I drank ural to reduce acidity and kept a jug in toilet and poured water over the area while weeing to reduce pain.

    I used a tea tree solution as well.

    Hopefully they heal quickly for you.

    Movicol (to soften stools, so they pass gently) and Ural (to reduce the burn). It took about 3 weeks to stop hurting, and even now (11 months later) I get the odd twinge if I walk too far with a heavy bag.

    Thanks for the replies and advice. It has been 4 weeks and 2 days since I had my DD and the pain has settled a lot. When I attempt number twos I am still in agony and bleeding. I'm paranoid they may have put too many stitches in? Or is this to be expected?

    It's still early days. Keep taking some laxatives to help you while your healing. It's took 12 weeks before my stitches fell out. Lactulose works well if u drink it daily.
    It's a slow process and I remember it being the absolute pits. Hang in there!!

    Are you bleeding from your anus or vagina? If it's your anus you might have a tear/fissure that isn't healing? I had this the first time it was awful. Get it as soft as you can, I drank loads of pear juice and are licorice on top of the general extra fibre/water etc. It will get better! But if you think something else is up get it checked out for sure.

    Try wrapping some toilet paper around your fingers and supporting the area as you do number 2s. I had to do this for about 6 weeks until I felt confident enough to go on my own. Pear juice and stool softeners too. Try and get checked out by your gp too just to be safe and not do any further damage. X
