I had a vacuum assisted delivery with 3rd degree tearing. Internal and external tearing.
I took a long time to be pain free. It took about 6 weeks before I could stand for any decent length of time without lots of pain.

I had grazing too no tear or stitches but I was in pain for at least 7-11 days. I wish someone had told me how painful that would be. I was totally blind sided. What I did was get a warm-hot face washer and hold it over the graze while I peed so that no wee would touch it. I didn't find any releif by peeing in the shower or running water over while I peed. It had to be completely covered away.

I had a normal vaginal birth. 2nd degree tear and three stitches plus some grazing. It took less than 2 weeks for it to stop hurting when sitting or standing, no more than three weeks before the pain while peeing stopped (i'm sure that was from the graze!).
Not sure when the stitches fully dissolved but i couldn't see or feel them after 4 weeks.
Had a pap smear at my 6 week check and was told I had some scar tissue.
DD is now 8 weeks and it's no different to pre-baby!
