    Default Pain after giving birth

    Hi there. I've had one child, he was a big bub (4.5kgs). I suffered a second degree tear giving birth.

    17 months on it still hurts when I DTD, often bleeding. I've had it checked by my GP and they said the scar looked really good, it had been stitched up well.

    Does it really take this long to heal properly? Should I be getting a second opinion?

    Is it the stitches bleeding and sore or inside the vagina? You could have a type of prolapse. I would make an appointment with a gyno.

    Pretty sure it's just bleeding from where the stitches were...

    I would ask for a referral to see a Gynie, no need to put up with something that can be fixed.

    So it's not normal to take this long to heal properly?

    17mths is way too long for anything to do with the birth to be giving you pain & bleeding.

    I'd go see a Gyno. If the scar gas healed well it wouldn't be bleeding still, so it's probably something else.

    I also had this problem. I had 2nd deg tear with my dd. It had apparently healed well but I still had excruciating pain. So 18 months later I finally got in to see the gyno who told me the scar tissue had just grown too much. I had a Fentons procedure done (day surgery) which was a very painful recovery. But 2 weeks later it was much better and was the best thing I ever did. I feel completely normal again, which was a massive relief I would definitely get a referral for a gyno.
