If you were still sore 5 months after birth, did it get better on its own?

Or did you need some kind of intervention? What was it? Did it work?

First baby. PPH. 2nd degree tear. Still very sore. No infection. Tight stitches. An understanding DH!

GP has not referred me to Gyno yet. Should I push for it or wait it out?

Thank you, Hx

If you are still sore then i would push for a referral, or at least get a second opinion, just to make sure all is as it should be.

I had a 4th degree tear (& episiotomy, forceps, shoulder dystocia, pph) 11 months ago and i am still sore. You may need to be more specific about how you are sore, is it tightness, general discomfort etc? I was referred to gynae within weeks of the birth, have seen physio etc. I still have what i would describe as general discomfort but i put this down to the severity of the tear & the time it takes for scar tissue to de-sensitize.
