With DD1 I remember being sore for only a couple of weeks and thats with a few stitches.

With DD2 I am still imflammed/bruised down below and it doesn't seem to be getting better. Have put witch hazel gel etc on it, but still no cure! Arrrggghhh....good job DD2 is the last.

Anyone else gone through similar?

Have you spoken to your midwife or doctor about this as you could have an infection.

My soreness started to go after a few days maybe a week. No idea if it helped but I took arnica tablets and had shallow baths with lavender oil.
