Poor you! Definitely worth getting that checked out by a doctor but it sounds like your body might be taking a little longer to heal.

I was exactly the same - assisted forcep delivery and an episiotomy - and they sewed a little bit of tissue that was supposed to be on the inside, on the outside. So, it just took a little longer to heal (about six months I think).

As I say, get it checked by your GP to be on the safe side.

I would imagine you have just stretched a bit further than normal - I had ds2 3 and a half years ago, didn't have sex again till the other week (I had a second degree tear, all fine, all healed) and after sex I had a tiny bit of bleeding.

I think sometimes things heal a bit tighter than they were and just a bit of an adjustment.

I wouldn't worry too much. Have you seen a physio about the pelvic floor issues? They could give you some really good exercises, better than the usual ones I think.

Impressed at your doing yoga. I have never got round to it!
