I had a forcep delivery and 2nd degree tears and I am still feeling sore/achy down there. I went to see a private gyno 6 weeks ago and she said that all my stitching etc was done really well and I had no sign of infection, basically she said that the low oestrogen in my system can make it more sensitive. So apparently every thing is fine but I am totally frustrated of feeling sore has anyone else had this and do you have any advice please!!!!!

Poor you. How awful.

Is it painful all the time? What kind of pain? I had an episiotomy with forceps delivery and I get really achy during my period just like how it was when i was healing. Worse if I am standing/walking/carrying dd, who is now 18mths. How long since your delivery?
