Sex after fourth degree tear

Hi ladies, I suffered a 3C/ borderline 4th degree tear having DD1 21 months ago. All seems to have mostly healed well apart from some occasional aching and an inability to control wind when walking (sorry.... tmi!)

However sex is still an issue, it is always painful initially and then just feels weird and even maybe a bit numb once the initial (stretching?) pain subsides.

Has anyone else experienced this? Did it get better with time? Is there anything I could do to improve things?

Really hoping it isn't permanent as I'm starting to feel terrible that things are still not yet back to normal in this area even though my very patient husband has been brilliant and isn't pushing things at all...

Yes i did many years ago after dc1.
By 21 months you shouldn't be feeling like this. I would visit your GP.
