I would ask your GP or go and speak to a nice lady at your local family planning clinic to see if they have aby advice for you. You may get refered.

Go see your GP, I put up with this for 9 yrs, until I had my second child actually. And the doc who sewed me up after I had dd, said 'oh someone's made a right old mess of you haven't they' proceeded to repair said mess, all the while tutting and muttering 'oh dear'blush. Of course, I really should have gone and got it sorted out years before and wish I had.

i tore really badly with ds2. Fortunately i had a very good doctor to do the stitches. Took a long time to heal and i was worried about them, but my hv said they had surgeons at the hospital that would re-do/repair and areas that did not heal. Definitely go to see your gp who could refer you.

if very severe they can repair. but I found I got a lot of help from some internal physiotherapy and then didn't need a repair after all.

(had to go private mind you)

I had this with my first child. I went to the doctor and was basically told that I would just have to put up with it for the rest of my life shock. Then I tore in exactly the same place with dd1 and was stitched up and everything has been fine since.

I'm not suggesting you have another child btw, but my experience suggests it can be repaired.
