Bad Episiotomy - please help. Asked doctor to look at my undercarriage at postnatal check because knew things were not right. Had episiotomy 7 weeks ago (due to forcep delivery) and I still cannot sit down for a wee as it stings too much over the raw skin. Also still a bit sore to sit down. Doctor agreed it hasn't healed properly and has given me antibiotics to try but thinks I will have to be referred. Please can anyone tell me if they were repaired successfully and how bad the recovery was as I am terrified of the can't sit down, can't walk, hurts all the time stage again. Also how long did you have to wait to be fixed? Have read some previous posting of women who thought things were fine until they tried to have sex but this is different because I am too sore to even think about it still so don't know what damage there is inside at all. Please help. I am really upset about all this as this has spoilt the experience of what was otherwise a more positive birth experience for me after a previous c-section.

Loobywoof - why no start your own thread with a relevant heading, then people who have experience can help you. I had two sections so am no help at all.

We had an accident about 3 weeks back and started a thread on it. I got it 30 hours after and felt fine up until the nxt day when I had the runs really bad.

Was gutted when my AF arrived though???

hi there, what's AF?

was really severely ill yesterday, with the runs, was on the toilet almost all night. and had really bad headaches the whole day also having quite a heavy and long period, well it seems long and heavy to me cos i normally have very scant bleeding with the minipill

hazlinh - AF = Aunty Flo.... or Period!

Definitely sounds like the MAP has worked for you. I've taken it 4 times in my life. First time I felt SO sick and tired I just wanted to sleep for days. Then I had a really heavy bleed too. Don't know what that meant, but know that I'm fine and I didn't get pregnant.

within 72 hours. It's not 100% though.

sorry you had a rough time with it hazlinh.

MAP in the past used to be two hormones and that was when it caused loads of nausea - in recent years it's been reformulated to contain only progestogen, and it should no longer cause nausea, nor does it damage an established pregnancy. all that was probably in the link but i read about it in the papers this weekend and realised why it was such a different experience in 1990 and 2003! best of luck.
