Slightly embarrassing question - does anyone else still feel sore several years after tearing during labour?

my youngest is 4 now and I have had 2 natural deliveries, where i tore really badly on each ocassion (Grrrrrrrr)

Frm time to time i still feel sore internally, is this normal?

I feel sore in the general area I was stitched when auntie flo is due.

I had second/third degree tears with both my deliveries - no stitches either time at my request. I can honestly say I have never had any pain as a result - youngest is 2.5.

No help to you - just a point of reference.

If I were you I would go to the gp to get it investigated.

My DD is 14 months and I tore and get pain when having a period. It hurts in the area where I had the stiches if I stand up for a long time.

kbaby, i had that too (pain when standing) but it did settle down eventually. I just get the ocassional ache now and then, maybe is it to do with hormones?

On BD sometimes it hurts where I had my second degree tear 9 months on. Seems to be getting better all the time though. Guess it could be where the nerves were and they may have been slightly damaged? As well as any scar tissue.

I have same as kbaby - tore badly and was cut for ventouse with my first. Maybe some nerves were cut/damaged and increase blood supply at certain times/hormones do make it worse - hadnt ever thought about it - just thought it was fact of motherhood - how accepting am I??? No problems or tears with 2nd though - but still pain from first!

I was cut for a ventouse delivery with 1st baby and have no pain. I think you should see GP to get it sorted.
