I'm 11 weeks pg with dc2. I had an episiotomy with dc1 who is nearly 2 and for the last few weeks I've been feeling quite sore there. Last night dh and I had sex and I felt such sharp pain I had to stop. Today its really sore to touch and I have a constant heavy aching feeling along the scar line. Has anyone experienced anything like this? Wtf is it and did it get better on its own?
Sorry haven't experienced this but didn't want to read and run! If I were you I'd keep an eye on it and if it happens again see docs. Have you got your booking in app soon? Midwife might be able to help. However if it's causing you lots of pain I'd get to docs ASAP x
Thanks Roz, I've seen mw already but didn't mention it. I'm not seeing her again until I'm 16 weeks but I'll definitely speak to her then. Just wondering if I'm the only one as I've never heard of this before!
I have the same situation but am 24 weeks with twins - also had an episiotomy with DD who is now 2.10. I get a heavy achy pain in that whole region and have been assuming it was the episiotomy scar. Anyway it seemed to be getting worse the last couple of weeks so I took a look - I actually have a huge varicose vein going right down one side of my vulva It looks pretty bad - I'm fairly certain this is what's causing the pain. Not much help but thought I'd let you know there may be another cause (though I hope you don't end up with varicose veins either!)
i have had a lot of pain and pressure on my episiotomy scar since the start of my pregnancy (3 years after that delivery). It started around 14 weeks and not long after i started seeing large varicose veins. The veins may not be showing but it could be extra blood pooling in that area.
