I'm 6 weeks after labour on Sunday and I ended up having an episiotomy and a slight graze. It seemed to all heal well and was signed off by the midwives about 3 weeks ago as they said it was healing nicely and no signs of the stitches and was swabbed for an infection and was all clear. Past couple of weeks when I've had bowel movement more so I've had a bit of blood and occasionally it stings when wee trickles round. Is this normal for the healing process? Seen alot of different forums and seems to be that it can take alot of healing.
Also braved a look down there tonight and it looked quite a red/pinky scar and is a tad raised. Is it meant to look like that? First time I've looked since it first happened so nothing to compare it with! If I had an infection would I surely know about it?
Any info I'd appreciate! Thanks xx
