Nope, but the doctor stitched me up way to tight after mine.
I now can't have sexual pleasures without it being so painful.

Pretty much same thing for me, although I'm not positive my doctor during first pregnancy didn't screw up stitching or that it healed properly because I still have issues 3 years later.

How many weeks pp are you?
Can you see your doctor or midwife?
I waited 4 weeks to see mine about the pain & need cream to help loosen up the area lol.
I also have an infection, if your having issues please see a doctor even if it's embarrassing..
I'm sure your not going to be loose lol, I was scared about that too but turns out I'm too tight haha!

Did you see a doctor?
The doctor I seen, said the doctor probably accidentally stitched me up abit to tight.
My poor boyfriend! I had no sex drive during pregnancy and now I can't because it's so painful.

Yea i am 9 months pp :( stitches fell out and I can see the inside of my vagina. I think I am missing 1/2 inch of stitching. I feel horrible about my vagina. The inside is tighter but the skin surrounding the opening is wide. My doctor said he would repair it by recutting. He did not deliver.

Idk if my muscle needs repaired too. I am so upset that the doctor did not stitch me good. I don't feel like I ever want to have sex again. I have had sex twice in 9 months and the opening felt so wide and he said so too but the inside was tighter. I have had a bacteria infection since I gave birth. I have to wear a panty liner and tampon bc I leak bc the opening :( I feel shitty

Aww, well that sucks!
Would he just give you a local and then cut then stitch like they do when you deliver? It's all worth it in the end though, your daughter is beautiful.

Yea I guess but Idk if the muscle needs stitched too. It looks like it. Looks like I tore all the way to my c**t. Ugh I hate this. But yes she is worth all my post pregnancy issues in which I have every single except a leaky bladder thank God. Thanks I love my sweet girl.

Yea I like I guess there is not enough skin around the opening so I leak blood when on my period. I have ruined lots of underwear. I just know nobody I know is going through this. They are all like no I am back to the way I was before. Thanks :) I just did not know my whole body would change ya know. Stretch marks galore, hemorrhoids, fat tummy, hair failing out, vagina issues, saggy b**bs, ugh. The joys of motherhood lol

Like an idiot, I went back to the same doctor who did it, so of course everything "looked just fine".

I think that was my problem, I went back to same doctor that delivered who did the cut and stitches.

That sucks and sounds so similar to what I dealt with the first 15 months! After delivering I bled for like 3-4 months (or so I thought, but looking back it sounds more like what you described) and I mentioned it to doctor, he said everything was fine; I should have gone to another doctor like I thought I should have, but I was too embarrassed :(
