I was pregnant with my daughter during June, July, August AND September. It will suck, but it will be well worth it. :)

I only got a few stitches as well nad they just let me tear. Lean ALL the way forward to pee! Thats the only way I could pee for the last 2 weeks, now I can finally pee normal. Make sure to use the peri bottle to rinse even if it stings because you dont want to get an infection. Keep it CLEAN! Oh and squirting witch hazel astrigent on a pad and sticking it in the freezer for a bit will help with itchiness and soreness. I still have a bit of pressure down there but its getting better everyday. So the end of pain is almost near for you I hope!!

No need. Yeah it sucks but it comes to an end.



Burned like a b***h for 2 months but I had around 60 stitches.

I had a VBAC and let me tell you, while the vagina hurting sucks, I would prefer this recovery 10x more than my csection recovery. The pains are completely different!

I tried bending forward to pee and it doesnt help. :(
i think my pee is gonna hit the stiches no matter how i pee, sucks
& honestly, its not that bad, id rather walk around sore between my legs, then barely being able to move from surgery at my waistline.
i feel alright, except for when i pee, UGH. i just wanna know when the burning sensation will go away, i dont mind the actually fully healing process lol
i can deal with the dull achy feeling.

Do you have a spray bottle? Spray while you pee- it dilutes it so even if it does touch its not so intense.



Unless water hurts it.



Good luck!
