I am 2 weeks 3 days pp. I had a vbac and ended up getting a level 2 tear. For the past week I have been really sore and sometimes it hurts to sit down. I also think I can feel them when I'm walking. Should I be able to feel them and should I still be hurting and bleeding from them?

I had stitches with my first son but I don't remember being so sore.

I had one and I could feel them, too, unfortunately, I think it's pretty normal as unpleasant as it is - hopefully you heal quickly, good luck!

I just hope it's better by my 6 week check up cuz I had planned on getting the iud but if I'm still sore there is no way anything is going near me down there.

They should dissolve by then.
