im 2 weeks PP and had an episiotomy done, cut to my bum and im not that sensitive anymore. just don't sit directly on your vagina and it will heal quicker. or use frozen pads.

it all depends on the person hun...some of us get up and run marathons after labor some of us need to die under our covers at home for a month :P but if the pain becomes worse a new bad smell comes on a clot bigger than your thumb etc. ask to do your follow up sooner just to make sure you dont have an infection or something but thanks to bloodflow comeing out surprisingly its hard to get an infection just because of that sit on pillows alot use the lil water bottle things the hospital gives you when you pee and such alot of girls soak maxi pads then freeze them and wear depends diapers etc. do what you need to do hun to feel better
