  • The perineum... the space between the vagina and anus... is maybe an inch, if that. I can't say I've ever measured. Or you could also be constipated and/or pushing too hard.

  • Were you straining? Sounds like you could be constipated.

  • Try adding more fiber to your diet. If after a couple days or so its not working, ask your doctor for a safe medication to help you go easier, but try not to rely on it!

  • Your vagina could have been falling out
