Stinging..from catheter site? TMI

Every since I had my baby - 7 weeks ago - I have been having this weird issue. I had a c-section so my vagina didn't see any trauma :) HOWEVER, when I am in the shower and I wash 'down there' with soap a lot of times I get this awful stinging sensation around my clitoris. Is this where they inserted the catheter? If so shouldn't that be healed up by now?? I used a mirror to really investigate and I don't see anything at all abnormal where I am feeling the stinging. Has anyone else ever had this issue?

  • soap can make your vagina burn anyways, try a milder soap
    they put the catheter in your urethra (sp?) or "pee hole" it's right under your clitoris GL
