  • Are you saying it's a perineal area pain or a butt pain?

  • You should get a mirror and have a look down there. Check and see if you're healing ok. You may need to be restitched. Another possibility is it's a hemroid, which can be quite common after labor. Also, is the pain in your rectum, perineum, or your tale bone?
