  • I was a little sore. That's about it. Sex wise, my SO has NO complaints there. He says it's tighter.

  • I've had four and after each its been different. This last one I didn't have any pain meds or an epidural(which sucked IMO). Afterwards my wooha kinda burned but not for long. It was a lot easier to pee afterwards too. With my first the DR cut me so I had stitches which sucked. They give you this bottle I just put warm water in it and used that when I'd go to the bathroom.

  • i was pretty sore for about a week. just felt sore and my perineum was swollen. after a week things got loads better. it wasn't like a soreness that i was constantly thinking about but still sore. :)

  • yeah it hurts.. big time for about a week.. it hurts to sit.. i remember laying down alot.. it you have stitches anyway.. plus you cant wipe.. and when you pee it burns. and you have to use a squirt bottle.. then it starts to itch as it heals.. lol sounds terrible doesnt it?
    but for me it was only a week.. then it is pretty much back to normal.. i rememeber making dh look and make sure it didnt look crazy.. but he said it was back to normal!
