There's a lot of debate about whether or not perennial massage actually works. I think it's more about the position you birth in and how fast baby comes that will determine whether or not you tear. It's honestly just sometimes a part of birth and there are some remedies that you can use to deal with any discomfort.
Truthteller-guidelines have actually changed in the last few years and most OBs now realize that episiotomies are not better than having a woman tear on her own. Healing time is quicker, rate of infection is lower and OBs at one time were overzealous with cutting women who wouldn't have torn. I'm glad that yours healed quickly but also sad that you live in a world where having your vagina "sewn up tighter" is funny.
