  • I had one too and I tore it was so bad. I had to get several stitches. You should take it out.

  • I don't think it would make you tear easier, but I would definitely take it out before you give birth! There is so much stretching down there during delivery and swelling afterward that you don't need anything else down there. Unless your doctor tells you to take it out before delivery, I don't think leaving it in until you deliver would be a problem unless it gets painful or something.
