1 Bump

Had my baby on Feb. 4th and.....

my vagina still feels sort of "raw" for lack of better word.

Especially when I wash...it sort of burns.

I would have expected to not feel quite so poorly down there still.... :(

Do you think this is normal...or something I should worry about.

I will have my check up in a couple more weeks.

  • Feb 4th is still a very short time to expect to heal. It can take quite a few weeks for things to get comfortable. Then even longer for things to be normal. I wouldn't worry.

  • Did you tear? I know after I had my first one it was still painful after 4 months. I had 3rd degree tears.

  • Are you moving to fast? Moving around to much that will make you feel like your stuff is about to fall out.

  • Besides tears, there is bruising. I would call your Drs. office and see what the nurse says.
