Post subject: So many questions,where to start!
Well as the title says,I have a lot of questions! Rolling Eyes

I could really do with some advice.

Firstly,I've noticed that down below(tmi sorry),I seem to have what looks like a tear,which I was told I didnt have any when I had Alfie but it looks and feels like something has torn a little bit and I am still finding it really sore,as it doesnt seems to have healed back where it should have,I think it probably needed stitching and now I'm worried it won't ever heal right.

I am also absolutely terrified of having sex now because of the tear(or what I think is a tear) but my Oh and I can't seem to keep our hands off each other at the mo lol(nearly a year without it,can't really blame us!Lol) and otherwise,I feel fine to do it soon,I'm just worried it is going to hurt and I don't know if I should mention it to my doctor or just wait and see if it heals.

ok second question,how soon did everyone get their period after giving birth?cos I have just about finished my post-birth bleed I think,although it keeps stopping and starting,so annoying!

thanks ladies xx

Hi Squibby, i would mention your tear to your doctor at your 6 week check up, and personally wouldnt have sex before its been checked just to be sure.

I had a period about 8 weeks after giving birth to my daughter and i think i was the same with my son.

definitely mention the tear when you go for your 6week check and avoid being intimate until given the all clear by the doctor if you can(definitely know how hard it is for you, we only stopped sex in the last few days before birth and i was all over him within 2weeks! lol)


as for period...really depends on whether you are breastfeeding or not. if you are it might be months and months. i'm not breastfeeding and didn't get mine until 11 1/2 weeks! could be anytime before though
