It would depend on how your labour went ( tears, stitches,etc) I had a fairly easy going one and had no stitches and don't think I tore, it was just stingy as hell to pee lol and it was sore like that for about 3 weeks x

I kept a skooshy bottle ( like a fruit shoot one for example) in the bathroom, even in the hospital, and when I went to pee I'd fill it with water and skoosh it on my bits while I peed which took away most of the pain lol x

I was sore sore for about 10 days, suppose it will be sore for as long as all the bruising takes to come out hun. I was actually in pain for about 3 weeks but it was managable pain, the worst part was the stitches as they started to dry up and dissolve (my pants would catch on them ouch!).....I found sitting in a nice hot bath helped lots, was having about 3 a day at one stage haha!

Like the girls say, it will also depend on whether you tore or were cut as a tear is worse.

I had a tear after my son and I was sore for about 4-5 weeks, but like Jenna I'd use something to pour warm water as I went to the loo which made it feel much better.

4th degree tear, 80+stitches, and wasn't sore at all for the first ten days. Then I ACHED. For weeks! I think that sometimes the bruising is worse than the nerve damage, depending on the tear/labour. It can take a while to feel all normal there hun so don't worry - just take the pills you need to to be comfortable and rest while you can xxx

I was cut and was only really sore for about a week. Just felt bruised and I didnt want tight trousers on so wore loose joggers.

It must have healed quick as we were back to having sex within 3 weeks Embarassed

Smile I was lucky really hun - nerve damage meant I didn't even know anything was wrong til the 5th consultant came in to peer down there! Very Happy I was just really happy to have baby! Very Happy It was only days later when the bruising around it all kicked in that I was uncomfy - just took paracetamol and sat gently! Smile

Best wishes and congrats on your beautiful new arrival! Smile xxx
