2nd degree tear Lock Rss

I had a 2nd degree tear from giving birth to my son, 6months ago. There was problems with healing, missing stitches. Now I have a scar inside that is giving me pains. I am having problems with trying to have intercourse and going for a number 2. When I'm sitting down I can feel a sharp pain , and sometimes it feels like on opening up on one side. Is this due that I have been sewing unevenlly. I have been searching the net for information on things like this but I cant seem to find any. I would like to know is this really normally to have problems like this after having 2 kids, or is it due to the fact that I wasn't looked after proplery.

Thank you for enquiry. I am sorry to hear that you are experiencing some problems. This can happen sometimes especially following a forceps delivery or a bad tear but it is not too common. It can sometimes take up to a year to heal properly. Some women say that it is not until they have the second that it gets better! You really need to see either your GP or a specialist to thoroughly check the area to see if it needs any extra treatment. It is not worth suffering the discomfort and worry; you need to have it checked. If you are not comfortable seeing one doctor in particular, you can go to another.

Best wishes,
