Not the answer I was hoping for. I wanted to hear, "no, this will never happen again:. I had a vaginal tear that turned into a hematoma the size of a grapefruit. I had to go home with a cathader in because it blocked me up from the swelling. After the OB took out the dried blood a week later, I was back to normal and had sex at 6 weeks pp. Ouch does not even cut it.... But, after a couple times I was fine. 5 years later I still feel a stinging, pulling sensation every now and then. But, I am so scared to get pregnant this fall because of that. I really want a home birth but what if this happens again?? That pain was worse than contractions for me. I'm glad you are doing good now.
