Hi everyone - I'm new here and looking for some help or advice . . . anything I can get. I gave birth 5 months ago to a beautiful boy. I had a 3 degree tear with an episiotomy and a vacuum assisted birth. I'm experiencing pain in my vaginal area and the best way I can describe it is . . . well, it feels like I've got a golf ball up in there !! My husband and I have yet to have sex because it seems that I've also got scar tissue that I need to manually stretch out. Also, I seem to leak the tiniest bit of stool on a daily basis. None of it ends up in my underwear, but when I urinate I'll also wipe my rear end and there is always a little stool on the toilet paper. My midwife checked me and says it doesn't seem like I have a rectocele, but there is this pressure on my vagina and I'm not sure how else to fix it. I'm constantly aware of it. I feel it when I bend over, when I'm walking, sitting, and exercising seems to be out of the question. Can anyone help or anyone experienced similar issues? I would be sooooo grateful.
