I had a small tear (1st degree) that didn't need stitching, and at my final midwife visit at 7 weeks post-partum she told me that it had healed well and I could start having sex.
So we tried... three times, but it's too sore. It's been 11 weeks now, and I can't stand it! My husband and I have always had a VERY healthy sex-life and, along with him working a lot and me attached to the baby 90% of the day, it is making me feel very distant from him.
It's doesn't seem like it's the tear site that hurts either, it feels like it's bruised inside or something...
Is 11 weeks too long to still be hurting? Should I be seeing a doctor about this yet?
Also, I don't feel any pain otherwise.
