Things went really well with my UC but i tore. Initially i did not think much of it, there really hasnt been much pain except when peeing which ive always read as "normal" specially if you tear or have any abraisions. Now that my bleeding has significantly slowed i was able to really check things out and i have two tears. The first looks to be a 2nd degree alongside the scarring of my previous episiotomy/tear site from my last birth (4th degree tearing,2.5 yrs ago). The actual scar part is slightly pink and hard and the other is normal colored and soft. It looks pretty bad but there really no pain there now. But what concerns me is that it extends a good inch.
Second is a labial tear. its about an inch long and its roughly 1/3" wide... this burns when peeing so i tend to lean off to the side now to avoid that. Other than that it doesnt bother me. Should this be something i get checked out or can i leave it be? Is it too late to get stitched up? I have read in midwifery today about using seaweed for perineal tearing but nothing about labial tears. Any tips would be great =)
