It healed open, meaning my perineum is a 'V' now and the bottom of the 'V' basically touches the top of the hemmorhoid I got pushing out Baby #1 (with whom I tore).
I have this happening NOW, ds3 born 1/23 and I've been searching for answers. I'm glad I did a search and just kept reading through the many threads.
We need a book written on the woes of child birth both vaginal and c/c. We just are not told the truth about birthing trauma.
I researching having this "V" repaired b/c I truly do not like it at all and feel it is responsible for my multiple UTIs in the short 4wks PP that I am.
