Anyone else have perineal pain for this long 5 weeks pp, with no tear or epi?  It burns when I urinate and is sooo tender, I have to be careful when sitting or lying down.

Yes. I had two tiny tears that didn't require stitches. I used the peri bottle and herb concoction for about 6 weeks. I had burning and trouble sitting certain ways for almost 8 weeks. My midwife said that she expects small tears without stitches to take about 90 days to heal fully, so I just chalked it up to that.

thank you!  i had a home birth also and was in such a state of ...?  after the birth that I told my midwife I didn't need to be checked for tears, I was so sure I hadn't any.  I didn't, but perhaps a tiny one like yours that may not be apparent to my layman's eye.  Keep meaning to have her check it but getting out of the house with my LO is still quite an ordeal.  She works in a low income clinic and has three LOs of her own, so is quite busy and I don't want to ask a home visit from her if not necessary.  I'm glad to hear your comment(NOT glad you had pain) so that I know I'm not the only one!
