I had a episiotomy when I had my son last year. My midwife did it against her better judgement as I had been in med-free, induced active labor for about 6 hrs and then pushed for 3 hrs...and my son wa sjust NOT popping out, and the doctors who were on duty that night threatened a c-section as my sons heart rate was dropping.
ANYWAY, she didnt do a normal epi, she cut on the sides, stitched me up and I healed very easily and quicly-dare I say, pretty painlessly.
But, fast forward almost a year and suddenly the areas which were cut hurt-and sting...I dont understand why?
Can someone tell me wether this is normal or what?
I cant see a ob-gyn until the semester goes back in early january.
