I thought I got off easy with just a small nonstitched tear...could go to the bathroom comfortably and everything when suddenly I've got some sort of infection/irritation going on down there.
It feels like bacterial vaginosis, my midwife thinks it may be yeast. She'll be here tomorrow to look, but meanwhile I'm near miserable. She recommended trying some Monistat and I had some strange and uncomfortable reaction to it last night...ended up taking a bath after using it and then taking a benadryl (and I'm not even sure that's okay with a nursing babe) to try to get the jumping out of my skin feeling it gave me to go away (it worked).
I'm beginning to feel like a "problem patient" and while I need to call my midwife and let her know about my funny reaction, I don't really want to.
