|They tried to make me use the numbing spray for my vagina,|
I live on ibuprofen (motrin/advil/store brand) 600-800 every 5 hours for a few days, then don't seem to need much of anything. It's beneficial not only for the pain relief, but also because it's a prostaglandin inhibitor, so it helps your cervix to 'spring back' as it were.
I am so glad I asked, otherwise I probably would have kicked myself for assuming their wouldn't be any afterpains if I never received any pitocin.
Here's another question for all you helpful Mamas...
If I'm trying to avoid post partum depression by having an unmedicated birth, would it be wise to skip the ibuprofen, too?
