I had a baby 3 months ago, and lately it's felt like I had a stitch that didn't dissolve. I saw a doctor today, and he said that I had scar tissue that was pulled tight, causing the pain, and it could take 2 years to heal, and there was nothing that could be done. The only real inconvenience is that it makes sex hurt, but 2 years of that is not an option! Has anyone else had this?

Also, what are the chances of it tearing during the birth of the next one? The dr. said it would, and could even tear to a worse degree, but I generally take doctors' dramatic comments with a grain of salt (plus, he seems really weirded out when I told him that I had a midwife and didn't want to go to a hospital for the birth, and thought I should have a c-section if I have another really long labor).

I actually think that having sex may help because if you do it often enough it makes sense that it would start helping the scar tissue break up a bit, yk?
As far as a next birth goes....it'll pretty much be a crapshoot - just can't predict that sort of thing.

Still a sleepy mama to my fabulous 2 year old girl
