So I had my lil one 2 1/2 years ago and my stitches seemed awfully tight and were quiet painful, after a while they, to my knowledge at the time, healed up fine. Then 2 nights ago after sex(in a new position)(sry about the TMI) when I whent to the washroom I was in a rush and flexed to go fasted and felt a sharp pain, So I looked in the mirror and it seems to me that I had ripped where I had stitches close to my libia. Anyways It hurts every time I use the washroom I assume partly because the tear is very close to the surface and the mussel movement.

 

So year just wanted to know if this has ever happened to anyone else? If it should heal on its own within a short time(not very big no bleeding), ect, Advice, info, stories?

I'm sorry that happened! My take would be to let it heal as it "naturally" tore, and if you have more children, might be looser to avoid tearing again. I'd lather it with coconut oil to keep it protected as it heals. Did it bleed very much?
