I tore horribly and had to have 18 stitches and my son is 2 years old and YES it STILL hurts to have sex. Sometimes I actually tear a little bit and it causes me to bleed a little bit. not to much but just a little bit of spotting. Good Luck.

I had a 3rd degree tear and my little one is now 10 months old. The tear has healed but I am not 100% and yes sex has been painful. So I've used oil in that area (baby oil is the best) after my shower just to keep everything moisturized and happy which has helped alot but it takes a little while. As for sex try different positions to see which is less painful for you, I doubt your partner will complain ;) Anyway, it takes some time. Unfortunately with having a baby not everything comes back to the way it was. Hang in there :)

they did a 2nd degree cut that they stitched ,3 days after it got infected and my body regected the stitches and pushed them out. so i was left with an open wound down there. it healed up with antibiotics but they wouldnt stitch it back up.
im healed. it looks as well as i could imagen an open wound to look.
it might still be a bit sore because they stitched you up tighter then you was in the 1st place. id massage the area with oil to try n strech the skin a little.

its a good idea to go see your obgyn. i didnt tear but was cut to get my son out. i didnt have any trouble afterwards. we all heal at different rates but its best to be on safe side. they will be able to suggest different things u can try.
