    I had my daughter on Friday and was left with 2 small 2nd degree tears. It stings sooooo much when I pee. What can I do for it. Everytime I need a wee i dread going and will hold for as long as I can, what can I do for relief??? Im struggling to handle it. I'd really appreciate any advice as it's driving me insane.

    Pour a jug of tepid water over you as you pee. It dilutes your wee and should help stop it stinging so much.

    Oddly enough I found if I drank fizzy drinks it made my pee sting more. So I stuck to water and it helped. I guess coz it dilutes it more?

    Sounds weird - but touch your toes whilst you wee so you are folded in half. It works. I pee'd a lot in the shower and bath too if I really couldnt bare it, I had a 3rd degree tear last time so I know your pain it stings like a bitch! xx

    Thanks ladies. Everytime I go, my husband panics because I'm moaning in there. It really is horrible. :(

    It's been nearly 3 years for me and I can still remember how painful it was. I, the same as you, tried not to drink so much to prevent the need to wee but was BF so needed to drink. Catch 22!

    All the best, hope you heal quickly xx

    Take lots of salt baths too it helps the healing process. within about 2 weeks I healed loads after having a salt bath every day xx

    To help heal I was recommended medihoney by a midwife and it has worked a treat. Can either pop on directly or on sanitary towel. I wish I'd known about it sooner, even the pharmacist was praising it! X

    I never had this problem but the MW told me to pee in the shower if I did.
