I'm not sure where to post this so I guess here will do! I had my son a year ago and I had an episiotomy and suction during the birth. The scar healed fine but occasionally it aches, not necessarily after sex or exercise but just at random times. I'm now 9 weeks pregnant and the last few days I've been very aware of it, and today it's been pretty uncomfortable. It feels like a pinching and throbbing combined. I'm assuming this is because of increased blood flow to the area, and I will mention it to the midwife and my GP when I next see them because I'd like to get some lidocaine to help with the uncomfortableness of it, but has anyone else experienced anything similar? Is this something that is going to hurt occasionally for the rest of my life now?
