    Anyone have grazes from Labour? Mine feels so sore....much sorer than the tear that got stitches.
    I am 7 days post partum....please tell me the stinging goes away!!

    It sounds disgusting, but mine were so painful I had to wee in a bath filled with a bit of warm water. It really helped! You can also soak in a bit of VERY diluted salt water to help with the healing process. I think mine took around 2 weeks to start feeling better and 3 to fully heal. Sudocrem was a saving grace too xx

    oh no! I had a big tear with my first and grazes with my second and it felt like fire when peeing!
    I definitely reccomend the peeing in the bath thing, or even in the shower if you put the shower head near (not on) your lady-bits so it washes it away quickly. If at all possible try getting some Boudreaux's butt paste - it's amazing stuff! I doused myself in this
