Hi I’m having some concerns I had a baby a year ago and I had third degree lacerations. I have been trying to have sexual intercourse and it hurts to bad to do so. It’s a lot of pressure and I can feel exactly where she came out at. I’m trying to figure out is it like this


Is there anything else I could do besides another surgery?

Ok thank you

Thanks for trusting us with your health concern.
I think the repair for the third degree lacerations was done too tightly.
Please ask your gynecologist to examine you and go for appropriate corrective or loosening surgery.
Looking forward to hearing from you.
Take care
