Hey ladies, I'm looking for some encouragement for those with a similar experience. I had our 10lb 1oz son on Sunday night. I delivered vaginally and suffered 4th degree tearing. I've had a bowel movement everyday, which hasn't been awesome but it is was it is. Here is where I have questions/concerns.
1. How were you ale to keep the area clean when wiping is out. I use a peri bottle, sitz bath and shower after a bowel movement, but I just don't feel clean enough as sometimes I find some "leftover" when I go to the bathroom e next time. I am desperate to avoid infection!
2. How long did it take you to heal? It is so uncomfortable to sit on anything but a boppy lounger, going to the bathroom is brutal and I'm walking like I have saddle sores! And heaven forbid I cough or sneeze!
Thanks for the help!
