Success after IF

Pericare question

How long did you guys use your pericare bottle postpartum? Until your 6week appointment? I still have some stinging on occasion so I am still using it 3 weeks out but I wondered if I am supposed to use it until my 6 week visit? Thanks!

Re: Pericare question

  • I don't remember exactly. But I think until I stopped bleeding, which was close to week 6 pp. I think I weaned off of it gradually as I started going out more places and didn't have it with me. Not to say I didn't carry it around with me for a while. <br

  • I can't remember exactly. I believe I used it a few days after I felt comfortable wiping normally. Maybe 3-4w? I had some tearing requiring stitches, maybe 1st degree? I didn't ask and the midwife said it was minor.

  • I don't think there is a time frame when you have to use it. Just use it when/for as long as you feel like it helps. If you don't feel like you want it/need it then don't use it. That little bottle is pretty amazing though, isn't it?

  • I think I used my little squirt bottle for a few weeks after both kids - longer with my son as I got a 4th degree tear after pushing his big head out.  I loved that bottle.  I've kept both of mine actually so I had one for the master bedroom

    Thanks ladies. I hadn't thought about needing it out of the house at my exams tomorrow so thanks for bringing that up. I had a second degree tear and labial tears both sides. I still have some visible stitches and am not yet comfortable wiping so I guess
  • I used mine for just a few days after.  I hated the feeling of not getting dry after using it.  I would just pat dry.
