I tore in my kitty and I just use bacteria stray to numb it and cool water as I pee it stops the burning I just had my baby today
I waited til I had to poop so bad I didn't have to push at all lol my first poop was mushy but it still hurt, not bad though. As long as you're on stool softener it's not so bad.
I waited until I had to poop so bad I didn't have to push which was 3 days after delivering when I was at home. It's been 3 weeks and pooping has gotten better but I've been eating dried prunes or drinking prune juice daily to help until I'm completely healed. Best advice, don't push, let it come naturally.
Ugh! I'm so scared to poop too lol! Every time my stomach rumbles I'm skiddish! Haha I'm also convinced that every single movement I make is going to tear my stitches. I swear, this is the worst part of post-labor!
I ended up with a second degree tear.
If you're worried about popping stitches open, apply counter pressure. As messy and horrid as it sounds, it makes it more bearable. Use a wet wipe or dampened cloth. The coolness will help with any stinging. Also, drink lots of water and have some Ural on standby because if you're not hydrated, when you pee, it's going to sting like a *****
Ugh I had a second degree and it is painful! I bought a spray at walk greens its a red bottle and its a cool spray that u spray and its an antibacterial spray it helped and did wonders let me tell u I highly recommend it its only $12!!
