Vaginal soreness after birth:

If you had an episiotomy or vaginal tear during delivery, the wound might hurt for a few weeks. Extensive tears might take longer to heal.

To ease discomfort while you're recovering:

  • Sit on a pillow or padded ring.
  • Cool the wound with an ice pack, or place a chilled witch hazel pad between a sanitary napkin and the wound.
  • Use a squeeze bottle to pour warm water on your perineum as you're passing urine.
  • Sit in a warm bath just deep enough to cover your buttocks and hips for five minutes. Use cold water if you find it more soothing.
  • Take an over-the-counter pain reliever. Ask your health care provider about a numbing spray or cream, if needed.
  • Talk to your health care provider about using a stool softener or laxative to prevent constipation.
