nwr: Skipping medical procedure(embarrasing)

As some of you ladies know. I had a baby 3 weeks ago, everything went fine. The baby is healthy etc. But there is a little problem with me that is not making me happy at all. The day of the delivery(vaginal) I had an episiotomy. Some of the stiches were in the labial(not very common tear). The midwife, not my regular gyn who stiched me up, did not perform a great job on me. I went back to my gyn, and she saw me. Even with the stiches my labia still look torn(it looks weird now :( she say it can be fix, but I would have to be cut again and restich. I dont know what to do, I dont know if I want to do the procedure that was not done right on the first place. My and my husband still havent decided if we want more kids in the future. I feel embarass with my "New" weird looking vagina :( Should I proceed with the procedure or wait for the future if we have more kids. Dont want to go under the knife again

Congratulations on your new baby! I'm sorry things didn't go smoothly.


First, while there's absolutely nothing wrong with posting this on the main forums, you may get better responses from the ladies in some of our baby related groups because they've been there recently. 


That said, I think it really depends on whether it's just a cosmetic issue or whether there's more involved. If it's strictly the way things look, you may decide it's not worth it to go under the knife again. If it affects function, makes sex painful, would make future childbirth more difficult, etc., it may be more important to have it done. I would talk to my doctor and my husband about it (in addition to getting advice from other moms who have been there).
