Granulation scar tissue after birth

Granulation tissue

Let’s face it: childbirth isn’t easy. We women and our bodies are extremely powerful and durable, which is why the wounds we bear as a result of childbirth should be viewed as a badge of honor. We’ve given life, and with it come some physical changes, but don’t worry; you can aid your recovery.
Perineal lacerations and birth canal tears are common complications of childbirth. It may happen spontaneously or be caused by a doctor using an episiotomy technique. The doctor will use dissolvable stitches to patch vaginal tears, and certain patients may experience little to no pain during the healing process. Others, on the other hand, may experience pain before their first postpartum checkup or even later. Scar tissue adhesions, or places where multiple tissues heal fused together, cause this inflammation, and may cause pain in everyday activities, trouble urinating and/or bowel movements, and painful intercourse.
Massage the scar on a regular basis after the incision has healed, normally 4-6 weeks after delivery, to reduce the likelihood of pain. You’ll note less redness, sweat, and swelling in the area during this time. Clean your hands before performing the scar tissue massage, keep your fingernails small, and have a hypoallergenic, water-based lubricant on hand. Begin on the outside of the tear and work your way inwards to the torn area and even internally.

So, this may be a little personal, but I gave birth to my son via vaginal delivery five months ago. I have had a second-degree tear that was stitched and felt better for about a month. After that, I experienced sharp pain when touched or a dull ache after using the toilet, and don’t even get me started on intercourse! It was painful, and it is still painful. Since babe’s birth, we’ve only done it once.
It’s basically a large red fleshy lump right above my stitches. My doctor has scheduled a mini operation for me to freeze and remove it locally, but she also needs to submit it to pathology to make sure it’s not harmful!!! I’m freaking out right now…has anybody else had this happen to them?
That sounds dreadful for you. I don’t have a lump, but the place where my stitches were is still red, and my intercourse hurts! It’s just a delicate/sensitive situation. In that sense, I understand your anguish. Isn’t that a glob of scar tissue?

Perineal tearing and episiotomy (a doctor-made incision in the perineum) are common complications during vaginal delivery. According to studies, up to 85% of women will experience some form of perineal trauma during vaginal delivery (1-3). Where tissues have torn, the body’s normal reaction is to form a wound. Scar tissue may weaken, restrict, or hurt, resulting in urinary and/or fecal incontinence, painful or urgent bowel movements, or painful sex. Thankfully, pelvic floor recovery is a viable option for recovering from perineal tearing and resuming intimacy and exercise while maintaining bladder and bowel function.
The extent of tissue damage is used by the medical system to grade the severity of your tear. Definitions of involuntary perineal tears can be found in the table below (3). Please note that while an episiotomy is a 2nd degree tear by definition, additional tearing can occur during delivery. Inquire with your doctor about the severity of the tear.

Granulation tissue treatment

We identify a group of women who have recurrent vaginal discharge and pain, as well as dyspareunia and postcoital bleeding. They presented with episiotomy 2-4 months after delivery. The symptoms were linked to localized granulation tissue polyps on the episiotomy site in these patients. The symptoms were relieved quickly and effectively by simple ablation. The lack of published reports suggests that these lesions are more prevalent in clinical practice than the lack of published reports suggests. They should be suspected in women who have been experiencing symptoms for several months after giving birth.
