I gave birth just over 2 years ago and despite my wish for an elective cesarean, this did not happen. I went into pre-term labor and delivered at 32 weeks. It was a vaginal delivery because the labor was so fast and by the time I got to the hospital, the gynecologist told me that my baby was too far down.
Although it was pre-term, my daighter was remarkably big and even my gynecologist was surprised. He had to do an episiotomy. I recovered very well and did not have any pain after about 2 months. I thought everything was ok but about 3 weeks ago, I started yoga again which I had not done for years.
I noticed quite intense pain in certain positions, especially when I curl up and bring my thighs to my chest. Its like between my tail bone and the pubic area. I cannot really pinpoint it. I am wondering if this is related to the episiotomy and if there has been any permanent damage. Will the pain ever go down so that I could return to yoga classes? Could there be any permanent damage?
