How long after having a vaginal birth is it normal to be in a lot of pain? I do have a very low pain tolerance but the pain seems to be gettin worse not better. I had my baby a week and a few days ago and I really feel like someone went at my vag with a baseball bat. (TMI) sorry. It hurts a lot and my lips down there are incredibly sore. Hurts to even have my legs closed when I lay down :( is this normal or should I call my OB? FTM. thanks!!
