Vaginal Scarring


I ended up with a complex 2nd degree tear in the vagina. It was obviously repaired right after delivery, but now I have significant scar tissue along the perineum (I’m just over 5 weeks pp). I can actually feel it when I walk, it’s so prominent. Does anyone have any experience with something like this? Will it eventually shrink? Any advice on how to help it along?

If it’s that prominent on the outside, I’m afraid of what’s going on on the inside... I haven’t had any internal exams yet, so I don’t know.
