Everything feels “on”


I’m 6 days postpartum. Had a vaginal delivery with forceps. I have an inner vagina wall tear. Lots of stitches and swelling. Was catheterized the first night after delivery.

My question is, does anyone feel like their vagina/bladder/rectum are all “on”? Like they all feel like they’re stuck on “push”? Maybe I’m bracing myself with my bladder/rectum and squeezing there due to abdominal separation?
