Hi, i am over 4 months postpartum (natural birth of 9.4 lbs girl with second degree tear which was not stitched) and still lightly bleeding and discomfort. I had a gynaecologist review 2 weeks ago who told me I had granulated tissue which she treated with silver nitrate. This was very painful though the bleeding stopped and I only had some light discharge. After 10 days I have started bleeding again. I know there are many people worse of though it is really getting me down. I haven't had intercourse with my partner for many months now and I am a very keen horse rider though haven't ridden for 8 months now. Don't know what to to do. My next gynaecologist appointment is not till another 2 - 4 weeks. Do I continue to take it easy or do I continue being active and do what I normally would do? I just wish I could finally get rid of those pads and get on with life :-(.
