Gave birth a little over 24 hours ago the ice pack idea is a good one! Idk what to do when I don't have the ice pack though. I try to reposition myself and either that hurts or my stomach hurts...I can't win lol
My friend didn't have an episiotomy but she did tear and swell really bad so she is putting her pads in the freezer for a few hours and using them as ice packs. Maybe try that? I didn't remember what I did for relief with my episiotomy other than not moving. lol good luck and hope you feel better soon.
Congrats also on your babe. :)
the lidocanine numbing spray really helped me.
Thanks ladies :) I actually tore but posting tore and coughing sounded weird lol I've been trying to figure out the best positions to cough in haha this epifoam is a beautiful thing and so is this oragel for lady parts its just coughing that absolutely sucks! I have pads at home soaked in aloe and witch hazel so I can't wait to wear them and be home!

Good! They're in the freezer lol I made room for them :) thinking I'm gonna have to make more though...I also heard condoms filled with water and frozen helps lol
