I’m 9 months PP and still have zero feeling in my vagina. I can feel pressure but nothing else, no tingles, pleasure, anything.
Birth was quick, I think she was out in an hour. No forceps, just pushing.
Anyone else in my boat? It’s a lonely place to be as no one seems to have this huge lack of feeling.

For me it wasn’t numb, but it hurt for a LONG time – like a year. It did slowly get better and now my son is almost 2 and things are back to normal. Have to talked to your OB/GYN?

Just GP, don’t have an Ob as I’m in UK. I’ve been told it can take up to a year to get back to normal but I thought I would have felt slight improvement by now. I’d rather be in pain with it because at least I know everything is working. I can’t believe that I’m that unique with this problem yet I’ve not met anyone with the same issue.

MeandYou: I am 12 weeks PP and haven’t sex with my husband yet, we are working up to it and I am quite anxious. i had a difficult 2 day labour, ended up baby’s shoulder was caught and ended up getting an episiostomy which was through 3 layers down to muscle. I felt numb after the birth for maybe 3 days max then it became really tender and extremely painful.i am only now feeling better.
i have heard you can take up to a year to feel “normal” again but I think 9 months with numbness is a very long time to not have any improvement. I’m in the UK also and if I were you I would go back to your GP who should be able to help and advise you and hopefully refer you to a gyno.
hope you get some answers.
