I'm not part of this DDC but wanted to share my experience.

I found that if I was on my feet too much, I would also have perineal pain. I ended up also unknowingly retaining a piece of placenta that didn't pass for a few weeks after the birth. After that passed, the perineal pain improved greatly.

I did find that I needed to try to take it easy though (which is difficult when you're a bust mom!) I had mild perineal issues for about 6 months after birth. My OB explained that because I was breastfeeding and there was a lack of estrogen in my body, that it can sometimes take longer for that area to heal.

Good luck and I hope your pain improves soon.
