I tore up and down. My tear that I had near my clitoris my doctor didn't stitch though because she said I would have too much trouble peeing.
i tore interal, external, up and down, but she tried to give me an episiotomy but my daughter came out too fast.2nd degree tearing. and yes, i'm tighter, i haven't been intimate yet because of it. i can't even get a tampon in without lube
very mild tearing with the first and due to no intercourse for about 6 weeks things naturally tightened up on their own. Had absolutely no tearing with the second but tightened up for the same reason. Having sex of course loosened things up but I was tighter afterwards.
For some women,there may be an "illusion" of being tighter when having intercourse after baby as the vagina is not self-lubricating as well until your regular AF returns. So it may just feel tighter when in fact there's just more friction from lack of lubrication.
I tore pretty bad with Kailey, but I was on my back pushing which is the worst position.
I had a small tear with Nola, I was sitting on a birthing stool when I pushed her out. My MW wanted to give me stitches and when I asked her how many she said "1". Sorry, but there will be NO NEEDLES near my vajayjay just for 1 stitch I told her to leave it alone and it'll heal on it's own.
As for tightness, I've never noticed a difference ever.
I had second degree tearing all the way back. I was REALLY sore afterwards-and did not expect that. It was terrible for me, and I had to get Percocet to manage it. I do feel tighter though, to the point that it stings when we first start and he has to go slow, even with lube. He says I am definitely tighter!
I tore with my first. The doctor stitched me up WAY too far though (of course tighter) which made me tear with my second. I healed naturally though without stitches and the 3rd and 4th I didn't tear a bit.
