    Will my vagina ever be the same?!
    heat4heather posted:
    I finally got the courage to use a mirror and have a look down there... will it ever look the same??

    I am sure it will "work" just fine, but it was strange to see it look different after all these years of looking a certain way.

    Weird question, I know, but thanks for replying :)

    It most likely will never look quite the same, especially if you had to have any stitches. I was worried that they had screwed something up the first time I was brave enough to look because everything looked so different. As long as everything is "working" fine, I wouldn't worry about it. It's just another fun part of having children.
