I wanted to ask the women if they are cut as well? Were you cut with or without your permission All of the women I have spoken too say that they are the same or feel more tight after they heal after giving birth if the vaginal is left intact during childbirth. Most countries have stopped doing these surgeries except the US even though The leading medical journals are all opposed to epesiotomies unless the baby is in danger. It has been proven to be only harmful to the mothers . No one seems to say anything about women , being cut during childbirth. I have been told that the doctor may ask the husband, not the woman ,if she wants to be made tighter or the same as before. Many women no longer enjoy sex after having children in America because of the episiotomy. It can take at least 2 years before sex is pleasurable enough to satify the woman if ever again. I would like to hear from men and women . I should be the vagina crusader.
