What is a third-degree laceration episiotomy?

The tissue and muscles surrounding your vagina thin and stretch after your labor to enable your child to be delivered. Perineal or uterine tearing is highly prevalent among women. 3rd and 4th-degree rips are a rare consequence of delivery that can compromise bowel, urinary, and sexual performance for various reasons.
A third-degree rip occurs when the perineal muscles and the muscular layer covering the anal canal are torn or lacerated. These tears necessitate surgical correction, and this can take up to three months for the incision to mend and the region to be comfy.
