A 35-year-old male asked about a 37-year-old female:

My youngest son is 6 months old, i had vaginal delivery and after the delivery; i've had an extra skin on my anus, sometimes it hurts but most of the time it doesn't but i've never had hemorrhoids; so i"m not sure if that is what it is.

Could be...: If you find that area to be painful there is a good chance it is a tiny hemorrhoid. Try sitz baths daily with ice/cool packs. If no better see you family doc for an exam. Enjoy your baby!
