My boyfriend & I tried a new position in bed 4 days ago, I tore something and it still hurts. Is that okay?
Try, OK. Tear, not!: I can't tell what this new position was or what/where the 'tear' was about, but hurting for several days is not great. If it's improving clearly, you might decide to just give it rest. If it's not (or worse!) have an OBGYN exam to be safe. Experimenting can be great, but pay attention to your body and take care to learn from it. Best! ...Read more

With my last baby I had a midline episiotomy, but still tore badly. What are the chances of a tear again?
Possible: If you had a previous episiotomy or previous tear it is certainly possible to have a laceration happen again but not a guarantee that it will. I find many patients on their second and third deliveries will have no tears at all. I do not cut routine episiotomies either. ...Read more

I partially tore my ligament three months ago and it has not fully recovered since then. What am i supposed to do? Will this be chronic?
Possibly...: Depends a lot on which ligament you injured and the shape of the muscles around that joint. Ligaments don't typically repair themselves. So after such an injury, the goal of physical therapy is to develop the muscles around the joint in question, taking over some support function of the ligament. If that doesn't work, sometimes surgery is indicated. So, if you're not doing so, see a pt next. ...Read more
