In the most recent episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians, Kim Kardashian shows the moments before and after giving birth to her daughter with boyfriend Kanye West this past summer. In the show, she says her vagina looked better than ever after giving birth.

Kardashian has remained dedicated to getting her post-baby body back in shape. Earlier this month, the reality television vixen revealed that she’s been dropping the weight through the Atkins diet and exercise. To take it one step further, she says she intends to come back at those who berated her about her pregnancy weight gain by becoming hotter than ever.

"I just want to come out to the world, and be naked and be like, 'I look so hot. I am back,'" she said. "You called me a whale, Shamu, a cow..."

In that same episode, which was taped a few months ago, Kardashian said her post-delivery vagina is new and improved.

"When I came back from the hospital the first thing I did was go and look at my vagina in the mirror. It looks better looking than before," Kardashian told her sister.

But what the reality star didn’t mention was that, although it may have looked better to her, new mothers’ vaginas require a lot of postpartum care — especially after vaginal birth.

According to the Mayo Clinic, most women can expect anything from vagina soreness to urination problems in the days and weeks after delivering their babies. After delivery, women experience vaginal discharge (lochia) for weeks. The discharge starts as a heavy, bright red flow of blood and gradually tapers off, becoming pink or brown, then yellow.

In addition, many women experience swelling and bruising on the tissues in and around the vagina after birth. The Mayo Clinic suggests pouring water over your vulva while sitting on the toilet to alleviate the pain.

So, while Kim Kardashian thinks her vagina looked better when she returned home from giving birth, most women have bloody, swollen, bruised vaginas postpartum. But who knows? She may just be different.
