issues with tearing

I feel pretty strange deciding to ask these questions on the health forum, but i'm in between primary physicians and despite trying every way of looking this up on the internet, i just did not find any relevant answers.

I have had two children, natural births... one in 2005, one in 2006. i was given an episiotomy (sp?) both times, which i know is pretty standard these days, but i really did need it as i'm a petite woman and i ended up suffering additional tearing even despite the fact.

my issue and question pertains to this... my husband of the past 3 years was a lot larger than anyone i had previous intimate relationships and i truly have come to believe that my episiotomy scar has slowly torn back open. is this possible? is it common or uncommon? i also suffer frequent hairline thin tears aswell... i'm planning on just making a direct appointment with an ob/gyn for this matter, but i think i'm more curious as to what i should expect when i do...
