How To Close The Vagina After Giving Birth?
I already have 2 children … but when I gave birth to the first child it appeared that the stitches were loose and now it’s been 6 years since giving birth to the first child from the vagina and anus. But now I feel uneasy because the vagina and anus are not distant,
The area between the vagina and the anus is called the perineum. When delivery is sometimes performed episiotomy or perineal clipping to widen the birth canal thereby reducing the risk of perineal tears. However, not all maternal episiotomy is done yes.
If the mother has an episiotomy or if there is a perineal tear, the doctor will suture the perineum. But if there is no tear and no episiotomy, then sewing is not necessary. If the suturing is done then the stitches are removed, the doctor will first ascertain the condition of the suture wound and then take further action, either observation only until the wound heals or needs to be sutured again.
The length of the perineum itself can vary by woman but is usually around 3-5 cm. As long as there is no problem in defecating and does not interfere with intimate relationships, actually there is no need to worry.
But if you feel uncomfortable and anxious about the condition of the perineum, I suggest that you see a doctor directly so that further tests can be done to ensure the condition of your perineum. For the time being, you can just maintain the cleanliness of the vaginal area and its surroundings and do Kegel exercises to strengthen and tighten the pelvic muscles down.
Hope it helps you,
