Good evening Nayaka, thanks for the question.
Tear injuries to the vagina after childbirth, are generally divided into several levels depending on the large and what parts are torn during childbirth. Basically, a small tear can heal completely by itself, but if the tear is large enough and affects many surrounding areas, by not doing suturing, aesthetically and functionally, the results of healing the wound is not good. The stitching of the torn wound expects that the wound will not be wider and can maintain its shape and function almost similar to before the tear occurred, and also prevent complications.
In your situation, where the stitches are taking place, you should check your tear condition in your vagina to the doctor, to assess further whether or not you need stitches again. If you feel the need for further treatment, your doctor may consult you further to an obstetrician.
Until now, there has been no drug or any method that states can accelerate wound healing, including lacerations in the vagina after childbirth. The wound can take up to several weeks to heal completely. Here are some things you can do at home to help keep the wound clean, not too painful, and free of infection so that the healing process is not hampered:
Avoid intercourse at least 6 weeks after suturing or until pain in the tear area is not felt
Do a sitz bath (soaking the pubic area in warm water) several times a day
Change your pads every 2 to 4 hours
After urinating, make sure your pubic area is dry
Eating fibrous food so there is no difficulty CHAPTER because straining can make the wound open again
Take medications that have been prescribed by your doctor to help reduce pain
I hope this helps.
