Normal Birth Stitches Like They Don’t Blend?
I’ve been in the 1st month giving birth normally. How come my vaginal seam is in the middle with small holes? But it doesn’t hurt when touched. Her breath also came out of the hole. What’s the reason that my stitches don’t fit together? Is it because I have too many activities? Even 2 days after giving birth I have washed my own clothes by standing for a long time and bending down. Raise the bucket yourself too. What’s that because?
During the delivery process, the perineum (the part between the vagina and the anus) is sometimes cut with the aim of facilitating delivery and so that irregular tears do not occur in the perineum. After the delivery is complete, the cut parts are then stitched so that they come back together.
In general, the sutures will dry within 1-2 weeks and heal after a few weeks. But this also depends on the individual patient's condition, nutrition, presence of infection, number of stitches, and severity of the wound. In some cases the stitches can open again and require a longer healing time up to several months.
If you feel there is a problem with the stitches, I suggest that you check with your obstetrician so that the condition of your stitches can be checked. Then the doctor can provide the right treatment. Generally, sutures that are dry and there are no problems will be left and do not need to be re-stitched, unless there is a problem such as a channel between the anus and the vagina, the obstetrician can refer to the surgical department for further management.
