Hello Rossa, thanks for asking.


In labor there are often wounds. Normal spontaneous labor usually involves tears in the skin of the perineum (the skin between the vagina and the anus). While cesarean delivery involves a wider and deeper surgical wound. You didn't mention what type of delivery you were in, so we don't really understand what you mean stitching. If you mean stitches in the perineum, then sometimes it can occur longer stitches dry. Generally, the stitches will heal within 1-2 weeks.


Perineal area is an area that is prone to wet and damp. Therefore, it is natural that stitches are harder to heal. As long as you don't feel pain, swelling, redness, and there is no pus or blood coming out, there is a high chance that there will be no infection, so you don't need to worry. Make sure after every BAK and BAB, the stitching area is always completely dry. Change your pads and underwear often to avoid damp. Choose the type of underwear from materials that absorb sweat, to keep it dry.


If after a week there has been no change in the stitches, then you should consult your doctor again. Expand the consumption of protein to accelerate wound healing.


So little information that I can give, hopefully useful. Regards.
