Postpartum Sutures Torn Outside?
Hello, my name is Lusi, I am 26 years old 3 months ago, I gave birth to my first child, weighing 4.2 kg normally, and ripped at my miss V, degrees, before 40 days, I checked again with the doctor and the doctor used an ultrasound. my uterus is good but my outer stitching is torn and I need to sew it again, but waiting for me after 40 days I was asked to come back to the clinic but I didn’t come back and now it’s been 3 months I ventured to see the stitches I was torn It turned out that it was quite wide and even the distance was very close to my Miss V, I was confused, what should I do, do I have to sew it back or even just, If it would let me be afraid of infection or festering … But for sewing again I haven’t even been able to imagine the pain!
Hello Ms. Lusi! Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. Congratulations on the birth of her baby.
When giving birth, especially large babies, the edges of the vagina can indeed experience tearing. After the birth process, usually the wound is torn at the edge of the vagina will be immediately sewn. If it has been 3 months, the torn wound has usually healed and the open state will persist. The risk of infection during this time is usually low. However, what I need to worry about is the quality of your life. If left unchecked, the sexual relationship between mother and partner will not be the same as before. Before stitching, you will be given anesthetic injection first in the area, so you don't feel pain. Mothers should also discuss with their partners in making decisions that are sewn or left because this decision will affect your partner as well. If you decide to sew, you should see the nearest obstetrician. Suturing the tear in the vaginal area that is wide enough should be done by an obstetrician. If not, don't forget to prepare for contraception to spread to the next pregnancy. At this time, you can get pregnant again. You should also see a doctor to check your blood sugar levels. Mothers who give birth to large babies usually have high blood sugar levels. If your blood sugar level is indeed high, you need to get good treatment.
That's all information from me. I hope this helps.
