The Characteristics Of The Stitches That Come Off After Giving Birth?
Good morning … I am 19 years old, I just gave birth to my first child 5 days ago. Is it normal if the stitches on my vagina come out? And if I carry on with the activity, does the thread feel in my vagina? I was only the first so many of my ignorance …
Hello. Thank you for the question submitted to HealthReplies.com. We can understand the concern you feel.
Do you mean "used stitches" are threads that look out of the vagina?
If you mean stitches, this is a normal condition because you had just given birth 5 days ago so that the threads have not been absorbed by the vaginal mucous membranes, are visible, and are felt during activity. Some types of yarn that can be absorbed (absorbable) are usually absorbed perfectly within 2-3 months, some are taking up to 6 months, depending on the type of material.
In order for your condition to be properly evaluated, you are advised to conduct a postpartum control visit to the midwife, doctor, or obstetrician and gynecologist. The closest postpartum visit recommended to your condition is about 1 week postpartum. During the visit, the doctor can assess whether there are problems with the stitches in your birth canal so that the treatment given can be adjusted to your situation.
As a recommendation, you should get adequate rest, eat a balanced nutritious diet, always maintain hygiene in the pubic area, and avoid using underwear that is too tight.
