The Stitch Marks For Normal Delivery Are Still Painful?
good morning r nI want to ask, a year ago I gave birth normally and got stitches, but the problem is even though it’s been a year that the stitch marks still hurt during intercourse. I was given an ointment. I want to ask what caused the stitch marks to be red (still painful) and can they heal by being treated with ointment ??
From the information you have conveyed, there are complaints about normal labor suture marks that are still painful, even though it has been going on for about 1 year, then this condition may be caused by inflammation around the stitches or inflammation of the tissue around the stitches. The presence of infection in the female, or infection in the female gland can also cause complaints of pain in the suture area to recur.
However, you can confirm this by direct examination by an obstetrician as you do. You should continue the treatment given by your doctor, so that your gynecologist can evaluate the healing process with the treatment that has been given.
Whether it's ointments or other medications given, continuing treatment according to the obstetrician's plan is expected to help reduce this inflammatory process. If this complaint still persists and the drugs given have run out, then you should resume control back to the doctor who treats you at this time.
The doctor will continue the treatment and plan the appropriate management to control this complaint.
That's the information we can convey, read also the discussion.
