Episiotomy stitches


When did urs dissolve?
I'm almost 4 weeks post partum and I can see a few black stitches still?
Also my bleeding picked up again this week and I'm sometimes getting shooting pains in my bits and my left lower side ...
Xxx

apparently the bleeding gets worse before it gets better! was never brave enough to look at my stitches but my just went away after about a month i think!

anything smelly is reason for concern or lumps bigger than a 50p.



nasty business isnt it... and they dont warn you about it!

I'm 3 weeks PP and the bleeding stepped up a gear again last night. I thought it had almost finished!

I haven't dared to look at my stitches either. x

Mine dissolved after about 6 weeks.
I also got the pains you described for about 10 weeks and then they just went. Like pp said anything smelly or lumps bigger than a 50 pence piece get yourself down to the drs.
The bleeding also wares off after about 5-6 weeks.

I was never brave enough to look but I think the bleeding can go on for a couple of months. I still get niggly pains down there, and it aches when I'm on my period which is weird.

It was def properly sore for more than a month, but I cant remember exactly how long.
