Have a shallow bath at least once a day with a few drops of lavender oil in to help the healing. It took about 10 days for my stitches to dissolve, although it was still tender to the touch. I only had the pain when peeing for about a week though xx
I'd say couple of weeks but mine healed quicker n felt much better if I showered or had a plain water bath throughout the day then dried down ther with a cool hair dryer! I started havin a quick shower after every wee n just holding shower head down there cos it was so painful!
I feel for u! My stitches with dd were in labia n I hated it but once they start healing up be fine!
Oh ps try not to wear any tight clothes around there n wear cotton knickers! I lived in pj bottoms for 2 weeks n big cheap knickers!
