After delivery...if you tore..did you???

Did you look at your stitches or try to when you were feeling better.....outta curiosity..cause it was killing me and i was wondering what they looked like

and this may be a TMI question..but will my hoo haaa...go back will there be a gap where i tore..or will it go back together? It almost looks like they stitched the inside...its wierd..but then i think of it like a cut...its only been 7 days since i delivered..but just wondering if it will go back together..

  • I tore and had stiches and honestly didn't look down there! It will feel a lot better but takes some time....I just know after 6 weeks my doc said I could have sex again but it still hurt because of the area that had stiches! It didn't feel okay till 10 weeks. Just my experience though.

  • 1st time i was episiotomied,It left a scar. with my 2nd(4wks old)i am told I tore and they put stitches in.I did look when I got home from the hospital only because after I delevered my baby (at home,he came fast) I was rushed to the hospital via ambulance for emergency surgery and between the anasthesia and the blood loss i really wasnt sure what happened so i looked to see what they did and if i really did tear,and how badly.

  • its a lil weird to look at. but they do stitch inside and out. there will be scar tissue there that has to heal thats why itll hurt to have sex for awhile. it hurt for a long time bc if there is odd friction against it itll hurt so bad! but once it heals..your good to go! haha

  • It will heal in time. I have had 4 kids. 3 of them I had stitches after. The 4th one tore me and they said I didn't need stitches and I have healed. My husband always asks them to put in a few extra stitches--LOL
