I have a quick question for my friend.

She just had her first baby vaginally on Saturday and asked me how long her stiches will take to dissolve, I told her like 2 weeks. Then she said she had her husband look and he couldn't see any stiches. I had my son 10 years ago and I looked at myself and I saw my stitches. Are they using something new these days like transparent thread?

  • My guess is they may dissolve at a different rate for everyone, or maybe they were made out of different materials.
