Did anyone tear or have an episiotomy and your stitches never dissolve?

I tore really bad and had a lot of stitches and 4 weeks later I could still feel them. (I was told they would dissolve by the end of 2 weeks...) Went into my OB and she said that every stitch was still intact... Has this happened to anyone else??

  • No, My OB cut the knots on my stitches for me because they were VERY uncomfortable. I think she did that maybe around 4 weeks. I know that I didn't wait the full 6 weeks to go in for my checkup. She never told me that they would dissolve... I guess I could've had a different kind.
