What signs would you look for to see if your vaginal stitches are infected? I've been to the doctor twice and she said that they were healing well, but after my last visit over 2 wks ago (that included a pelvic exam), the area was sore and it started to burn a little when I peed. It still feels that way now and occasionally stings in that area. My next appointment isn't for another 2 wks and I just want to make sure this is normal. I had a 1st degree tear, but developed a hematoma and had to go to OR to get it drained. My OB said that the tear was deeper b/c of it and more internal I think.
