Q:

Hi. After normal delivery, how long will it take for the stich to heal completely? It's been almost a month and now in the stich area I have light pain. When I consulted my gynaecologist last week she said it's healing.. But now it's paining



Neha Mani Mishra

Actually to heal it completely take around 5-6 weeks that is why sexual activity is also suggested not to be pursued before 6 weeks. If the doctor said that it is healing that nothing to worry. Do was the area with warm water once or twice a day

Anonymous c-section is definitely account for life so it does take time to heal after all this stitch so please give your body a lot of breast keep that area dry clean while you have a bath and try not to exert yourself much so that you don't get that kind of pain.
