Ripped stitches, what to do? *updated*

Fourth you ask? Your body is still full of pregnancy hormones as you adjust to life sleep-deprived with your new baby outside your womb.

Ripped stitches, what to do? *updated*

Postby Wishingandwaitingnomore! » Sun Nov 15, 2009 11:49 am

:oops:

DH and I DTD @ 3w2d PP and I did rip the stitches. There's no pain, excessive bleeding/swelling/redness.

Should I call the doctor on monday or continue to soak in the bathtub to aid dissolving?

I know the doctors say wait until you are 6 weeks, but mine told me that when I felt ready I could, and that the 6 week guideline was more to keep daddies at bay.

TIA!

***updated***

Went to the doctor this morning and she removed the stitch that had ripped. Nothing else tore and she said I was healing well, but would wait another couple of weeks before trying.

She did make me feel better in saying that she see's at least 2 women a week with the same complaint, lol.

Well, I don't know what to tell you hon! But congrats on baby Gabriel, I've been stalking you since you got your bfp.....did you have a really severe tear that might need to be re-stitched or was it just a couple of stitches?

My stitches came out while cleaning myself down there at about 2wks. It was only 2 stitches I didn't have any pain so I didn't call my Dr. If you had a severe tear I would call to make sure you don't have get it re-stitched.

BTW, Did it hur to DTD? LOl I'm scared 8O

Thanks ladies. I'll go in - better safe than sorry.

Mspretty: It wasn't bad at all. I psyched myself out thinking how much it was going to hurt, but was pleasantly surprised! We used a condom and LOTS of lube.

Aww thanks honey! He's such a great baby, and it's wonderful being a mother!

I'm not sure how many stitches I got, I only know that I had a second degree tear.

Ya'll are cracking me up!

Seriously though, I went like the whole pregnancy sexless, and I had a MONSTER drive. So I thought "Hey..." haha

I hope to God they don't restitch me. I can't even imagine how badly that must feel. I don't have the best view down there but it looks okay from what I can see :lol:

Averysmomma: Thanks for the reassurance. I know I'm probably going to get scolded, but hey, at least we used protection! Probably would have been scolded more if I came back in with a positive pregnancy test haha
