I had my daughter on march 19th and I still have my stitches in they dont hurt but does anyone know how long it takes for the stitches to dissolve?
I am going crazy I want them to heal already. Thanks for any info you can give me.
It took about 6-8 weeks for my stitches to heal completely. At my 6 week postpartum visit, they were still there and there was one spot with many stitches clumped together and they took the longest to dissolve. Hope that helps!
Don't you just HATE stitches? I was mad that they even stitched me since I only had a 1st degree tear. My stitches came out at about 3-4 weeks, but I'm sure going longer is still normal too. I know I was really happy when I started seeing stitches in the toilet! I was jumping for joy!!! I really really really hate stitches. : I hope yours will come out soon. It feels SO much better once those irritating stitches are gone.
