Is it a vaginal laceration, labial, clitoral?
Many lacerations do heal on their own - and sometimes using sutures can be traumatic too. Labial lacerations are sometimes hard to suture back together, and will heal in two segments. This isn't a problem, but can be upsetting because of the way it looks.
If you're still having pain, getting it repaired seems like a good idea.
Another thing-while taking responsibility for one's health is a cornerstone of midwifery care, and the philosophy of most people here on this board, it can be a two edged sword-I hear lots of language that indicate self blame. Your body can heal itself just fine, but it needed/needs some help.
Some women need c sections, some babies need resuscitation, and some tears need to be stitched.
