After the birth of my daughter I suffered a laceration. My midwife determined the laceration should not be sutured. She believed the laceration would heal on it own and it would take some time heal. However, after three months postpartum the laceration has still not come together, and its can be painful sometimes. At my 6 weeks postpartum checkup my midwife looked at the laceration and reaffirmed that it would heal.
I then decided to go have a IUD inserted at a local clinic. While at the clinic the clinician took a look at the laceration and stated that laceration was in fact healed and that it has healed in two separate segments. She also said in order for it be one again they would have to make a tiny incision and resuture the area.
After I had the conversation the clinician I contacted my midwife and let her know what the clinician told me. She again stated that it would heal and that it was a bad idea So now I have a laceration and I have no confidence in it ability to heal on it own and I am clueless about what to do next.
