With Jack my stitches were still there at 4 wks pp (schedualing conflict with the Naval hosplital, and they made my 6 wk pp 2 wks early) and I had what I was told to be a 2nd degree internal tear (up my vagina, not just along the perineum) . But by 6 wks pp they had dissolved. I do not know what they looked like prior to being gone however.
With Kate, no stitches, so I still can't help ya there! Since your checking, do the tears/cuts look to be open, or do they look healed? I would still personally wait for the stitches to be gone before DTD, but if you aren't swollen, and when you move around if the tears stay closed then I guess do what you want.
My mw suggested to me waiting until at least 6 wks to dtd since I tore in 3 different places.
