Episiotomy
Hi Doc


I was wondering if you can help me answer my question. I had a small episiotomy three years ago when my daughter was born, and now i noticed the other day that where the stitches were, i have open cut. I dont have any pain or discomfort. I also dont have any infections, its normal but just looks cut. Will this pose a problem in later life? Would the Gynae restitch or how would they put it back together? Thanks

You would have to see a gynaecologist to assess the area.
