Patient: Okay I just had my baby boy 4 weeks tomorrow . I had a vaginal birth unfortunately I had to get 3 stitches 1 on the left and 2 on the right , is it safe to have intercourse with my partner now or should I wait until my six week check up?
Doctor: Thank you for writing to us.I would recommend that you wait for the check up. Sutures take about 4 weeks to heal but this is an approximate figure. Waiting will not harm you. Please wait and then get checked up before intercourse. Wishing you good health.Hope this helps you
