    Stitches?

    Advertisements
    After I had lil' bebe, the stitches are dissolvable... any idea on how long it takes them to go away?

    When I google'd, I got the answer of "typically two weeks", but "varying on location" so I was curious to see if anyone knew the average time. Doc never told me before I left the hospital.

    Well, when I had sex 4 weeks after having Jaxon, let's just say they were still there. But, they have always been gone by my 6 week PP check-up, though.

    Are they from a c-section? If so mine took about 4 or 5 weeks for all the strips fell off and they were gone also. If it was natural I have no idea.

    Darn it. That means I still have two weeks left to go... I was hoping that DH and I could have a lil' for his birthday on Sunday.
