I'm still feeling pain from my episiotomy after 6 weeks?? Is this normal? It's better than it was right after my Son was born but I thought I would be pain free after this long. It's almost like a burning stinging pain, how long did it take for everyone else to heal??

The sutures may be irritating you. The doctor may remove them at your visit. If you have a sits bath, use it. That will help irrigate the site, and help with healthy circulation.

Thank you for all of your help!! I will be honest with my Dr. about what I'm feeling. Yes I have looked and didn't see any broken skin or irritation. I did see what kinda looked like a stitch or two so I'm wondering if they are irritating my skin?? I didn't did too deep tho while looking I was kind of afraid of what I look like after child birth :-(

It isn't constant pain but it is irritating. No we haven't had intercourse yet. I do go for my 6 week check up in a couple days. I'm nervous because it's painful enough I don't want to be examined. I don't think I have a yeast infection because I'm not really itching it's more of a burning/stinging.
