Torn perineal stitches

okay probably well past TMI but I had my second a little over a month ago and started doing the deed a bit into three weeks PP and agitated my stitches pretty bad BUT it didn’t hurt well today at like 5 weeks and a few days PP one stitch completely came out. Like knot that tied it together and everything 😅 I don’t want to bother my OB as I have my 6 week check up next Wednesday. Should I call and go in sooner? It doesn’t hurt but I have a high pain threshold.

Are they dissolvable stitches? They really should have dissolved by now, if the wound still isn't healed I would get it checked ASAP as it could be a sign of infection x
