Sharp pain during sex after episiotomy

I'm 6 months postpartum and my episiotomy stitches have seemed to heal, however I feel like sharpness while having sex and my husband feels it too. I feel as though it's possibly due to my stitches not having been done properly or potentially opened ? . Sex is very unpleasant for me. help!

What has your gp said? You must get examined and possibly referred to gynae if there's any undissolved sutures or wound issues. Does it look ok, any discharge?
Maybe ask for this to be moved to the general health board you may get more advice.

Yes, it's hard to offer a diagnosis over the internet. All sorts of things can happen as the body heals - scar tissue can build up and press on nerves, or there might be some sort of small unresolved wound. A friend of mine had this problem, and was able to have another small operation on the NHS which successfully fixed matters, fortunately. But the GP is the first port of call.

Did you mean to repost your op? You need to see a gp and be examined. It could be anything and probably very easily fixed.

Well, as above, try the GP. You might have to persist with them a little, but in the vast majority of cases this can be improved.
