    Hi! I have no idea as I wAs always too scared to look after I had my DD.

    If you are 4 weeks post, you would likely have a check up in 2 weeks with your doc anyway? If so, I would mention it and they might like to check it out and make sure it is all going well down there.....

    Its still pretty soon after the birth- it takes time for things to go back to normal. If it's healing well, no signs of infection etc I wouldn't be worried. As pp said you will have a check up in 2 weeks anyway so I would leave it until then (obviously if you have signs of infection or anything it would be worth getting checked sooner though).

    Hugs love, it will I promise! I've had a forceps and vaccum delivery so cut both times. It took a little while but everything is normal again But if you are ever worried ask your gp to have a quick look.

    OP I don't want to scare you but please visit your GP. Sometimes the stitching isn't done very well or fails.

    I had an episiotomy and forceps delivery. I noticed it wasn't joining back together within a few days, I mentioned it to two different midwives. Both said it would heal up - even though the stitches were gaping. By my 6 week checkup it was clearly not healed up properly. I had to have surgery 9 months post birth to get it repaired. Thankfully it's fine now

    ETA I agree with other posters that things will look differently down below - but if it looks wrong to you please don't hesitate to get it checked out.
