after pregnancy

i just want to know how long after i have given natural birth will my stiches be gone. The doc said that nothing went wrong, and the stiches would " desolve"  in about 10 days. But i still hurt. How do i know the stitches are out? And how long after given birth will we be able to be " intemate"  again?

It can take a few weeks to feel normal. You can look at the area and see if you can see any stitches, unless a continuous stitch was used. I would suggest that you wait about three weeks or until you feel comfortable, before having sex.
