It is not necessary to rest or change daily activities. However, it is advisable not to make excessive efforts that may complicate healing. In addition, it is essential to avoid as much as possible the humidity of the vaginal area, since dryness helps the wound to heal.

On the other hand, the specialist usually advises to avoid sexual intercourse for 30-40 days, for the same reason: to avoid moisture. Some women have bled because the wound was not well closed during sexual intercourse.
