It is essential not to have sex before the wound left by the cut has healed completely, as this could cause tearing of the area. In addition, the stitches must be completely reabsorbed, as this will prevent possible infections.

The recovery from the episiotomy is usually between four and six weeks, so after this period, there is no need for problems in sexual relations. In any case, it is important to follow the doctor's instructions.
