Q: Will my episiotomy scar reopen?

Q: Will my episiotomy scar reopen?

by Dr. Barb DePree MD

You say your baby was born two-and-a-half years ago, and you still get some soreness in the vicinity of your episiotomy. It would be very unusual this long after a birth for the scar to be an issue. A somewhat common cause of pain, vulvodynia, is often blamed on an old episiotomy scar. It just happens to cause pain near the site of an episiotomy. 

Please see a women’s health specialist for a careful history and physical exam to help determine what might be the cause of pain. You don’t need to just live with it.
