Welcome to Healthcaremagic.

If it was episiotomy sutures you mentioned above ,Yes, its not safe to get into intercourse so early a minimum of 5 months would be safe.

Most of times such incisions are sutured using a absorb-able suture hence it is not the suture material you feeling it could be the scars left after healing in the cut areas.

This would be necessarily emergency condition if you have bleeding after intercourse.Do take care

Wish you good health.
