Hello ,

Thanks for your query

Stitches in vagina usually dissolve within 6 weeks so there can be slight bleeding.

If it is more then it indicates infection , better take a good course of antibiotic.Do consult your gynecologist and get examined to be sure about the well being of the wound.

Do not exert too much as it can worsen the condition.

Hope I have answered your query. If you have any follow up queries I will be available to answer them

Take care
