Thanks for writing to us.
The stitches in the perineum do not take more than 10 days to heal. If there is pain and discharge or the stitch line is open then it needs to be examined as the stitches sometimes get infected and do not heal the skin. In such cases secondary sutures may be required.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
