Message length 300 characters recommended

Much relief can be obtained from placing ice packs against the episiotomy area and using an inflated rubber ring to sit on. However, the vagina has an excellent blood supply and most cuts will heal in one to two weeks as long as the area is kept as clean and dry as possible.

Regular warm baths will help relieve discomfort. It is not necessary to add disinfectant solutions and it is important to avoid highly perfumed soaps and oils, which can irritate the healing wound.
