I had a hysterscopy/d&c for vaginal bleed. The doc told my family member I had "stitches" and I was told complete pelvic rest. Are stitches normal?

1 doctor agrees

In brief: Rarely

Stitches are not routine, but sometimes they are necessary if during the procedure you may have had excessive bleeding from your cervix/vagina related to any superficial damage that the procedure may have caused.
This is okay and you should be totally fine after you heal.
