Aaawww!  I don't think your doctor was a butcher.  Sometimes birth requires epesiotomy, or 'ripping".  It's not abnormal.  Once you heal fully, you will be able to enjoy sex just as you did before pregnancy.  Please do not have sex until your doctor okays it.  Blessings to you and your newborn life! - Blu

I agree with BluCrystal. You really should not have intercourse until after your 6 week checkup and you get the okay from your Dr. You body really needs that amount of time to heal.
Yes, it's very common to need stitches after giving birth. Your incision should be healed completely within 6 weeks.
