Hi, An episiotomy does not usually cause problems so many years after the procedure. However as you are having pus emanating from the site of episiotomy the possibility of abscess or fistula formation can be suspected. Pus culture can be done to make the exact diagnosis. Antibiotics will be necessary. Consult a gynaecologist for an examination. The answer is based on information provided. Exact advice is not possible without a proper examination and investigations. You are requested to consult your Doctor. Take care and keep us posted.
