I've not been able to find any references by docs - but apparently it is the extra stitch or two taken after an episiotomy to negate any natural stretching that may have occured during birth. When this comes up in discussions, you usually get several firsthand accounts of too-tight sewing, but very few that believe this to be anything other than a mistake on the doctor's part.<br />
You also get second-hand accounts of docs doing it. But I've not found a firsthand account, so it may still be urban legend.<br />
If true, it seems incredibly silly and inconsiderate to do this without discussing with the lady.

Not until you mentioned it. From what I can learn it just makes the opening tighter, resulting in painful sex.

Some of the things I read said it resulted in tearing for the woman, eg here:
http://www.mothering.com/community/t/264611/can-someone-explain-what-the-happy-husband-stitch-is
Various ladies posting saying:
"My mom mentioned this to me once...she said that sex was VERY uncomfortable for her after this"
"I don't know if it was intentional or not, but I had that after my ds. It was miserable. Things were rather tight to begin with prior to baby, so I sure as heck didn't need anything stiched tighter."
"I attended a birth whre not only did the dr. do it,she laughed about it while she told the parents about it. I was FLOORED. I guess the only "good" thing about it was that at least she forewarned them that it was going to be extra tight"
"I swear the dr did this to me when he was stitching me (I tore),"
And on Snopes:
"I was given a "husband's knot," an extra little stitch in the perineum to make me "a little tighter" than before. (Our sex life was impaired for the next eight months due to this absurdity.)"
