can blunt force trauma cause long-term damage to the vagina?

Yes: Blunt trauma can cause bruising, and cause skin/mucosa to tear. It does require some force but examples can be bike injuries or gymnastic falls on a bar or beam. The vagina tends to heal well but scaring can occasionally cause long-term problems like pain.
