It happens: Its happened before and is unlikely to cause any problem if you removed what you could of the suppository. The blood was likely triggered when you overstretched/tore the hymen. With a little warm water wash and time the area will heal.If she has related symptoms of pain with voiding or vaginal discharge have her evaluated.
