Can you tell me how I could heal a very bad vaginal tear?

Can you tell me how I could heal a very bad vaginal tear?

See Below...: Since you are 46, I'm going to assume you didn't just have a baby. (After birth, the treatment is different). A bad vaginal tear sometimes needs stitches. You need an exam to know. Estrogen cream will help the healing process as well. You should see an Ob/Gyn for an exam and further treatment. Obviously, you should avoid further truama via intercourse while it is healing. Best wishes! ...Read more

You should try to avoid any intercourse or penetrating vaginal activity. Try to keep the area clean (but with something like gentle soap and water with limited scrubbing).
