Tears In The Vagina
Natural Healing: The good news is that area has fantastic blood supply and so healing will occur rapidly. Inflammation (red, hot, tender swelling) is the body increasing the blood flow to the injury to bring healing factors to the area and also the veins expand to carry bad stuff away. Dressings and ointments are of no value there. Avoid further trauma to the area and let nature take it's course.

Needs to be seen: If you are experiencing a vaginal laceration from sexual activity then it is important that you are seen for a physical examination. Especially if it is still bleeding. Although rare sometimes surgical repair is needed for deep, bleeding tears. The ER may be your best bet this weekend.

Vaginal tears: Need to have that looked at by your ob/gyn.
See your gyn: Or the er so they can check it and make sure it does not need stiches or antibiotics.
Minor trauma: Sometimes using a good water-based lubricant will help to decrease the tearing. Sometimes women are more prone to tears if they have certain medical conditions.

I have vagina irritation does vaseline petroleum jelly work I been applying it to my vagina area will that help plus I have tear on my vagina also?
Petrol jelly only: Helps as a barrier for the surfaces that happen to be hurting or irritated. IT does help to lubricate and moisten the area as well. As far as I know, it does not cause any significant chemical reaction to the mucosal surface of the vagina or vulva. For cuts it may be best to use Sitz baths and Hazel Tucks (witch hazel) pads.

A small tear in the vagina from sex. (no STD).been there for 2months already. What can I do for it to heal faster? (intercourse gets painful).
Abstain: The body has a tremendous ability to heal if we let it. The first & best way to handle an internal scratch or tear is to let the tissue rest. Any intercourse or sex toy use during healing can re-open any tissue and result is slowed or deficient healing. A gentle douche can rinse the site but pressure should be avoided. A full exam by a gynecologist may help direct your healing efforts.
I recently became premenopausal. Started using Premarin (conjugated estrogens). Noticed a tear in my vagina and not sure why since I have not had sex. What can it be?
Interesting question: The answer is not entirely medical. In body image conscious Brazil, 90% of women do have c-sections to prevent damage to their pelvic organs. In the USA, a normal vaginal delivery is considered less risky than a c/section and most insurance companies won't pay for an elective c/section because it is more expensive than a vaginal delivery. Some Ob/Gyns will do elective c/sections if desired.
Vaginal estrogen: Vaginal Estrogen (Prescribed by your doctor) will help with most of these symptoms. Its also a good idea to use a lubricant during intercourse. Best wishes!
