If a person hv opened the labia 2 check hymen a couple of times just look at it nd didn't touch it at all, would tht hv caused it to tear, break, stretch

If a person hv opened the labia 2 check hymen a couple of times just look at it nd didn't touch it at all, would tht hv caused it to tear, break, stretch

Not with usual exam: First, during each annual check-up, the pediatrician may pull on the labia majora briefly to look at the vagina to make sure a girl is developing normally. That stretching does not cause any tears. Things don't break that easily. Secondly, it makes no difference if it tears a bit, because in a normal healthy woman, the detailed features of her hymen are irrelevant (appearance does not matter). ...Read more

Treatment for small labia tear under clit?

Frenulum: This is an area called the labial frenulum. Traditional wound care is with 2-3 times a day cleansing or after urination/defecation with a sitz bath and/or gentle irrigation and light application of ointment. Small tears may be sensitive but typically heal in 7-10 days. Avoid intercourse during this time.

So today I discovered a medium size tear between the inner labia and the vestibule. It seems as if we used condom with not enough lube? Can this be?

So today I discovered a medium size tear between the inner labia and the vestibule. It seems as if we used condom with not enough lube? Can this be?

Labial tear: Ouch!! . Given your age - inadequate lubrication either natural or provided by lube can cause "dragging of the tissue especially with a condom and cause tears. I would suggest refraining from sex for at least a week to allow that area to heal - should heal rapidly - keep it clean and use an antibiotic cream and next time - use lube! ...Read more

3c tear w/ 1st child. 2 degree w/ 2nd. Now 6m pregnant & have swelling in perineum on one side continuous w/ labia maj. V painful pressure standing.

Varicose vein: This has not much to do with your previous perineal lacerations but instead, has more to do with your predisposition to getting varicose veins. Usually more prominent on left labia majora. Differs with placental location, how low the baby is, number of pregnancies, etc. There are some pregnancy belts/slings that claim to decrease the swelling and discomfort. Try side-lying on opposite side. ...Read more

I have a small, superficial tear in crease of labia major&labia minor. No blood, no stich, just red and sore. Can I use lanolin to protect it? Heal at home?

You can: But zinc oxide (diaper stuff!) would protect you from the burn of urine, and promote healing as well. No need to see anyone. Sit in warm bath, dry off well, apply z.o. and a tissue. If it feels good, you can sit on a small comfortably warm heating pad to promote healing. ...Read more
