    I was aware of a small vaginal tear, but i didnt pay too much attention to it. Every time to have intercourse, even sometimes when being fingered, i bleed. A lot. I had intercourse today, and it hurt so much, and yet again bled. A lot. It's really embarrasing for me, and it never used to happen. Only in the last few months. I checked when i got home while still in pain -more so than usual- and the tear is now...quite big. And i'm worried it will need stitches? Any partner i have had has said i'm so small they think im a virgin. And everytime it hurts - It's not really stretched at all. Its realy hitting my confidence and i dont know what to do. From what i've looked at it appears it could be a second degree tear? But surely you only get that in child birth. I cant tell from the pictures on the internet how bad it is... Help me!

    Hi my name is Joanne 31 years old and i had my daughter 18 months ago i had a 3rd degree tear all down my vaginal wall and its only just getting easier whilst during sex (18 months later) its till feels a bit uncomfortable at first and then it does get easier, is this a normal time frame to heal from such a big tear or is it the scar tissue that may be causing the discomfort?

    when i had my son i tore my vaginal opening only it didnt heal and i now have 2 half inch slivers of vaginal wall pertruding out of my entrance. sex can be painful and sometimes they tear a bit more making them slightly longer with every healing. my doctor says it looks normal, do u think i should see a different doctor who may refer me to a surgeon or leave it be?

    Im 24 years old, and ever since I have been sexually active I have always experienced pain during intercourse. This has got progressively worse and I am now at a stage that I am unable to have sex without experiencing pain and discomfort with visable blood. I have seen sexual health consultants, my GP, been under a Gynaecology clinic and they finally discovered that when I have sex I tear in the opening of my vagina on my vaginal walls. These laserations then tear open each time I have intercourse. It appears there is nothing they can do for me, however for a 24 year old woman who is barely able to have sex I am running out of options. This is also extreamily frustrating for my partner. Is anyone able to help?

    Sorry dear, I know hw yu feel. Maybe yu shd date a guy with a smaller penis, it will reduce the tear and enable yu enjoy sex. Possibly yu have a small vagina.

    What was the cream suggested when after you have had a baby and suffer a vaginal tear which after healing becomes tight and causes pain during sex

    I don't know a cream, but there's a surgical proceedure (minor!) which can realign the muscle around the vagina, making it stretch the right way again, and stop the pain. I just found this out today!! Ask your GP to refer you to a GU clinic to ask a specialist.

    Re: Vaginal Tearing I had twins almost 18 years ago by natural means and at the time the damage to my vagina was so minimal that I didn't require any stitches. Since then periodically I have suffered from vaginal tearing even when I have had sufficient lubrication. Sex scares me as I know the skin will tear which in turn means that psychologically I don't get turned on enough to produce enough lubrication which in turn means I tear. I have tried many different lubricants to aid the process but the skin is so thin it begins to sting and becomes uncomfortable anyway. I have a large protruding vein on inner lips which also opens when the skin tears and bleeds. It can take a few weeks or a few days to heal depending how bad it is and where. I am very careful with hygiene products and how I wipe myself. I have been to the doctors and even the hospital one night when it was so painful I couldn't sit down...after a 10 mile bike ride. I am a keen cyclist. I have been tested for STI's and had numerous thrush treatments...nothing works. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Maybe he hasn't broken your hymen all the way, and every time it rips a little more? That's my best guess.

    I recently realised I had a tear in my vaginal region I'm only 17 so i haven't had children. I was told to salt bathe when I went to the clinic and that it wasn't warts or anything, now I have 2 spots that have appeared on my vaginal lip, and about 5 or 6 spots near the 'tear' which is between my anus and my vagina. I can't go for a wee or bend down, it even hurts to move or walk. I don't know what to do! Please help me.

    I'm not sure you mean your perineum. Your perineum is the skin between your vulva and your anus. There is, however, skin under your vaginal opening, called the fourchette, where the labia minora connect. It is thin and taut, and can tear. Does it tear with sexual intercourse or masturbation? Or all on its own? If it tears for no reason, that's something you should have checked out by your doctor. I really am perplexed by this "lilac spongy thing". Its next to your vaginal opening, as in only on one side? If that is the case, you should see a OB/GYN. If it is encircling your vaginal opening that is your hymen. Your hymen is most definitely perforated if you insert things into your vagina, that doesn't make you any less of a virgin though.

    I had sex with my boyfriend and have a tear. I tear sometimes but this time it swelled up and around the vaginal opening the wall looks a little swollen and bumpy with some bumps inside i think. I also had some tenderness where my ovaries are. Do i have an infection?

    go to see your gp so he/she can refer you to someone who can repair.

    You sound completely normal, this just sounds like your hymen to be honest, the hymen is just a thin bit of skin that covers your vaginal opening that virgins have and having sex will cause this to tear and sometimes bleeds although inserting tampons or other sport activities could also tear your hymen. It's nothing to worry about, im sure it is just this although if you are still worried talk your mum or GP.

    Hi, I am a 43 year old women & I keep getting a small vaginal tear everytime I have sex with my boyfriend. This is very sore & is affecting our relationship badly. It feels like I have this extra bit of skin at the entrance to the vagina near the perinium and it feels really tight and that is where the tear is occurring. I don't know if there is a cream I could use or if it requires surgery. I really would appreciate some advice as I have gone to some Doctors about this and they don't want to know. At this stage I don't know who else to turn to.. Thanks

    hi Siobhan, check out the thread on the vagina wall of photos page on this website, there is a question and answer between a girl called Nicola and me (dated the 4th feb so you will need to keep scrolling down)... it will save me writing it allover again... both of us have had an operation to fix this problem you are talking about and any GP who is any good will refer you to a specialist gynaecologist who can help you, for them to not help you is because they haven't seen it before, I was fobbed off for about 3 years before I found a doctor who would take me seriously (many others had insisted I had thrush even though I knew it wasn't!!!). if it is what I had then surgery is the only answer, but the good news is that it works. The leading gynae in this area of gynae is still Professor David Luesley as far as I know (he mainly works on cancer patients but also does this kind of reconstruction)- he did my operation and has allowed me to have a normal life. He works for the NHS and privately in the birmingham area so if you are anywhere near there it may help. You can insist that your doctor refers you to a specialist- it is your choice even though they might make you feel like it isn't! don't take no for an answer- you can even specify the doctor you want to see if they work on the nhs. Does this help? do you want any other info?

    Hi, I think I have vaginal prolapse after having 2 pregnancies, one of which was a 3rd degree tear. My doctor says she doesn't think so, but she didn't even examine me, she just said I was too young at 38. Amy advice

    My recommendation is to research out a specialist to confirm this concern for you. The statement your MD only verifies her ignorance and lack of knowledge as well as experience. It is very possible you may be experiencing vaginal prolapse. I believe it's worth the effort to confirm your condition no matter what the outcome.

    I have had 2 pregnancies and had no issues with either but I have vaginal prolapse and I am only 29. :( So 38 is NOT to young. I agree this shows your doctor is ignorant.

    I'm 21 and experiencing some of the same problems as you. It's usually when I have sex that I get a lot of vaginal tears, especially around the opening. But now it's even got to the point in which I tear if I bend down to pick something up or when I exercise. It's really getting me fine and I really don't know what to do.

    I ve noticed a small bit of my vagina has come out it looks like a flash cloured cheese string that comes from the bottom of my vagina and hags down to my anus not very bit. Every time i have sex the bottom of it really hurts im not sure if its meant to be there or my vagina has fell out? i ve tried to look up pictures of "normal vaginas" online but none of them have this piece of skin. I think it may be vaginal prolapse but i haven't had children, or a healed vaginal tear but wouldn't i of noticed if i teared my vagina?

    I'm disappointed with the lack of information on tearing. The link to the NHS site is about episiotomies not tears. I had a 2nd degree tear when I had my son 7 months ago but although I knew I'd torn as I was stitched up I only found out I had a 2nd degree tear by reading my notes. I didn't know what a 2nd degree tear meant, where I had torn or that sex would still be incredibly uncomfortable 7 months later.
