Conditions with symptom: 'vaginal tear'
My left vaginal wall tear 1 c.m. while doing intercourse with my boyfriend.i did intercourse frist time.this tear is repaired by the doctors.4 stitches are given.but still i have a pain around the area of injury.is every thing normal??can i do intercouse normally??
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?
get a second opinion or better still ask for a referral to a specialist. They dont have to live with it, you do, and im sure something can be done to help.
How do i go about having my vaginal tear repaired. My doctor says it cant be done on nhs?
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.
After giving birth can you be left with skin tags on your vaginal opening? Every time I have sex it's like they tear a little bit and bleed which hurts
Everytime i have sex with my bf i get a tear at the bottom of my vaginal opening. it heals kinda but retears each time. its so painful as i can feel the skin ripping! sometimes we cant have sex because im in agony from it. This obviously isnt normal does anyone have any explanations or advice?
Maybe he hasn't broken your hymen all the way, and every time it rips a little more? That's my best guess.
