Is it possible for a tear in the vaginal wall to heal on its own, or is it something that can only be treated by a doctor?
Whether or not you need to see a doctor will depend on the extent of the tear. Does it bleed even without intercourse? If it does, then the tear is probably extensive enough that you should be checked. If it's just a little spotting or only happens with penetration, then it is probably superficial and will heal on its own. First and foremost, you should abstain from sex until it heals. I hope you have been using condoms because that will cut down on the chances of an infection, but no intercourse now with or without a condom. You need to let it heal completely. If the area is sore and it this doesn't go away soon even without sex, then you definitely need to see a doctor to check the extent of any tear and see if you have an infection.

i have a similar problem except the bleeding has started after masterbation and the bleeding has been pretty heavy. its been about three days now and the bleeding seems to be getting worse but im not sure if im getting my period. what should i do?
If there is any chance the bleeding is still from a tear, you need to see your primary doctor. Even if you're wondering if your period is part of it, it would be wiser to have it checked than to wait.
Good luck to you,
If your vagina is that vulnerable, I would recommend you stop using tampons and see your gynecologist for a prescription for vaginal estrogen. The estrogen will actually thicken (basically heal) the tissues.

hey i do have a similar problem .....doc agve me some medicine and ointment 2 apply .still the blood clots persists ...do any1 have solution to my problem ....plz help
I have the same problem right now. I think i have teared my vagina wall whilst having sex. To be brutally honest we went a bit rough pretty much as soon as we started sex, i think i wasn't lubricated enough and it has ended in a split. It has happened before but it was only spotting of blood. However i haven't stopped bleeding yet from this morning. When i pee it doesn't hurt however i have a slight pain i could only explain as being sort of like period pains. I know it isn't my period as i only had one 2 weeks ago and im on the pill so its always 3 weeks apart. I'm not sure what to do or if i should go visit the doctors. Help please?
my partner is also getting that problem, she with with her last partner and during sexual intercourse her partner made her bleed and hurts her during intercourse now can anyone help?
Men my boyfriend were having sex and we were "going hard" and I kinda felt like a sharp pain before he pulled out. But then I went pee and there was little blood. And its been 3 weeks and my vagina still hurts. Even if we do foreplay. Its a sharp pain when it goes in. Bit after its in it doesn't really hurt that bad. But it only hurts at a certain spot and I don't know what it is.
