Brief Answer: Considerations Detailed Answer: Hello & thank you for submitting your question. It is unlikely you cut the area so deep that you will need stitches. However, if it continues to bleed after a day, you should have it evaluated. It is important to keep the area clean & dry, as possible. You can start dabbing on an antibiotic ointment also. It would be ideal to refrain from intercourse until the wound heals, as movement of the skin there might re-open the cut. I hope this helps & thanks again for submitting your question. Take care, Dr G
