Sexual intercourse, clitoral tear, bleeding, swollen vagina. Using epsom salt baths. Treatment?

I think i ripped my clitoris having intercourse two days ago. It was bleeding heavily and still bleeding when i wipe after urinating and when i do urinate, it burns when it hits the area. When i looked my vagina is very swollen and looks to me like my clitoris is split in half. Ive been using a&d ointment to ease the pain and taking epsom salt baths. What do I do?

Hello, and I hope i can help you today.

If you did actually injure your clitoris, it is important for you to see a physician for evaluation right away, as the area can become easily infected, and you may need sutures to close the wound. The clitoris has a significant blood supply, and will not likely stop bleeding unless you see a doctor.

I would recommend seeing an OBGYN physician for treatment, as lacerations to the clitoris are common during childbirth, so the doctor will be experienced treating this type of injury.

In the meantime, i would suggest using an antibiotic ointment instead of A and D as it will help prevent infection of the area. Please go to a local emergency room for care, or see an OBGYN physician as urgently as you can.

I hope you feel better soon,

Dr. Brown
