Hi,
Welcome and thanks for posting your to HCM.
I can understand your concern for heavy bleeding caused by penile tear.
Now the reason for bleeding is the simple injury caused during the excitation. As penile tip is quite soft and vascular structure so even a small tear bleeds a lot, if is on glans penis or even on shaft. If the tear is bit deep or blood is still oozing then your husband should take proper antibiotics under medical guidance. Other wise if the area is not oozing or the tear appears to be superficial then need not to worry much as the tip is having good blood supply and will heal in few days.
Now for the second part of question, is there any reddish discharge coming out form your vagina. If it is there then you can simply do vaginal douches which helps out in cleaning the vaginal area. Otherwise also due to gravity and standing position the blood itself comes out from the vaginal portion. As per your history also most of the blood spilled around you and over the bed. The remaining amount of blood if at all is there then will not be causing any problem as is almost negligible amount.
The last part of suggestion is not to have sex for around 5-7 days period to avoid further injury.
hope to have provided the best possible information,
With best of hair wishes,

This is may be due to too much friction between penis and vagina as you mentioned your age 56 Y , in this age your vagina will be dry so due to this reason i think your husband got this injury. Kindly consult with your doctor for proper treatment and use extra lubricant during intercourse, or some time its happen due to male yeast infection.Some time extra penile skin also cause bleeding or cut in such type of conditions when vagina is too much dry .

Hello,
Thanks for choosing health care magic for posting your query.
The tear that your husband has surely needs medical attention. He may have to be started on some antibiotics and the wound area be cleaned and dressed.
As far as you are concerned, the blood in the vagina will not cause any harm to you. You can clean it as far as possible ans the rest of it will come by self.
Even it stays its fine and will not cause any problem to you.
avoid sex for 1-2 weeks until the tear on the penis heals.
Hope I am able to answer your concerns.
If you have any further query, I would be glad to help you.
