Brief Answer:
Needs examination

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

I understand your concerns about bleeding.

Such type of bleeding is seen if there has been injury once while it was dry during sex. This if not healed will continue bleeding.

I suggest you see your gynecologist and get checked if there is wound inside vagina which needs to be healed.

I suggest avoid sexual Intercourse for next 20 days and give sufficient time for wound to heal.

Let me know if you need anymore help.

This will not grow further

Hi,

This blister will not get bigger.

This will slowly reduce in size over time. Avoid sex for couple of weeks and keep the area clean and hygienic.

Shave and wash

Hi,

It is advisable to shave the area clean, wash it twice a day with soap and water. Keep the area dry after washing everything.

This might cause some pain and reduce slowly.
