Straddle injury in child, please help her

My daughter fell at gymnastics last night in a straddle position and has had slight bleeding and a small amount of discomfort. should we see a doctor or will it just heal on its own. don't want to scare her by taking her to the doctor only to be told it will heal on its own.

I think you should leave it to heal, but if bleeding and discomfort lasts for over 3 days, you should consult her pediatrician.
