HI
Well come to HCM
I really appreciate your concern, if you are talking in sense of hymen tear then there is no fix criteria for this, but most of the time it does not cause any bleeding and if it does then this is nothing to worry because this may not need any treatment, if the bleeding does not ceased then this need to be clinically examined for injury to the lower portion of vagina called "Perineum" in very rare incidence this can be injured and cause profuse bleeding if this is the condition then, may need repair, hope this information helps, take care.
