Vaginal Scratch
Hi Gynaedoc,

I have a very embarresing question. Please nobody comment unless you can assist! This weekend while my fiance and I were having a little foreplay before making love, he accidentally scratched me inside my vagina. His nails are generally short, but I think he maybe got a bit carried away.

It wasnt sore when it happened. When I went to the loo afterwards, there was actually bleeding from my vagina. It was not consistant but the next afternoon, it bled again. It has stopped now, and just feels a little itchy-ish. Should I worry about an infection? Will this heal itself? Is there anything else I shouild know??? Please help?

It is likely to heal itself without any problems.
