If the bleeding has stopped, then you are probably fine. The interior of the lower colon is easily cut and bleeds profusely. If it continues to bleed a lot, you will need to go to the ER, but if it has stopped, it's okay. You will be sore for a few days, and should make sure you do not become constipated since this can further irritate the wound.

In future, makes sure you use only safe objects in your anus. There are plastic objects sold for that purpose that won't cut you and which can be thoroughly cleaned after each use.

Please let me know if you have additional questions about this.

Kind regards,

It was vaginal

It was inside and I'm scared i cut something very deep

Sorry about that. The basic answer is the same though. All genital tissue is readily damaged and bleeding is even easier from the vagina than the anus. If the bleeding has stopped, you should be fine. Avoid masturbation and intercourse for the next few days to avoid irritating it.

Since the bleeding has stopped there is little chance you've done any serious damage.

Best regards,

Thank you so much!!! I was so embarrassed to go to the ER but I didn't want to go since it stopped bleeding. Thank you

You're so very welcome. But please don't ever let embarrassment prevent you from seeking medical help. Believe me, there is nothing we haven't seen in the ER - at least twice. LOL.

Be well,
