It's seems about an inch unsure of the depth but not bleeding

Thanks for the information.

If it is painless you need not worry about it.That means that it is likely not infected.Some increase in discharge is natural as the tissue around the tear gets inflamed and secretes lot more than normal.

Most such tears would heal on their own without any help being needed.If the the area becomes painful or if the discharge becomes painful you need to show it to your doctor to rule out any infection.

Otherwise just observation should be enough.

Do take care not to indulge in intercourse until the tear is fully healed and use copious lubrication before intercourse next time.

Do take a moment to rate my answer if done.Otherwise reply for any clarification.
