So I recently started sleeping with a guy with a larger penis than I'm used to. A small vaginal tear occurred and within a few days it had grown and seemed infected. I went to the ER because I am on vacation right now and it was the only place that took my insurance. A very stressed-out looking doctor told me it was a cyst that came from either herpes or bacterial infection.
I'm being treated with clindomycin vaginal cream right now, but the cut has yet to heal. In six days, I'm returning to my home where my boyfriend is waiting.. I'd really like to be all healed up and ready to sleep with him when I get home. Will I be healed by then? What can I do to make it heal faster?
If it is a bacterial infection it would take about a week to 10 days for the infection to heal but if the cause is herpes or any other STD then the treatment would be started accordingly.
Try to refrain from sex till the time it is not healed completely as the infection may spread up.Vaginal cuts can be prevented by using enough lubrication and more of foreplay.Kindly visit a gynaecologist for a correct diagnosis after examination.
