Hi,
Welcome to the forum. I am really glad to help you out.

Vaginal lacerations/injuries can vary a lot in their severity. The repair depends on the extent of the damage to the vagina or the bleeding from the injury.

If there’s minimal or no bleeding, then of course, the worry is much less. However, if there’s marked bleeding, then consulting a gynecologist becomes an emergency.

Local application of some antiseptic like savlon or betadine is enough. It ensures in preventing the development of any infections.

You don’t need to take any antibiotics for the same. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care.
