Welcome to ehealthforum,
Minor cuts/tears can heal within 3-5 days. If the symptoms persist, or of gets worsened, visit your doctor/gynecologist at the earliest. Treatment as appropriate (based on examination findings and investigations results) would be started to help you. Consider being in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor/gynecologist and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately. Drink plenty of water. Take adequate rest. Maintain healthy diet and lifestyle.
Take care.
