Trauma to the external genitalia is manifested by bleeding, the formation of a hematoma, often extensive, in the area of large and small labia, in the vagina.If the clitoris is damaged, where there is an extensive vascular network, the bleeding can be very heavy.

Regardless of the cause of the damage, a thorough examination is required in the hospital, which includes special methods (rectoscopy, cystoscopy, X-ray, ultrasonography and NMR, etc.) along with the initial examination.
Treatment of genital injuries, as a rule, surgical. It consists of careful treatment of the wound, stopping bleeding by ligation of the vessels or with the help of tamponade. Less often, suturing is applied to the rupture (if the condition of a fresh "uncontaminated" wound is observed). For injuries that penetrate the vaginal vaults, laparotomy is indicated.
