However, some women have to bear some complications even after delivery. One of these is the perineal tear.
While coming out in it, the vagina gets pierced from the head of the baby. Vaginal tear is common and it is not serious and gets better quickly but in some cases it may take longer to heal.
How does the vagina peel off?
The peeling of the perineal skin between the vagina and the anus is called perineal laceration. During delivery, when the baby’s head comes down towards the vagina and perineum, the thin skin here is pulled to push the baby out. If the skin is not fully stretched at this time, then the perineum may peel.
