This happened a little while ago. I was about 13 and was up in the mountains with my cousin who is my age.
One day her and her older brother Who was about 20 or 21 and in college as a premed and me went to go use this rope swing into this swimming hole. It was super fun but kind of hard to get to.
Anyway, it had just rained and I had to walk across this log and I had my oversized T-shirt on but underneath I just had my bikini on. It happened super fast, but I just suddenly slipped and instead of falling into the stream, I ended up straddling the log. It really hurt for a second but I was able to slowly get up and get to the other side. So I am walking up the trail and I hear my cousin kind of scream and then she comes up behind me and whispers and asks if I am on my cycle. I told her no and she said that I better look down. I did and I saw blood running down the back of my leg and I felt between my legs and it was saturated with blood.
I just kind of froze in shock and then I started to cry because I didn’t know what to do. My other cousin, Joel, came up and looked at me and said that I must have hurt myself when I fell on the log. This really sucked. We were 2 miles from our camp and at least 15 long miles from any town that might have a doctor or anything close to that.
My cousin said that Joel had a first aid kit and that maybe we could do something about it. I was pretty sure that I did have some sort of injury and it was probably in or on or near my vagina. And no one had ever seen it and to have my cousin see it was not exactly my first choice. I told them know that they could just go back and get some help and they looked at each other and said that they couldn’t leave me and she didn’t know the way back and he wasn’t going to just leave us so I just said whatever. I was just so self-conscious about my body because I had just shaved down to nothing but I have these kind of big inner lip and. Well. I guess they weren’t just my secret anymore. I hated my vagina.
But it was so embarrassing is all I can remember. I pulled my bikini bottoms off and they were all bloody. I was standing there almost buck ass naked with my cute cousin looking around my hoohoo. I kept my legs close together because I was hoping he could see anything wrong without me having to be even more exposed but my cousin said that he couldn’t see anything and Lisa said that I had to relax and lay down and bend my knees and open up. Being horribly embarrassed help me forget about how much it hurt to do that but it almost made me laugh thinking that I was laying there on the trail in the forest with my legs wide open with a super cute guy looking me over and probably was disgusted at my enormous inner lips.
They said that it look like it had stopped bleeding and he took out some stuff from his first aid kit and told me to hold pressure on it for a little bit and that I was nice and skinny and he could take me back to camp.
Once we got back to camp my mom freaked out and said we had to go to the doctor right now even though he wasn’t bleeding so we did but it turned out not to be that bad and they just put some skin glue on it. It was pretty sore though for a while. Later, I thanked my cousin for carrying me out and kind of jokingly asked him if everything looked okay down there he kind of looked at me funny and said, what do you mean? I said, you know, normal. He didn’t laugh or anything and just said yeah. Totally normal. Why? I didn’t want to tell him because it was embarrassing enough but Joel is a pretty smart guy I’ve come to find out. He knew what I was asking. He said that everything looked totally normal. And that if I was worried that the labia looked A little different from some of my friends, it was only because I was more mature and not looking like a little girl anymore. He said that some guy some day was going to love the way I was put together and I t made me feel so good and I have never thought about it or worried about it again. It was almost worth that terrible embarrassment of having to lay there spread eagle on the forest floor. Almost.
