i was over at my friend's house and i was walking down the stairs. they have a wooden dog gate/child gate on the bottom step, and right when i was stepping over it, i slipped and fell right on top of the gate bicycle-style. it really hurt >< the pain eased off of course after awhile but I started bleeding from my vagina as well as from a few cuts ive gotten on my labias. the bleeding from my vagina minimized and is pretty much over with, but the cut on my labia is a bit sensitive and im worried about going to the bathroom, if I dont dab gently after using the toilet, it seems like the cut starts bleeding again. its not a severe gash, its like a small thin cut.
i was wondering if i should go to the doctor or maybe wait until tomorrow if it still is bleeding to see the doctor or if i could of suffered any injuries.
it doesnt hurt, it just feels like its bruised and i dont have any internal pain.

Ouch! That sounds like it was pretty painful!
If it's not bleeding heavily, and if the cut's not too deep, then you don't need to go to the doctor. The best thing you can do is to keep the area clean, and wear loose clothing and underwear to avoid irritating it. Genital tissue heals up pretty quickly, so give it a couple days before worrying too much.
