Small Vaginal Tear

So lastnight I was having drinks with this guy and things kind of escalated, we ended up having sex and I had never had sex before. He was very good about it, making sure I was okay and didn't want to hurt me. It hurt a little bit so he stopped.
But this morning, I had a little bit of a stinging feeling and noticed I have a small tear. Is it bad to have sex again while you have a tear there? He's moving away and we kind of my want make the most of the time he is still here.
Im just worried it will hurt really bad, or make it worse. Also if you have a tear and lube touches it, will it sting?

Did he use a condom? It could be small tears from sex in general. Sometimes that happens if you are not wet enough.

I wish I would have had a better "1st" but turns out I didn't so no matter! Anyway, a small tear might not be a big deal but wear a condom!! Always always Always wear a condom! Lube might actually help bc u might have a problem w sex. My first time was very very painful, I tore, and ended up having to pack my self in ice.it turns out I have a "shy cervix" and sex just damn well hurts! Lol just b careful and use a condom and never do anything while intoxicated or that u aren't sure of! Also get to a family planning center like adagio health.. if ur gonna b sex u ally active get information on it maybe Birth control plus they give u condoms n will b able to tell u exactly what's up w that tear!

Thanks for all the advice!
I would just like to add, we are both well of age, I'm in my 20's and he's close in age as well. Besides not using a condom we were responsible about the situation.

You need to go to the hospital, if you can see it. I tore myself last year, its a huge deal. If you dont get medical attention you could get a nasty infection. I couldnt have vaginal sex for 6 months. Unless you want to majorly damage yourself, id suggest reframing from having sex

I can't see them not using a condom. I would actually report that if that were the case.
