Thank you for trying to find more information, I appreciate that! I've been told at my last 2 births that I'm completely dilated except for a "lip" and we wait just a bit longer and I know at times the mw has "helped" with it. Maybe the tear has been there? Don't knows since it's never been mentioned that I've had it before.
I was concerned that it could cause complications in pregnancy (miscarriage, pre-term labor??).
I think the risk is having scar tissue that may prevent you from dialting fully on your own during your next labor. I had a scar on my cervix that my midwife said probably wouldn't be an issue, but if it had kept me from dialating, she would have manually separated the scar tissue, which I've heard can be painful. Someone correct me if I'm wrong.
