Patient: Hi im a 21 year old male who is not circumcised. I ripped my frenulum 2 days ago having sex. It hurts once in a while and i’m having blood stained underwear. I need to know what action to take and how long this will take to heal. When can I get back to a normal sex life?



Symptoms: Snapped frenulum, pain, slight bleeding

Doctor: Thanks for consulting us. Frenulum has blood vessel running through, hence the chance of bleeding are high. Torn one req uire at least one week to two weeks to heal. Till it heals completely, abstain from sexual intercourse. Consult general surgeon to check whether it may require suturing. Wish you speedy recovery.
