Doctor

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