Injury to Frenulum

Patient

Q: Dear Dr, a few nights ago I snapped my frenulum whilst having sex with a girl, I have a bit of it dangling will it heal back or just drop off?

Doctor

A:   Thank you for your question. We recommend that you have this area examined by a doctor to make sure you do not require any sutures to repair your frenulum. This will likely heal uncomplicated and the loose tissue will eventually atrophy and fall off. However, we cannot judge from your description the severity of this tear, so we would like you to have your doctor examine it to be certain it is not serious.

AskTheDoctor.com wishes you a speedy recovery.
