Doctor :   Ok, Let me go through your query.
Doctor :   Ok
Doctor :   Now let me explain to you that what is happening to you is a very common phenomenon, so not to get panicky about that at the first step.
User :   ok
Doctor :   The foreskin usually is connected to the shaft of the penis posteriorly with a small skin flap called frenulum.
User :   ya i read about it
Doctor :   This very commonly gets torn in the initial stages during sexual intercourse in some men and doesnt in others.
Doctor :   If this is done surgically it is called as Circumcision.
Doctor :   Hope you have followed.
User :   i understand that
Doctor :   I understand the problem you are facing a of now and suggest the below measures and steps : User :   sure
Doctor :   1. If the blood loss is in excess of 5-10 ml , then the best thing is to get it done surgically.And wait for 1-2 weeks to heal completely.
Doctor :   2. If the blood loss is not much and is minimal and the pain is bearable than use a (A.) Water based gel for better lubrication ( B.) Xylocaine gel on the shaft of the penis and also slowly below the foreskin.
Doctor :   Hope you are following.
User :   ya i am
User :   as for blood loss .. the first time ip happened it coming out in droplets
User :   and took 4-5 minutes actually to stop completely
User :   second time it stopped quickly and was not much
User :   and for pain..the pain is actually bearable but it feels like the same place is getting hurt again and might start bleeding again
Doctor :   Ok, I feel that the first time the tear has been enough to retract the foreskin till the shaft and might have actually got torn from the Glans penis.
Doctor :   So not to worry.
Doctor :   Please do use Durex Play for easy lubrication for some time.
User :   Ok
Doctor :   And the Xylocaine gel.
User :   alright
Doctor :   Before the intercourse.
User :   but if the pain/bleeding continues..which doctor should i see?
User :   as in i read somewhere a urologist might be helpful?
Doctor :   And if you see some blood after the intercourse wash the penis properly with luke warm water and apply an antiseptic gel
User :   ok
Doctor :   Soframycin ointment would be helpful.
User :   alright
Doctor :   Yeah in case the pain gets worse and the blood loss is too much than you have to see a Urologist.
User :   Ok
User :   hopefully i wont have to :)
Doctor :   But I feel this will surely help you and you will be fine in no time.
User :   this is embarrassing for sure
Doctor :   Do also explain your wife about it
Doctor :   and be confident about yourself.
User :   thanks
Doctor :   Nothing to worry
User :   Thanks ... this was helpfull
Doctor :   Thank you for consulting me, Please let me know if you have anything else to ask ?
User :   i have not been able to sleep properly for last 2 weeks.. probably because of this being on my head and also because of the pressures at work place
Doctor :   Ok
User :   one last question
User :   if it comes to that .. how big a surgery is this and how much time generally does it take to get this procedure done?
Doctor :   Yes please go on.
User :   if it comes to that .. how big a surgery is this and how much time generally does it take to get this procedure done?
Doctor :   Yes regarding the surgery, it is a bed side procedure and may hardly take 10 mins. for the whole process.
Doctor :   May take one week to heal as the penis below the for skin is very sensitive to touch, so just need to get used to it.
Doctor :   And about your sleep, be confident of yourself, nothing wrong with you, feel free to discuss with you, And a ten minute of meditation and proper food - more fruits, honey and hot milk in the night before you sleep will give you more peace of mind.
Doctor :   *feel free to discuss with your wife.
User :   thanks doc
Doctor :   And to add the last advise fore play and after play are more relaxing and intimate than the actual intercourse so spend more of your time in that too.
Doctor :   Take care, Bye for now.
Doctor :   Hope I helped you in sorting out your issue and do let me know if I can help you better, Bye.
User :   thanks a lot
User :   bye
