Doctor :   How can I help you ?
Doctor :   Please go ahead .
User :   while having sex with my wife.. the inner skin of my penis got torned and blood came out

User :   is there any medication
User :   ?
Doctor :   It is very normal .
May I know your age , and when you have got married ?
User :   I am 31
User :   married in 2009
Doctor :   How much blood has oozed out ?
User :   first time it was quite a lot..
User :   yesterday it was not much. but it was paining..
User :   u there ???
Doctor :   Ok, Do you have a skin fold/ connection flap connecting the fore skin which is retractable and the inner skin at the posterior side or back of the shaft of the penis ?
User :   I am sorry but I couldnt get u
Doctor :   Ok, The skin that has got torn and from which blood has come is called frenulum.
Doctor :   It is very common to have a tear there and blood oozing out from there .
User :   ok
Doctor :   There is no need to worry.
User :   but is there any medication..
User :   how much time it takes to heal
Doctor :   It will subside , or may tear compltely and a surgical correction is called Circumscicion.
User :   ok
Doctor :   It depends, as some may have a tear till it is compltely detached , and everytime you have an intercourse then yu may have pain till at least 2-3 months , and once it is completely torn, there is no issue at all.
Doctor :   I would suggest two ointments : User :   so u mean to say it will take around 2-3 months
Doctor :   1. Kamillosan ointment in the morning after bath.
Doctor :   It is the max. time.
Doctor :   it may be less.
Doctor :   2. Soframycin/Clindamycin ointment in the evening after bath.
User :   this ointment should be put at the torn area
Doctor :   3. To avoid pain during intercourse, I would advise you to use Xylocaine 2% gel.
Doctor :   Yes.You are right.
User :   this gel will avoid pain during intercourse.. but what abt the blood which will come
Doctor :   It is a physiological process and will come out, if you want to avoid this, the best thing would be a one time Circumscicion, which will take 5 mins. hardly.
Doctor :   It is very common in all jews and moslems and is a very safe and medically astute procedure.
User :   so i need to go to a doctor for circumscicion ??
User :   otherwise it will heal itself it i use the ointments ...
Doctor :   Yes, I would say that half of the surgery is almost over while you had an intercourse , so it is just a small part that has to be incised, very easy procedure.
Doctor :   Yes, that is right, it will heal on itself.
User :   hmm.. ok
Doctor :   Doont worry.It will take some time.
User :   thanks doc for the advice...
Doctor :   Thank you for consulting me, Take care, Bye for now.
User :   bye..
