Dear XXXXXXX,

Thanks for your query.

I think you may have torn your frenulum, which is common in people who are uncircumcised. There is nothing to worry as this would heal gradually.

The tear usually occurs because of friction and force during intercourse.

If the bleeding has subsided and there is no active bleeding while you indulge in intercourse there is nothing to worry and the pain will go with the healing.

You can apply an antibacterial cream to prevent any secendory infection though.

Hope I have answered your query. Please accept my answer if you do not have any further follow ups.

Regards

Dear XXXXXXX,

Thanks for your follow up.

In case the tear is not complete, you can have bleeding every time it is pulled. So it would be wise to get it examined by a surgeon to avoid further complications.

In the meantime, avoid constant traction and apply antibacterial creams. That would help you.

Hope this helps you. Please accept my answer if you do not have any further follow ups.

Regards
