Thanks for your query.

If you have never had this problem before, then I would suggest letting things settle down for a few days. Refrain from sexual activity. Take a warm bath daily. Let it heal. If, on the other hand, this is a recurring problem, then you should allow a physician to evaluate it. It could be that you have a condition called phimosis, or tight foreskin. Certain infections can cause scarring, which is another possibility. Also, whenever anything bleeds easily, we want to make sure it is not a cancer. But again, if this is a new problem, the first step is to treat it gently for a few days and seek a doctor's care if it does not improve.

I Hope I have answered your query. I will be available to answer your follow up queries. If you are satisfied with all my answer, please do not forget to accept it.

Hello again.

Yes, you may get circumcised if you wish. You would need to consult a urologist to investigate this further.

Regarding IUD (Intrauterine device), it is not a wire, rather it is a soft string that protrudes from the cervix. So it is unlikely that this is cutting you. Your wife may always consult her gynecologist if you or she wish to confirm this.

Thanks again for submitting your query. Hope I have answered all your queries. Please accept this answer if you do not have any other queries.

All the best,
Dr. J. Schwartz

the wires are XXXXXXX wires she told us and there sharp i saw them doc ...there is no possibility yu sure ...cause there long wires she dont cut them ....

the copper wire should be fully inside the uterus. the only thing that should be protruding from the uterus is the string that tells the women that the IUD is in place up inside the uterus. If the copper wire is protruding from the uterus, and there is something wrong and she should see her gynecologist.
