Question: Hi a lot of times I have sex the frenulum rips. It is ripped down to about half way already. I wanted to know if curcumsision was the answer and if insurance cover that since it bleeds when rips?

Hi
Welcome to XXXXXXX and thank for your query.
If bleeds repeatedly, it is better to get circumcised. Before that, try being gentle at sex and see if that makes a difference. Use of lubricants can also help.
I am not sure of the insurance, hence please contact your doctor/INSURANCE AGENT on this issue.
Wishing you good health,
Best Regards

I think it's a short frenulum as they say online that I have been reading about. It just hurts when I have sex and it happens then weeks afterwards till heals

Hi
Welcome back.
It is good that you aware of the condition. It is typical of FRENULAR TEAR.
Trial of gentle sex with lubricant use can be attempted before resorting to circumcision.
Wishing you good health,
Best regards

I had a penis frenuloplasty 4.5 weeks ago and I have a couple of questions. Firstly, there seem to be a couple tiny bumps (skin tissue?) at the top and bottom of the frenulum, is that normal? Secondly, when I pull the foreskin down initially it feels uncomfortable. I think its because the frenulum is a bit tough and it stretches out. Once it stretches out it feels completely fine and comfortable.

Uhm, hi. I'm 14, not too long ago I noticed these little, hard spots on my penile frenulum. There are about 8-10 of these white spots. I have never had sex, though it may not be relivant, i do get sexual.
If you have any idea what these bumps are, could you please tell me, and tell me how to treat it myself without going to the doctors about it? Thanks.

I have a question about the penis frenulum . During sex the frenulum ripped and cause bleeding. Now it's no longer attached to the urethra . Will the frenulum heal and grow back to its normal state? Will this make it harder for me to ejaculate?
