Swelling in the glans after circumcision. How long will it take to heal?

Hi - I am 28 and had circumcision 6 and a half weeks ago. I have eased back into sex life (gentle to moderate masturbation) but afterwards I tend to swell somewhat below the glans . It has taken a little longer to heal in a couple of parts especially toward the frenulum cut and where a stich had popped at one point. My question is- should I wait still to have sex or is a little swelling ok as long as there is no infection?

Thanks for your query.You have undergone Circumcision 6 weeks ago and wound is not healed up completely. It takes little long time for circumcision wound to heal compared to healing of a normal skin.I would advise you to refrain from any sort of sexual activity till it heals up completely.Please take some antibiotic and anti inflammatory drugs like serropeptidase to fasten the healing.Get these drugs prescribed from your family Doctor.
