Ways to detach the foreskin

Hi Doctor, I m 30 years old guy and I have a question that there is skin connected to my penis , it s on forefront part of my penis. I think it s called frenulum. I ve never had sex but I ve heard that it pains and bleed a lot when it breaks during sex. I m going to get married may be this year so I m worried about this. Once I was masturbating and a little part broke and it started bleeding and paining. Is there any way that I can detach this foreskin with some kind of balm or spray? I shall be very thankful to you.

Hi there.

Frenulum is a normal thin skin connecting foreskin to corona of glans penis. It may break during sex act which may cause some pain and bleeding. If it is very tightly holding together the above mentioned structures, it is called Frenulum breve. This can be problematic during sex.

It is advisable not to try to break it yourself as this can lead to complications like heavy bleeding and infection and further restriction of movement due to scar tissue formation.

If you have sex with good lubrication, there are less chances of this breaking and less chance of pain and bleeding.

You may consult your General Surgeon in this regard. Steroid creams or a surgery called Frenectomy can be advised according to your condition.

Wishing good health.

Sir, I am 26, and I think i have a full circumcision, and thanks to my ignorance I didnt know of this till now. I cant retract in erect or even flaccid state. I have never seen the glans nor even the start of my head. Is circumcision the only procedure, and even if it is not, can you give me an approximate as to how costly can the procedure be?

Hi. I am uncircumcised but I noticed that the end of my foreskin is rather loose, hence covering only half of the glans when flaccid. Is this abnormal? Is there a way to tighten the foreskin tip so that it fully covers and protects the glans (as it should)?

I've just had a lower labial frenectomy, due to gum recession. I'm concerned because I had two instead of one, under each incisor. I have searched the internet and can't find anyone else with this also asked various friends who all seem to have just one.
Does this mean anything, as all i'm getting in search results in 'human morphology'? :/

Hello specialists. I am Jay. I m 19 years old now. Turning 20 next year. I have a space in between my teeth . Around 3.3mm wide. I bought teeth effect bands from WWW.WWWW.WW For 5 nights of wearing the bands, I found out that my teeth gap is getting smaller. My concern now is that after using Orthofill and my teeth gap is totally closed, is their a possibility that it will reopen? And, is there something that I have to do so that my teeth gap will be close permanently?
