Hi there,
I have a small open blister on both sides of my frenulum - it's a bit sore and stings a little bit.
I had unprotected sex with a female a week ago and I also had genital to genital contact with a male also a week ago.

Respected Sir, Im 28 years old and I have a condition where the foreskin doesn't retract automatically, my family members are on the look out for a bride for me and I'm unsure whether this will result in pain during copulation. To be more precise the foreskin (fairly thick frenulum) is attached to the opening of the penis (top of penis head) and can be retracted manually when erect (slight discomfort) and the glans is not fully visible as the base of the glans is still having the attached foreskin. I want my foreskin to be intact and hence I would not prefer circumcision, being a type 2 diabetic suggest whether frenuloplasty will work in my case Thanks in advance Sir

xThis may sound stupid, however, I am extremely worried. I am a teenager and as one does, I decided to 'experiment' with various methods of masturbation. However, today once I had finished I noticed there was bleeding on the head of the penis, not out of the urethra. The frenulum was bleeding as were a part of the head of the penis, (the glands from what I've gathered from diagrams). Straight after noticing it I washed the cut with water, before applying both soap and water. In total I've washed it around 4 times today, yet when I pulled down my foreskin earlier there was a goo on both of the bled areas (puss?). What should I do, I am getting seriously worried, should I see a doctor, is it infected or is it a mere cut? Thanks
