Hi, This is Sekar. I got married six months ago. I am having sexual intercourse with my wife quite often. But semen is not ejaculated during intercourse at any attempt. Last time I had painful sex and saw blood on my penis and inside her vagina after intercourse. But we are not sure whether bleeding from torn hymen (this is the first time we got bleeding) or from my penis. Later I found a small crack on the glans penis. I am unable to invlove in sex that time onwards as it causes pain these days too.Please suggest me if this is normal or I should undergo treatment.

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

So, basically, the other day my girlfriend & I were unergoing some sexual beheviour (She was quite vigeriously giving me a handjob) but it all felt fine, yeah. But I ve never actually stretched my foreskin back myself, whereas from her force, she managed to get it back quite some way.Since this (Yesterday, 17 hours ago) my foreskin has come back up, but only, this time it isn t completely covering my bellend, whereas it was before. 90% is covered, but the very top is visable, as if the foreskin is too.. floopy , or loose to cover my bellend back up again. It is literally just a circle shape at the top of my penis, and that is the only part which isn t covered up, but I feel like it should be. I m not really sure what to do/If I should be worried.I m 16 and not circumcised.
