Lightbulb Damaged frenulum (Banjo String)

Hi,

A few weeks ago during sex I felt a sharp pain from my frenulum area, when I went to look at it a bit later there was a small amount of blood and like a V shaped nik was torn on the outer edge. I refrained from sex for a week or so and kept putting vaseline on (I assumed this would help it heal).

Had "comfortable" sex about a week later and it seemed OK, until a couple of days ago when I did it again and there was blood again. It appears I've weakened my banjo string cos it's not torn all the way, but it's annoying if it's gonna keep breaking every so often.

Question is how best to make it heal, will it heal even? If so how long will it take? Has anyone else had this problem? Any help appreciated!

Re: Damaged frenulum (Banjo String)

been there, done that.
answer is, it takes as long as it takes. no more, no less. you did not weaken anything by tearing it. my experience is that it heals stronger.
mine tore for several months. it was driving me crazy. saw a doctor, he said there's nothing anyone can do, except for a circumcision, which would remove the entire area. the next doctor said, just let it heal. eventually, and we're talking about three months, it did heal for good. I've never had a problem with it since.
there is no magic bullet, just refraining from sex and masturbation, until it is fully healed.

Re: Damaged frenulum (Banjo String)

Many years ago the same happen to me... it tore several different times while having sex before it was all the way. Sometimes when it tore I wouldn't feel a thing, just some blood. I never went to a doctor for it would heal in a couple days and might not tear again for several months or even years. I think it took about two years before mine stop tearing. There is no scar, it's just like I never had a frenulum. I think it's pretty common.
If it is like mine it will continue to tear until it is all the way.

Thumbs up Re: Damaged frenulum (Banjo String)

same thing here, except for me i tore my frenulum when i was about 12 when i first started to jerk off... i remember it being totally painful and bleeding a bit, i didn't know what happened at the time, but kept quiet about it because i was embarrased... once i learned about all the parts of my anatomy i figured out what had happened, i got worried that i was the only person that it had ever happened to and that it would make me a freak (hahaha)... anyway, i'm 25 now and it's never been a problem at all, sex is normal, masturbation is normal (well, maybe too often, but definatly normal)... i have no frenulum at all, and i can't say it's ever been a negative... if it heals, great, if it tears all the way and you have to be frenulum-less the rest of your life... well, i don't think you'll really notice that much of a difference in your sex life... as far as i know, the only difference it made with me was that i could pull my foreskin farther back more comfortably after it was gone, which i kind of consider a a good thing because i never have to worry about stretching anything to the point where it hurts ... hope this info sets your mind at ease...

Re: Damaged frenulum (Banjo String)

Cheers guys, good to know I'm not the only one it's happened to then! Yer so as long as I don't put it under too much strain, I might get the odd small tear but eventually it will form a strong link and won't hurt any more..

Once again thanks for your help!

Re: Damaged frenulum (Banjo String)

i am very glad to read to have read this thread - i finally had the brains to check it out on the internet after years of this pain. first off...let's just say that i'm blessed in the phallic department. of course, this certainly increases the width that my foreskin has to stretch during sex. now, add to this my borderline personality disorder and my subsequent proclivity towards extreme promiscuity and...you've got a painful picture. but, very glad to hear i'm not the only one - oh, question, does anyone have a bit of pain urinating after this happens? i do.
