I had an accident with my partner two days ago that broke my frenulum. Just before we engaged in intercourse, she slipped, and her body slid and rubbed against my foreskin (w/o lube) and tore the string band that attaches the foreskin to my penis, the frenulum, and pulled the foreskin back farther than it's supposed to. It was painful and bled a lot at the time. But I was able to stop the bleeding, without going to the ER. Though the bleeding has stopped, I am still very worried.
I am trying to see an urologist but it will take at least a week before I can go for my visit and the cost is not covered by my insurance, so I want to ask some of the knowledgeable/experienced people on this board. Also, I hope to hear some positive answers, because I cannot focus on other things until I know that I will be okay. I've read that some people have healed from this type of accident, but I think my problem may be more severe because her body weight slid against my penis.
I checked out my penis today and see that the frenulum is completely torn. I don't see how the frenulum will grow back by itself, but the pain has subsided since the day of the accident. Will I be able to have normal sex later? I am afraid to do anything right now, like pulling back the foreskin, because it may hurt the healing process. I read that I should keep it clean and use antibotics cream, but I'm afraid I may make it bleed again if I open the foreskin.
I never thought something like this would happen, but I guess this is why we called them accidents.
It might help, if it really is that torn, to have a stitch or two.
Otherwise, the healing process is a slow one. In my experience, I had to give up sex and masturbation, until the frenulum was fully healed. That took me three months to learn. Until I stopped, it just kept tearing. Once it healed, it healed completely, and was never a problem again.
In some people, when it tears that badly, it heals, but does not heal together again. The worst problem this can pose, if it poses one at all, is that the foreskin has to be pulled forward by hand. It no longer slides automatically over the glans when your ***** goes flaccid, or after retraction.
See a urologist, and see if stitches would help.
If the urologist suggests circumcision, laugh, and walk out. I had one who was trying to make some extra bucks, and said he could fix the problem by removing the whole area.
