Broken frenulum clitoridis

Hello, I'm going mad about a "sexual accident" that happened to my girlfriend.
A couple days ago, I was rubbing her clitoris as usual when suddenly something broke up down there. She felt a lot of pain and lost some blood. At the time, I thought I could have scratched something with my nail (even if I don't have long nails at all) so I just made sure she disinfect the wound.
The day after, we realized that the frenulum of her clitoris was torn and her "sensitivity" was poor.
I feel really scared and sorry, I mean, none of us even imagine that women had a frenulum, we had to check some anatomy pictures to get a clue about this.
We're obviously going to see a gynecologist as soon as possible, but I have no confidence at all about the result: I don't see how she can get her sensitivity back.
Does anyone have ever experienced any situation like this?

Re: Broken frenulum clitoridis

I just found your question randomly while I was searching for something else. I've never heard of this happening in a girl, but when a man tears his frenulum it takes 6-8 WEEKS to heal. The frenulum clitoridis is smaller, so maybe it takes less time, but it's going to take a while. Do not touch it at all for at least 4 weeks--probably 6. It has to heal. If it is repeatedly injured it can form a big scar and loose sensitivity permanently to the scar. She definitely wants to see a GYN for real advice and to be sure it's ok and healing properly and everything.
