bloody mess

For the past week my boyfriend and I have gotten really close to touching each other when we notice blood coming from him-close to his head of his penis. He is uncircumsized, which I don't know if this is a common problem? Is it? The blood keeps coming and I have no clue why it's coming and it's seriously FRUSTERATING. We'll both get really excited and then we'll look down and see that he's bleeding. He said that it's because the skin got pulled a weird way and just caused him to get cut. Does this happen often to uncircumsized guys? I've never been with a guy that is uncircumsized and I don't know the different maintence, if there is. Someone, PLEASE, fill me in!

Re: bloody mess

Is it from the frenulum, the attachment under the glans,near the meatus (pee hole)? That does tear now and then in intact males. If that's the problem I'm afraid he needs to abstain from all sexual activity for a month or two until it heals up. Sometimes a doctor puts in a stich to help it heal but don't let a doctor persuade him he needs to be circumcised. That is a last resort treatment. A frenuloplasty may be a better option if the frenulum is too short. It is a simple operation that doesn't remove any tissue and lengthens the frenulum. Elsewhere on the foreskin tears are less common and are usually due to a yeast or fungus infection. Yeast or fungal infections can be cleared up with some over-the-counter cream suitable for women's genitals. Sometimes they are caused by the use of soap. Some men can use soap fine but in others it upsets the natural balance. Rinsing with plain water instead will keep things clean. Most intact males have few if any problems with their foreskin but a few do and we tend to hear about them on sites like this.

Re: bloody mess

The frenulum tearing is a common problem on uncircumcised males. He'll have to abstain from sex for a few months and it probably will get better. Due to how much it is bleeding I would definitely have him see a urologist for a professional opinion.

Re: bloody mess

It's true that you have to wait until the frenulum is fully healed, no sex, no masturbation. Otherwise, it will just tear again. It doesn't take two months, more like a week or two.
