Hi,Last night I ripped my frenulum, it was bleeding a lot for a long long time, so much so that I thought I was going to pass out. I was very worried so I went to A & E today, and the doctor reassured me it would be ok, however I was quite shy, and extremely embarrassed as the doctor was female, and I couldnt bring myself to ask any of the questions I had, even though she was extremely nice about it, and tried to keep me from being embarrassed.After doing a lot of research about it online I have even more questions, and any advice would be greatly appreciated. I was just told to let it heal naturally and keep it clean to avoid any infections...and avoid any type of intercourse for around 6 weeks. However a number of people online seem to have been given antibiotics, or antibiotic cream, and in some cases had a stitch put in?? also when it heals will it look any different??I know the extent of the tear would determine this, but i dont know if mine is just a tear, or if its completely detached now?? Also when it heals, will there be any effect on my future performance, and since its happened once, is this going the be a common reoccurence.....because i dont think i could handle that!!It happened because my partner slipped and hit my penis and crotch, and where my crotch got hit is still very very sore, almost 24 hours later (i didnt mention that to the doc, because i didnt think anything of it, but considering its been almost a day im getting quite worried?)As I said any advice would be greatly appreciated?
