hi, my bf and i had sex yesterday and within one minute of intercourse, he felt a sharp pain and realised that his frenulum tore.
it bled a lot and it was so scary! i'm just wondering how long will it take for it to heal completely, before we engage in any intercourse again and what can we apply in the meanwhile for it to be less painful/sore?
i'd appreciate your help as this is the first time it's happened in 2 years and it was really pretty scary for both of us!
You should immediately wash the region and apply a disinfectant as you would do with any wound. After that you should disinfect regularly until healing, and of course exercise careful hygiene. If these measures do not seem effective in a couple of days (it depends on the gravity if the injury), you should seek medical assistance. If they do wok, you have still to be patient with this. It will take more than two weeks for complete recovery to the point that sex is safe again. The method of "trial and error" will show when/if your boyfriend will be ready again.
