Dr. Shahzad MD :

Hi there. Thank you for your question. I will be helping you out with your queries

Dr. Shahzad MD :

welcome

Dr. Shahzad MD :

So your frenulum of penis is broken?

Customer: Yes
Dr. Shahzad MD :

is it still bleeding?

Customer: No unless I pull my foreskin all the way back then yes it does black blood then fresh blood
Dr. Shahzad MD :

I am sending an image, I would like you to tell me if this is the area that is broken:

Customer: Can't open. I'm on a iPad device
Dr. Shahzad MD :

Ok I understand

Dr. Shahzad MD :

This will most likely heal itself in due course of time, however after healing it will most likely lead to a shorter frenulum and this can happen again.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

So in other words there are high chances of recurrence of this problem unless you have a circumcision.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

So I would suggest that you should contact a urologist or be referred to one so that you have this taken care of once and for all.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

There is nothing to be embarrassed about at all.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

This is not an uncommon problem

Customer: Ok looks like its a trip to the doctors tomorrow then
Dr. Shahzad MD :

Yes

Dr. Shahzad MD :

that is the best thing to do.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Better to be safe rather than sorry and get this taken care of once and for all.

Customer: Thank you for your help
