I broke my "banjo string" while having intercourse on

Customer Question

Hi I broke my "banjo string" while having intercourse on Monday, swelling and only sore when I get erect, no burning, maybe a slight itch every now and then but I think that's more psychological, no discharge and no burning sensation when I urinate, I visited a clinic and the doctor said if I had a problem I'd be in much worse condition, however is it possible I could have an STD/STI?
JA: How long have you been dealing with the burning? Are you experiencing any other discomfort?
Customer: No other discomfort and no burning, just a slight itch every now and then. Nothing serious or unbearable, I am worried about my swelling though, but I've been told it'll go away. I'm on a course of ibuprofen
JA: Is there anything else the Doctor should know before I connect you? Rest assured that they'll be able to help you.
Customer: No that's about it, just my foreskin is now permanently rolled back whereas it never used to be

I understand your concern. This doesn't sound like an STI.

Can you please share a picture of that?

The girl claims she felt her vagina burn today, but she said her sex life is very active, whereas my last sexual encounter was January and it was just oral.

Alright. The thing you mentioned does not sound like an STI. In STIs there is usually a discharge with nasty rash. This is most likley related to the frenulum damage and will settle on its own within a week if you abstain from sex. You may clean the penis with saline water twice daily and then dry it afterwards. That should help.
