Hello doctor,

My husband and I have been having sex using a condom and it has been fine. Now we want to conceive and we are having sex without a condom and he experiences pain in his penis which causes him to lose his erection. He also experienced a cut in his penis area which caused bleeding that stopped quickly. Please suggest what to do.

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

Relax and do not worry.

Your husband may have phimosis or short frenulum.

Is the skin over the penis head going behind the head smoothly or is it tight?

If possible, pull the skin and send me images so that I can see and suggest.

This may also be possible if lubrication of vagina is less causing dryness.

Thanks.

Thank you doctor,

I believe lubrication was all right. What is the solution for skin being tight over the penis (preferably non-surgical procedures)? We are concerned that this might happen repeatedly.

Hello,

Welcome back to icliniq.com.

For tight skin, treatment depends on severity. I believe it is more severe as you have repeated bleeding.

If it is less severe or mildly tight, then you can daily stretch the skin by pulling it backward after applying Lignocaine jelly or coconut oil. Gradually, it will dilate.

If it is severe, you will have to go for circumcision (surgical option).

If possible, see a urologist so that he can examine you physically and guide you properly.
