I have cuts tears on my frenulum from sex when I was drunk, what does it mean? Help

5-6 drinks = a binge: For a male. No mouth dam + activity vigorous enough to tear your frenulum = time to test for sti's. You have to be tested for HIV now & in 6 months to know you're safe. You're an underage drinker, can't remember how you got hurt & are remorseful. See http://www. Addictionsandrecovery. Org/addiction-self-test. Htm. Seek help from a mental health professional. I'm not scolding; I want you to be safe. ...Read more

This will heal very quickly if you avoid further injury. ...Read more

I got a vaginal tear on perineum from rough sex. Now the scab fell off and I still have a tear in the skin. Will it heal on its own or need stitches?

I got a vaginal tear on perineum from rough sex. Now the scab fell off and I still have a tear in the skin. Will it heal on its own or need stitches?

You should try to avoid any intercourse or penetrating vaginal activity. Try to keep the area clean (but with something like gentle soap and water with limited scrubbing). If its starts becoming painful, red or with discharge seek a formal evaluation. ...Read more
