There is some evidence that people who have a short frenulum could see improvements in premature ejaculation times if the frenulum is removed.
It seems with you there could be a change if you tear your frenulum. It probably depends on how much of the frenulum was damaged and if you had a short frenulum to begin with.
I am unsure of your particular situation for example did you tear your frenulum and notice a difference, are you concerned about premature ejaculation and wondering if removing the frenulum would help etc…
If you were a client at one of our STI clinics I would recommend that you speak to your family doctor about this and that they would probably refer you to an urologist (a specialist).
Premature ejaculation is a common concern for many people and there are a range of different causes and treatments. It’s important to see a health professional with experience in this area so that they can recommend a treatment that would work for you.

Hello, this is quite a common occurrence: you are not alone on this topic. Before we can get to the matter exactly, there are a few questions one must ask themselves.
1) Have I ever reached “climax” on my own/by myself? If yes, see question 2.
If no, this may be a good starting point. If you feel comfortable, it may be a good idea to explore your body and see what feels good for you so that you can tell your partner(s). This is great knowledge to have and share. What stimulates someone to “climax” can also change and evolve over time.
2) How / in what ways, do I stimulate myself to reach “climax”.
3) Am I able to guide my partner, in the same way I stimulate myself, to help me “climax”
It is important for one to know their own body for what feels good and what does not: everyone has their own erogenous zones. By exploring one’s own body, we are better equipped to guide our partner(s) into honing in on those spots and giving us maximum pleasure to “climax” (orgasm). If you’d like to explore some of your options it maybe of benefit speaking to a sexual therapist or counsellor.
It’s really normal to feel scared when thinking that something might be wrong or when facing something unknown, like a first physical exam. The most important thing will be to have a doctor that you can trust and to have a discussion about what symptoms you have been experiencing. That way, together you and the doctor can decide what the best tests and follow up will be for your situation.
If the doctor recommends pap testing, they will need to do a pelvic exam. A pelvic exam is the process by which a healthcare provider looks inside the vagina at the cervix using a speculum. The pap test is just one part of the exam where the doctor or nurse gently collects some cells from the cervix to be looked at under a microscope for any atypical or abnormal characteristics
Your healthcare provider will still be able to perform a pelvic exam even though you have never had intercourse. This exam doesn’t change anything, and just like using tampons doesn’t change or affect your hymen, neither will a pelvic exam.
Scarleteen is a really great sex ed website and they have an awesome article entitled Your First Gynecologist Visit that I would encourage you to check out.

I am unsure if I understand what happened to you so let me know if I got this wrong. It sounds like you may have ripped the frenulum. The frenulum is the elastic band of tissue under the head of the penis (glans penis) and connects to the foreskin.
If you did rip off the frenulum I would recommend that you go to a clinic and have it looked at. Depending on how bad it is they may be able to help you in the clinic or they may send you to a specialist like an urologist.
Let us know if you need help finding a clinic in your area or if you have any further questions or concerns.
I have been able to speak with our doctor’s at our main STI clinic and can provide a brief summary of what they have suggested.
You are correct this type of surgical procedure you are looking at does carry some risk in regard to how it may change your sexual functioning in the future. I have been able to look at some research papers in regard to this and currently they believe 5 to 20 % of people undergoing surgery for stress incontinence or vaginal prolapse can experience a change in sexual functioning (positive or negative).
Given your concern with possible sexual side effects from any surgery our doctors are advising that it would be good to get a second opinion. – You could see another Gynecologist to see if they have any other treatment suggestions. – They also suggested that it would be good to explore Physiotherapy again. I have included a link to a local Physiotherapy and Pelvic Floor Clinic. This is a local clinic in the Vancouver area that uses Biofeedback to help people strengthen their pelvic floor.

The age at which people have sex is different for every individual.
There are a few different things to consider when answering your question:
Youth age 12 can have sex with other youth age 12-14
Youth age 13 can have sex with other youth age 13-15
Youth age 14 can have sex with other youth age 14-18
Youth age 15 can have sex with other youth age 15-19
Youth age 16 can have sex with others age 14 or older, so long as their sexual partners are NOT in a position of power over the 16-year old (for example: teachers, coaches, family members, care takers etc.)
Youth age 17 can have sex with others age 15 or older, so long as their sexual partners are NOT in a position of power over the 16-year old (for example: teachers, coaches, family members, care takers etc.)
Youth age 18 can have sex with others age 15 or older.
However, age is not the only factor when it comes to having sex. Understanding consent and relationships are critical as well!
Hi there, it sounds like there was a tear of part of the foreskin. Tears commonly happen with the frenulum. The frenulum is the stretchy band of skin that attaches the foreskin to the underside of the shaft of the penis. This area is very sensitive and bleeds easily when torn. Tears can happen to any man. To help heal the tear, keep the area clean and dry. Most often, the tear heals on its own without problems. You can use an antibiotic cream, but it is often not needed. Also, do see your healthcare provider right away if it does not seem to be healing and/or you have signs of infection (redness, pain, pus). It is common to tear the frenulum during masturbation and sexual intercourse. If the area tears over and over, scar tissue can form making the frenulum less stretchy. This in turn makes it more likely to tear again. To prevent tearing, you may have to take it slowly with masturbation and intercourse. Use a good lube to lower the chances of tearing. Also, using condoms is a good idea to protect the area until it is healed. You can post a comment to let us know if this answers your question or ask another question if you need more info.

Learning about self-pleasure is important. Here are a few tips about masturbating with your fingers.
It is always a good idea to wash your hands before touching your (or other people’s) genitals, the same way you would wash your hands before eating.
Using your fingers for penetration does not usually hurt. You can trim your nails if they feel too sharp or long.
Using some lubricant is also a good idea for fingering. Although most people produce some of their own sexual fluids, using lubricant enhances genital sensation and makes sure that the delicate genital skin is not pulled or pinched. To learn more about lubricants, click here.
We do not see people getting infections from fingering, although it would only be possible if you had someone else’s sexual fluids on your hands and then fingered yourself.
