I have been having trouble with my frenulum for as long as I remember. I am 35 now and uncircumsised and my foreskin is fully retractable. Ever since I started masturbating when I was in my early teens I would sometimes get sore on the frenulum area. It would be like a little cut which would then heal in a matter of 2-3 days. Sometimes it would happen a few times over and then disappear for months at a time. Even when I became sexually active I would go for long periods when everything would be fine and then it would just get sore over and over for a few weeks. The problem has become worse in the last 3 years. I now have to be quite careful when masturbating or having sex to not produce any tears. In fact I'm finding it hard to relax when having penetrative sex and it's affecting my sex life. Even though I have never had any bleeding from these small cuts they are superficial and often 2-3mm in length, horizontally across different parts of the frenulum. They sting just after cumming or cleaning the penis and even though its not unbearable pain it puts me out of action from doing anything for a few days each time. I can see where they have healed which I presume is scar tissue, and it is in these places where it tears time and time again. I went to a doctor who told me i could have it removed. has anyone had the frenulum removed? mine is quite sensitive and would hate to lose that, but this is seriously affecting me. Is there much scarring after such a procedure? Has it improved your sex life if you've had one? I'm interested in hearing people's experiences because there isn't much information out there regarding this procedure.
