    I was having dry sex with a guy yesterday (I was down to my pants, he was in jeans still) when he just started bleeding everywhere. He bled for a good few hours after he started and I know some of the blood went through my pants.
    Is this an STD? What else could have been the cause?!
    What should I do? Should I go to the GUM clinic and explain what happened and ask to be tested or is there nothing to worry about?

    He probably broke or tore his foreskin if he was somewhat pulling back too hard, which he probably was moreso.

    Most likely he just tore his banjo string or something.

    Do I need a trip to the Dr/Gum clinic to get tested for STDs/HIV?
    I know the guy well, he has had unprotected sex (ie without a condom) but only with people he knows well.
    I hope I'm just overracting and there's nothing actually to worry about.

    If you're sexually active and have never had STD tests before it's often a good idea to go anyway. I doubt that you'll have caught anything but it seems to me to be a good reason to go and get checked out.

    More to the point, is he okay?!

    Go if it puts your mind at ease. You should be okay, though. But go anyway. I'm not sure how it went from him in jeans to through 2-3 layers of clothes though!

    yep definatly sounds like the banjo has gone, my friend had this and did bleed for a fair while

    The frenulum is a strip of skin which attaches the foreskin to the shaft of the penis on the undersurface of the glans. This can be torn during sexual intercourse, particularly if it is a bit tight. This can lead to bleeding which can be a bit alarming!

    The tear usually heals naturally and you just need to keep it clean. An antibiotic cream may be necessary.

    Sometimes the tear heals but with the formation of scar tissue causing a painful tethering effect, especially in the erect state. If this occurs surgical intervention may be necessary.

    A complete tear of the frenulum usually settles on its own. If scarring occurs, or if the tear is incomplete and the frenulum remains tight causing discomfort during sex, a surgical procedure called frenuloplasty might be indicated. During this operation, the surgeon essentially lengthens the frenulum to allow greater freedom of movement. This eliminates the discomfort during intercourse and reduces the chance of any further tears.

    Oh and regarding the STD you may aswell put your mind at rest and go otherwise you will be worrying about it

    If he bled from his urethra, then that is a medical emergency and he NEEDS to be in hospital :eek:

    If not, no worries but ouch.
