Frenulum Breve: The Cause of Painful Erection & Painful Sexual Intercourse

Today we are going to talk about the Frenulum Breve. No not that frenulum.

Quite the opposite end of the body in fact.

The penile frenulum is a very thin piece of elastic skin that connects the bottom of the head of the penis to the foreskin.

Frenulum Breve

Men who are circumcised may or may not still have it. Some circumcision techniques leave the frenulum intact while some remove it.

A normal frenulum should be long and stretchable enough to allow the foreskin to slide smoothly down the penile shaft and expose the entire head of the penis also known as the glans penis.

In some men, the penile frenulum is too short. This is a medical problem is called Frenulum Breve. This can lead to some problems.

First of all, when the foreskin is retracted fully, especially during an erection, the short frenulum pulls the glans penis downwards. This can cause pain during sex. This is commonly misdiagnosed as a psychological problem.

Secondly, a tight frenulum is also more likely to tear and break. This can happen over and over again and can be very painful.

A tight frenulum may also be misdiagnosed as phimosis. Phimosis is the inability of the foreskin to retract. This is commonly treated by a full circumcision. However, if the problem is only a short frenulum, a much easier procedure called a Penile Frenulectomy can be done.

A frenulectomy is a simple surgical procedure that can be done in the clinic under local anaesthesia.

After numbing the area, the glans penis is free from the foreskin by dissecting the frenulum away from it. The skin is then stitched back to help with healing.

The stitches are removed after 1 week. The patient is usually fully recovered after one month and can resume normal activities.

If you think you may be suffering from frenulum breve, see our doctors for a consultation.

You can include a picture of your frenulum in your email for us to give you clearer information and a more accurate quote.
