Question: small sexual injury!
|francis - Sun Sep 04, 2005 5:28 pm||
hi. just need a bit of help here please. basically, i was having sex with my girlfriend when my penis came out and one of her (fake) fingernails gave me a small cut on the head on my penis (i wasn't wearing a condom). there was a little blood, and a slight stinging, not very painful. though it has left a red/purple bruise and to be honest my girlfriend feels terrible about it. it has only just happened about half an hour ago. i washed it with cold water and a baby wipe. should i worry or will it be ok?? cheers!

If you weren't wearing a condom, there is a chance of contracting an STD, so unless you are 100% sure your girlfriend has been tested and is clean, you need to get tested.
Other than that, since the skin was broken there is a chance for infection, so you need to keep the area clean and watch for signs of infection such as redness, swelling or discharge. Avoid having sex until the wound heals.
