When Can Intercourse After Laser Circumcision?
I want to ask after laser circumcision, how many days can have sex?
Circumcision or circumcision is the act of removing part of the prepuce covering the glans part of the penis (the tip of the penis). Benefits of circumcision include:
It's easier to clean the penis
Reducing the risk of urinary tract infections
Reducing the risk of penile cancer
Reducing the risk of cervical cancer in couples
Circumcision is generally done using local anesthesia, but can also use total anesthesia (unconscious patient). Laser circumcision has relatively little bleeding advantage, and the wound dries faster (7-10 days). After the circumcision procedure the penis is usually closed using a bandage and the patient is recommended to use special underwear or loose pants. During the first 2-3 days the penis may be slightly swollen. In addition, doctors also prescribe painkillers and antibiotics to prevent infection. The danger sign that requires the patient to immediately return to the doctor is bleeding out a lot from wounds, fever, redness and swelling of the penis that increases, and can not urinate within 12 hours after circumcision.
Sexual intercourse is recommended after 4 weeks. The World Health Organization even recommends sexual intercourse after circumcision after> 42 days (6 weeks). This figure was obtained from studies that sexual intercourse carried out before 4-6 weeks, it will increase the risk of contracting sexually transmitted diseases when having sex is risky, due to the inflammation and microbial processes in the penis. In addition, some patients also complain of pain when an erection occurs and when the wound is rubbed before 4 weeks.
Sexual intercourse can be done faster than this time if the doctor's examination results really healed wound. Some doctors recommend using a condom during sexual intercourse for up to 6 weeks after the procedure. Thus the explanation from me, hopefully useful.
