Short frenulum


The frenulum is a thin strip of tissue that connects the glans (head of the penis) to the skin of the foreskin. In some cases, the frenulum can be short or tight, causing a condition known as short frenulum.


  • Pain during erection: A short frenulum can cause pain or discomfort during erection due to the tension and limited movement of the foreskin.
  • Difficulty in retracting the foreskin: A short frenulum can make it difficult or painful to fully retract the foreskin, thus limiting the exposure of the glans.
  • Bleeding: In some cases, a short frenulum can cause bleeding during sexual intercourse or other activities that involve stretching of the frenulum.


To determine the most appropriate treatment for a short frenulum, it is advised to schedule an appointment with Professor Christian Gozzi for a specialist consultation.
