I tore my frenulum and started to bleed, do I need stitches?

My girlfriend and me were having sex when I noticed that my frenulum tore and I started to bleed. It stopped a few minutes later. Does my penis need stitches?

You stopped bleeding quickly so it will probably heal by itself. No you won’t need stitches. Keep the area clean. Use antibiotic ointment. Avoid sexual intercourse for 4 to 5 weeks. In the future, use a lubricant.
