This is perhaps the most common around sexual injury. You know when you’re bleeding happened down there after work, or just really, really hurts.
The solution: The reason tearing happens is you’re too dry down there, ie, the solution is quite simple: Make sure you are lubricated enough before you enter. “This may mean going slower during sex, or simply using lubricant,” says Debby Herbenick, Ph.D., research scientist at Indiana University and author of Sex Made Easy.

Then just take a deep breath, relax, and put two fingers to try to remove it. If you can not, call your doctor as soon as possible and you can fish out for you.

The solution: “Start by making sure that your penis is clean when you enter,” says Herbenick. If this means having to go to the bathroom after foreplay, then so be it.
