How soon can I have sex after adult circumcision?

Dr. Reed, How soon can I have sex after adult circumcision?  Phil

Dear Phil,  Think this way.  It takes an incision about 7 to 8 weeks to regain full tensile strength.  You just don’t want an adult circumcision, you want a cosmetic adult circumcision that hopefully when heals looks like a newborn circ.  You could probably have very gentle masturbatory sex about 5 to 6 weeks after.  Yes, you will experience nocturnal erections and for that reason I do not propose an ultra-tight circumcision.  Please look at some before and after pictures of adult circumcision posted on our web-site adult-male-circumcision.com/photographic-examples

Yes, you do have a choice of circumcision styles.  The options are remove or do not remove the frenulum, cut low medium or high, tight moderate or loose, cut with inner skin equidistant all the way around (normal) or perpendicular to the shaft.
