What do I do if I remove the gauze and there’s bleeding?

  • To stop the bleeding, grasp the penis between your thumb and two fingers and apply pressure to the penis for no less than 2-3 minutes. Use the same pressure you would use to stop a cut on a finger from bleeding.
  • Inspect the area for continued bleeding. Repeat the pressure if necessary.
  • If you have applied pressure twice, and the penis is still bleeding, call our office.
    What do I do if after the gauze falls off or is removed, there is still a bridge of skin attached to the head of the penis? Please call our office to book an appointment.
