Expert:  Dr. Salar replied 8 years ago.
this is a common site of tear after trauma from sex .. which usually repairs on its own. either you need to be gentle during sex or use heavy lubrication such as Vaseline during the act. please note that Vaseline can cause tear of the condom. if it continues or doesn't heal then you would need to see a urologist who can apply stitches which is a usual procedure.
