Please rinse the area with some streile saline no preservatives. Once that is done you can use some sugar and moisten it with cool water and put on a guaze pad and apply the sugar paste to the turtles Penis. Hold there for 15 mins. The cool sugar paste will help stop any bleeding and also help shrink the swelling and should help the turtle retract the penis. If it does not apply some Neosporin and drydock the turtle for the night. If you need a Herp Vet I can locate some for you with a State.
