Put superglue on the joint. Is this before, or after pairing him with the female?

How did it happen ??? If it has bitten it off i am sure that they stop the bleeding pretty much by themselves so Hope it stops ooooorrrrrr if you are real brave put a tiny blob of superglue on it. Good luck

well it was during he bolted out of the top of the exoterra when she slapped him, it was faster than i could react, i tried to catch him but failed, i was not sure wether it was poo or a leecage when i put him in the pot after closer inspection it was no longer "bleeding", i have now put him in an ICU so he can gain lost fluid

I'd give up on trying those two then mate. If that was the result, then she simply doesn't like him. That's the way it goes with spider breeding I'm afraid.

I've always found that smaller males tend to be attacked alot less than larger ones. If he's falling off things, he could be old, or he could simply be dehydrated.

his abdomen is fairly small and out of shape, so i think he is old, i had him in a tank with a large waterbowl so i dont think hes dehydrated, if he is hes in an icu now and should hopefully recover

Not always straight away. Sometimes takes a few tries, but if the female doesn't like the male, she'll go for him quite quickly.
