Hi Sam,

You need to stretch it and yes it is going to be a bit sore. Most guys should be able to slide it back by about 16 so it's time.

It may be easier in the shower or in a bath, as the moisture will help soften the tissues a bit. Using your fingers gently work the foreskin, to stretch it. Don't ever force it, it can get stuck and that is an emergency called paraphimosis. This won't happen overnight, but if you work at it consistently each day, in a couple of weeks it should stretch enough to pull back. You will find the glans, the head, very sensitive to touch and it may be painful as well. Eventually, it will become less sensitive.

Take your time, lots of gentle stretching.

Good luck. Let us know how you're progressing.
