Couldn't find what you looking for?


hi, my boyfreinds foreskin always rolls back when we try to have sex, its really really painful for him and last time it happened it took a long time and a lot of pain for him to pull it back. is it meant to roll back (if that's the right way to put it..i have no idea of these things!) during sex? and does anybody else have the same problem? what do u do? i just want to know if its normal! i'm really worried about him because he gets really down about it and i think it sort of traumatises him (coz its so painful) we wer both virgins so neither of us really know wether its meant to happen. any advice would be very appreciated thanks

Hey there, minidriver are you still checking this forum?

If you reply I will give you my answer. I had a similar problem when I first began having intercourse.


Hi Minidriver90:

Paraphimosis is the name of the condition of a retracted foreskin that is stuck behind the glans penis (head) of the penis and will not go forward. One can read about paraphimosis on the Internet.

If the foreskin is tight enough it can cut off blood circulation to the head and cause edema (swelling due to fluid accumulation). Paraphimosis should be promptly reduced when it occurs. Paraphimosis may be reduced by squeezing the head of the penis really hard to force the blood to leave the head. This will temporarily reduce the size of the head at which time the foreskin may be brought forward.

If attempts to reduce the paraphimosis are unsuccessful, then one should go to the emergency room of a nearby hospital. It is not necessary or advisable to be circumcised although some old-fashioned doctors are likely to recommend it.

You should stretch your foreskin to make it wider so that it does not get stuck again.

When your penis is erect, gently pull your foreskin back against the head of the penis. As the head attempts to pass through the foreskin it will stretch the skin a little. Do this every day and in a few weeks or months your foreskin will widen and you will be able to retract your foreskin. Do NOT force retraction. Do NOT cause yourself pain.

It works by tissue expansion. Stretching skin induces “mitosis” which is a word that means “division of cells”. New skin cells are formed and the skin expands but it takes some time. The increase in size is permanent. Be patient and give mitosis time to work.

The important thing is to put the skin under tension every day so that it will grow wider.
