Couldn't find what you looking for?

TRY OUR SEARCH!

Hello,

I am 19 and I can't retract my foreskin more than 1/2 the way down the head of the penis. During intercourse it feels like something is going to tear/rip which is very painful and makes sex impossible.

Is there anything I can do to fix this?

Many thanks,
Calum.

Hi Calum,

Stretching is usually the way to go in these cases. You've got a head start as you can already get it half way down.

I found a good technique is to pull the foreskin back as far as you can before feeling any pain, and then return it. Start again, but this time try to go a little bit further. Repeat as long as you can be bothered. Its usually easier to do this in the bath or the shower as it softens the skin.

You should be careful though to not force your foreskin anywhere. There is a chance that it could get trapped behind the glans, paraphimosis. If this happens you should squeeze your glans and pull the foreskin back into place before swelling makes it impossible and a trip to A&E is required. Not something to worry about, just something to be aware of; if your careful and don't force it anywhere you should be ok.


Hope I've helped a little. Let us know if I've missed anything or if you've got any more questions :-)

Hi Bio

Sorry I didn't realise you didn't use the term over there, I'll have to stop using it.


A&E stands for the Accident & Emergency department of a hospital, so I would assume the equivalent over there is the emergency room.
