Couldn't find what you looking for?


I am an uncircumcised male nd i was wondering if my foreskin is supposed to retract past the head when errect because mine only goes a little past the head when errect. Is this normal and will it hurt if i had sex because i cant retract it fully.


Hi try and retract it when soft in the bath first , then if you are masturbating please use Lube and take it back as far as it can do , Keep on doing that to stretch the foreskin lightly , Try K Y Jelly as it is water based , Take care , x



It sounds like you might have a short frenulum that is preventing complete retraction.

That piece of skin at the bottom of the glans is called the frenulum. It is normal and it is supposed to be there. The frenulum serves to limit the rearward travel of the foreskin. The frenulum has a high level of sensation.

If your foreskin bunches up behind the head when you retract you most likely have a short frenulum (frenulum breve). Test it by pulling back on the foreskin. If the head of your penis bends down when you pull back your foreskin, you have frenulum breve.

You can stretch the frenulum manually just like you do your foreskin. That is the best course of action if the frenulum is too short to permit your foreskin to retract. Search the Internet for:

“How to Fix Phimosis and Tight Foreskins, Solutions That Work”

and you will find the information you need.

There also is a minor operation to relieve the frenulum, called frenuloplasty and another called frenectomy. One of these might be necessary, if the stretching does not work. Urologists do this.

Don’t let anyone sell you a circumcision. Circumcision is NOT necessary to treat this condition and is very harmful.
