I am 16 and have had a tight foreskin were it can not be pulled back over much of the head of the penis. I would consider the severity of it to be bad as it does not pull back much at all. As i really want it to be pulled back i attempted to pull it back and it has gotten the foreskin trapped in some way and i need help on how to fix it, please help i am really worried and am embarrassed to visit a doctor.
It's normal for your foreskin to not retract until 16 or so.
But, if you've pulled it back and it is "stuck" then you really DO need to see your doctor. You likely have paraphimosis. When you pulled the foreskin back it got stuck. Now it is likely cutting off circulation to the penis - no blood flow to the tissues. It can lead to amputation of part or all of your penis.
Man up, tell your folks, and get to the ER. Yes, it REALLY IS a medical emergency.
Don't be embarrassed JB, the doctors have seen it all. Really, you do need to fix this VERY SOON.
it dosent seem like its stopping bllod flow but im scared now i will try to pluck up the courage and thanks for the advice
i can pull the foreskin over the head a bit but it goes back a little bit, im quite sure the blood flow is still good
OK, if you can pull the foreskin back then it should be OK. It might be a bit swollen.
Never try to force the foreskin back. Instead, work on stretching it. You can either use your fingers to spread the opening OR you can get an erection and pull down on the shaft skin so that the glans, the head, spreads the opening.
The more you do it the sooner it should be able to retract easily.
You'll find under the foreskin to be very sensitive, maybe even painful, to touch. This is normal. As you expose the head more it will become less sensitive.
You DO want your foreskin to move easily JB. Work on stretching it.
so is it unlikely that i have to go to the doctors and if i do have paraphimosis how long does it take before i will notice and how do i vote for your for the good advice
Correct, if you can get it back now you don't have paraphimosis but you probably have phimosis.
The more you stretch the faster you'd notice results. Do it in the shower too, the warm water can help soften the skin so you can stretch it easier.
Just click the thumbs up. Thank you JB.
