Couldn't find what you looking for?

TRY OUR SEARCH!

I'm a 20 year old male and I have never been able to fully retract my foreskin. I can get about halfway before what looks like a strip of skin on the bottom of the head connected to the foreskin stops me. Over the past few months I have been attempting to stretch it slightly further each time I masturbate (about once every two days) but this instead resulted in the strip of skin becoming sore. Does this have a name and how would I go about fixing it? Is it something that can be fixed?

Hey there it's difficult to say without seeing your foreskin but it sounds like you have what's called a frenulum Breve or short frenulum. Sometimes stretching can help but that usually leads to tearing  or making the foreskin sore .i You can have what's called a frenulumotomy or frenulumectomy where the frenulum is cut or removed

Thanks mate. I googled short frenulum and that is exactly what I have. I take it for the frenulumotomy/frenulumectomy I'd have to go through my GP for that?

Yup and they would refer you to general surgery or urology
