When my penis is in normal size foreskin is easily pulldown but when penis enlarges foreskin becomes tight?

When my penis is in normal size foreskin is easily pulldown but when penis enlarges foreskin becomes tight?

It's normal.: The foreskin on an uncircumcised male typically covers the head of the penis when there is no erection. With an erection the penis grows in length and girth, and the foreskin "retracts" and gets tight, covering only the base of the penis and leaving the head uncovered. You're okay, that's the design plan! ...Read more

I have phimosis and tear my foreskin by accident is it normal for the foreskin to shrink again? How soon can I resume stretching?

I have phimosis and tear my foreskin by accident is it normal for the foreskin to shrink again? How soon can I resume stretching?

Normal: Torn area will contract ; scar causing shrinkage. You probably require prescription strength steroid cream like Betamethasone or kenalog (triamcinolone) so that foreskin can loosen. Am not a believer in stretching foreskin by itself to correct phimosis. Other alternative is either a preputioplasty, if you wish to keep foreskin, or circumcision. ...Read more

When the penis enlarges, is it normal for the foreskin to retract? I have never had this until the last couple of years and has been such a worry

Normal.: Boys usually are born with a non-retractile foreskin. The foreskin gradually becomes retractable over a variable period of time ranging from birth to 18 years or more. There is no “right” age for the foreskin to become retractable, and in some men, it never does. Either way, nothing to worry about. ...Read more

Is it normal for penis foreskin when pulled back while dry humping with erection to be very sensitive and painful?

May need reduction: If the foreskin of an uncircumcised penis gets pulled back and cannot be reduced (meaning returned to its normal position covering the head of the penis), this can be a problem. Often the foreskin will swell and not be reducible. This is called a paraphimosis. If this is the case, and you cannot reduce it with gentle pressure, you may want to be evaluated by your physician who can do so. ...Read more

Please advise if it's normal to have nonretracting foreskin?

Yes, . ..: Redundant long foreskin is okay as long as not posing difficulty in local hygiene or risk of recurrent inflammation, as well, not hurting at intercourse. In fact, some studies seemed suggesting better sexual satisfaction without circumcision. So, you judge.

My foreskin retracts only halfway when erected. I can manually pull it down though without difficulty. Is it normal?

My foreskin retracts only halfway when erected. I can manually pull it down though without difficulty. Is it normal?

Phimosis: There are a number of conditions of the foreskin that can cause a progressive narrowing of the foreskin with more difficulty retracting it (phimosis), such as infections, trauma, inflammatory conditions such as lichen sclerosus. The danger is if the foreskin is retracted forcibly and stays behind the glans, it may decrease blood supply to the glans. Please see your urologist for treatment. ...Read more

I am 66 years old. My foreskin has recently become tighter and more difficult to pull back. Is this a normal sign of ageing or should I be concerned?

Be concerned.: This is called phimosis. Normally, the foreskin should always be comfortably retractable over the head of the penis. There may be an infection that has caused this skin to contract - it may be painful or impossible to retract the foreskin if you ignore it. Circumcision would be the worst-case scenario. See your family practitioner for an evaluation and treatment. ...Read more

Why doesn't my foreskin return to its normal state after an erection?

Why doesn't my foreskin return to its normal state after an erection?

May have...: A marginally tight long foreskin, which may stay retracted in some after erection. So, make sure to pull the foreskin down after erection so to prevent so-called paraphimosis. However, it is still hard to tell exactly what you have without a direct look. To sort all things out correctly, follow instructions in articles listed in http://www. Formefirst. Com/onDealSickness.

My foreskin is attached to my bellend so I can't pull it back. Is this normal?

No it's phimosis: Paraphimosis is when a tight scarred foreskin (phimosis) has been pulled back or retracted over the head of the penis (glans) and is so tight that it can not be reduced or returned to its natural position covering the glans. This causes more pressure and swelling of the glans, making paraphimosis dangerous. Phimosis is inconvenient, paraphimosis is an emergency. You have phimosis. ...Read more

Hi I am worried as I have retracted my foreskin for the first time and it is stuck behind my head is this normal for the first time?

Hi I am worried as I have retracted my foreskin for the first time and it is stuck behind my head is this normal for the first time?

Please be seen.: The foreskin should not get stuck behind the head of the penis. If this happens, this could lead to a dangerous situation called paraphimosis and the constriction of the head of the penis can be damaging. Please try to replace the forskin immeditately, and go to the emergency room if you cannot do so! After it is replaced, see a urologist to try to address the phimosis. ...Read more

I just recently pulled the foreskin back and it is currently stuck behind the head and won't go back to its normal position. I've tried pushing it back forward but it won't budge. Is this an emergency?

Somewhat: There may be a problem called phimosis which prevents normal retraction of the foreskin, but if it gets stuck behind the glans penis it should be addressed by a physician or a urologist. If applying cold applications to the penis doesn't allow you to bring the foreskin over the glans to its normal position, head to the hospital emergency room to avoid complications. ...Read more

I feel stinging when I get an erection after my foreskin's been retracted. Is this normal?

Here are some. ..: Feeling stinging in foreskin at erection suggests heightened sensation by possible local inflammation from various causes or tightness from over-stretching tight foreskin after "too much" shortening at circumcision or simply from still existing long/tight foreskin with balanoposthitis, etc. So, have urologist take a look so to define what is going on in your penis.
