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

When soft my foreskin goes back n forth no bother. When erect it doesn't retract as easily and tends to stick behind the head until I go soft again???

Dr. James Lin Dr. Lin

That is normal...: What described about your foreskin could be just normal & unique for you. A direct look at by experienced eyes like urologists', will surely answer your question. Nevertheless, without a look at, it may represent a long yet marginally tight opening of the foreskin.

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

Not necessarily: If your foreskin is difficult to retract (phimotic) it might cause some constriction near the end of the penis with an erection if the foreskin is in a retracted position.
