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?

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 took two male enhancement pills and now the foreskin is really swollen that the head cannot come out. Its been like this for 3 weeks? What should I do?

Should see doc now..: It is likely that you are having trouble with a condition called paraphimosis--swollen foreskin has caused tightening and thus trapping the glan.

One's doctor can help if a guy did not get his foreskin to loosen during puberty. ...Read more
