Foreskin problems/curved penis? Topic: Problem solving in health it
June 16, 2019 / By Clemmie
Question: My foreskin is attached at different angles on either side and it causes it to not fold back properly. It also causes curvature when erect. I'm wondering if anyone has any suggestions as to how I might solve one or both of these problems without resorting to circumcision. Thanks My foreskin is attached at different angles on either side and it causes it to not fold back properly. It also causes curvature when erect. I'm wondering if anyone has any suggestions as to how I might solve one or both of these problems without resorting to circumcision. Thanks - In response to first answer, it's not by the head but rather further down the fold itself.on one side it come away nicely when the other side seems to be off centre if I'm making sense?

It is perfectly normal NOT to be able to retract your foreskin when you are a child. When you are an infant the foreskin is actually attached to the glans (head) of your penis and naturally detaches itself normally somewhere between the age of 5 and 10. Smegma is formed as the foreskin adhesions break down. As well as being attached to the glans of the penis the foreskin of a child can also be naturally ‘tight’. In other words not all boys have a foreskin that is loose and easily retractable even when it has detached from the glans. It is somewhat normal therefore for the foreskin to require some stretching before it is easily retractable and an inability to retract the foreskin in children does not necessarily indicate a ‘problem’. The foreskin is stretched ‘naturally’ when the penis becomes erect or the boy himself manually retracts the foreskin to urinate, wash or masturbate. Check out the pics in the link below which shows how a foreskin retracts once detached from the glans and the foreskin is sufficiently loose. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Image:A_For... About 5% of males cannot retract their foreskin by the age of 17. Even when the foreskin is fully retractable there should still be a strip of skin called the 'frenulum' attached underneath... this never detaches. See the following link. http://www.foreskin.org/frenulum.htm If it is the frenulum that is stopping your foreskin from pulling back or it seems to be too short you could have a condition known as a ‘frenulum breve’. See these links http://www.circumstitions.com/Images/Glo... http://www.london-urology.co.uk/frenuloplasty.htm If the foreskin is detached from the glans of your penis but is not fully retractable because the ‘hole’ in your foreskin is too small to allow the glans to come out AND the foreskin does not appear to be stretching over time you may have a condition known as ‘Phimosis’. Phimosis is not uncommon and often resolves itself through puberty as the normal practice of masturbation stretches the foreskin to the point where it retracts fully. To stretch your foreskin simply try to retract it a little more each time you shower, urinate or masturbate. Otherwise you can do stretching exercises as describe in the links below. You should NEVER force a tight foreskin back when you are erect or hold it back prior to becoming erect. Forcing or holding the foreskin back can hurt and cause injury including ‘Paraphimosis’ where the tight foreskin restricts blood flow to the glans. If your foreskin is very tight, is not stretching or loosening over time, or still feels firmly attached to the head of your penis you should see a doctor. A doctor can prescribe steroid creams which assist with the stretching process. In extreme cases of phimosis circumcision might be recommended but this is usually a last resort.

You can stretch it or use a cream, thanks to modern medicine. I once had this and it hasn't been a problem ever since. I posted the following on another question, but it should be the same information you need: Some may say that circumcision will fix it, but circumcision's risks include reduction in sensitivity and pleasure, and making masturbation more difficult according to studies (including a few new ones from a few months ago). Oddly enough that's how it was promoted in the USA since masturbation was bad, haha. There's a reason why the USA is the last remaining advanced nation still doing it, and even so, it's getting a lot less popular (it's now as low as 14% in some states). Save that as a last resort, as you're doing. That's only one of the few risks, there's more listed here, in addition to the studies and statistics: http://forums.govteen.com/showpost.php?p... I was the same when I was younger, and now it slides fine with no problems whatsoever. Just pull back your foreskin when you shower the most you can without forcing it, and rub the head. That should encourage it to separate from the head. This is probably all you have to do, since this is common especially with teens. You just haven't 'used' it enough, as in masturbation and washing it. The same goes for sensitivity; the more your rub it the less sensitive it'll get (start using water when you shower then rub a little more each day). And if its rather tight, you can get a cream that works in almost 95% of cases. It's 0.05% betamethasone or betamethasone dipropionate. And unlike circumcision it is very cheap ($12 in the USA), painless, and you don't risk decreasing sensitivity/pleasure and making masturbation more difficult. http://www.scielo.br/scielo.php?pid=S167... http://www.drugstore.com/pharmacy/prices... Try that cream. It works. Doctors often just mention circumcision since its a surgery that brings a lot of money to them, especially in the USA. If you have questions, e-mail me from my profile since I've gone through this. I'll be happy to answer any questions.

You need to start doing some foreskin stretching exercises. They really help loosen things up down there. Just make sure you use a penis skin moisturizer, because the stretches will tax and strain the skin which can lead to discomfort if it is not protected. Man1 Man Oil is a good creme. Check it out.

Sometimes you can hurt yourself by forcing the foreskin to do something it may not want to do. Millions of men in the world do not retract their foreskins at all, either because they are tight or simply because they do not need to. It is not an essential practice, everything works just as well without pulling it back, so leave it alone.

Is it just stuck around the part of the rim of the head? I had this when I was about 13 or so, and it eventually came away on it's own. When you are very young, the foreskin adheres to the glans to protect it, and it generally loosens of prior to puberty. Most penises have some sort of curve, so that shouldn't be a problem, mine is curved, and my wife loves it. Hope this helps

Your foreskin should only be attached to your head at one place. I would talk to a doctor and tell him you just don't want to be circumcised. Also you could do a frenulplasty were they just cut the frenulum and that fixes the whoel problem. (sounds like you have a frenulum breve) I don't understand what you are talking about. Look up frenulum breve and see if that is it. Talk to a doctor, just don't let him talk you into a circumcision if you don't want it. -Connor

Love Originally Answered: I m a 15 year old boy this year. and i have some problems retracting my foreskin?
This is common among young teens, that's because the foreskin is attached to the head when you're young to prevent the head from getting dirty. Usually it separates before puberty, but in your case you have to give it a little help. Now that you probably masturbate and pull it back to wash under it (only takes about less than 10 seconds) it'll start sliding back more and more. If you have a tight foreskin, you can actually stretch it like I did when you shower. It only took a few weeks and it hasn't given me a single problem ever since. =) Work on getting it less tight. Here's what you do. When you shower and and you're soaping up your body, pull the foreskin back the most you can without forcing it, and then wash the head with the other hand. If you do this each time you shower for a few weeks, you'll see results. It'll slide back a little more every few days. (and this part is in case your head is too sensitive to touch; might not be if you've been able to pull the foreskin back when soft) Now, as for the sensitivity, as studies have proven, the foreskin keeps the head sensitive. That's not a bad thing, since that creates pleasure. However, you don't want it too sensitive. Yours is just too sensitive because it hasn't been used much before. So you just have to rub it gently at first for some weeks and you'll see the difference. Then you'll be able to rub the head however you want. =) So in a way, those two things are tied. So yeah, work on it and in a few weeks you'll like it. =) And of course, feel free to e-mail me from my profile if you have any questions! You do NOT need circumcision. And you have every right to remain uncircumcised, as after all, circumcision does carry risks and most 'benefits' are unfounded or contradicted. Common risks of circumcision are more difficulty with masturbation (it was made popular in the USA to stop masturbation, after all), and lower sensitivity. There's a reason why the USA is the last developed nation doing it to newborns, and our rates are falling; it's as low as 14% in some states by now. Research it more in the link below: http://shorl.com/fifufrahodruje In the end, if the stretching fails after a few weeks, you can ask a doctor for a cream. It's 0.05% betamethasone, which is successful in over 90% of cases. You can even take the study to him. It's a really inexpensive cream; Wal-Mart sells it for $4 with prescription and online you can buy it for about $10 at drugstore.com, for example. http://www.scielo.br/scielo.php?pid=S167... But focus on stretching it first. That should give you results after some time.
