well. i posted my original question on the forum as a thread. I only just found out the 'askAdoctor' function, so im hoping you don't mind me pasting my original thread question in here.
--------- ORIGINAL POST -------
Well, im 16 and i'm a bit nervous about making this thread, and this account, it's been something i've wanted to do for a while now, but I figure posting anonymously(sp) on the net is far less embarrasing than seeing the doc ;)
so here's my problem. It's slightly hardly to explain, and I don't have access to a camera due to my age, and it's kind of hard to ask your mum to borrow a camera to post my penis on the net lol.
Since the ages of maybe 13 when I started playing around with my penis, not necesarily masturabtin, I noticed that I couldn't retract my foreskin all the way, infact, not much at all. When I eventually forced my foreskin over my glans to reveal the full head, it wasn't painful, but obviously not natural.
Now i'm 16 and the problem is alot better. This is due to the fact from reading on the net, one theory is to 'stretch' the foreskin, either with 2 fingers, or during masturbtion, by pulling it further down the shaft whilst doing it.
I started doing the first, but then I decided the 2nd option was much more fun :) hehe.
So... Sorry i'm rambling :roll: my real problem now, is that my shaft skin seems to be 'stuck' to the bottom of my penis head, the bit where it should curve down. I know this for pretty 100% sure, because one time a bit that I suspected to be non natural, peeled off, to give a more 'rounded' shape to that particualr section of the penis. It gave slight discomfert, but was fine the next day.
Unfortunately, this problem is also at the back of the penis head, where the shaft is connected to the head in the t shape thing. (can't remeber the technical term). It seems that it's stuck to the penis head, as if it needs to be surgically cut, or peeled away like the other bit.
I believe that once this is done, i'll be able to retract the foreskin much more comfortably when erect.
I forgot to mention before, that when erect, I can retract the foreskin to some extent. But it's uncomfortable, and although im a virgin, I can't imagaine it being to comfortable during sex. Another worrying thing is the fact that the back of the penis shaft, where it connects as mentioned before in the t shape thing, may even split or break during sex, which will definately not be memorable :p
sorry to ramble, but it's been on my mind alot as you can imagine.
You can go to an urologist for a visual examination of your penis because it is very difficult for me to understand what the real problem is from your description. If the foreskin canât be peeled back in order that the entire head be exposed, it is called "fimosis" and is treated surgically. If the foreskin is stuck at the base of the head (sulcus coronarius) and canât be turned forward, it s called "parafimosis". This condition could be very dangerous and has to be treated immediately.
