Question

Hi,

I have an uncircumsised penis. I want  to be circumcised without any pain or operation. When my penis is not erect I can pull back my foreskin that I can see my penis' head completely. But when I am erect it is not comfortable with the foreskin pulled back. Please help me.

Is there any problem with it? I heard that during the first time for sex the uncircumcised penis breaks from where the foreskin is joined to the inner penis and it hurts doing sex. Is it true?

Please reply.


Answer

If a man's foreskin is still attached to the glans of his penis, then it can tear away during sex and cause pain. This would not be true in your case. Your foreskin is not attached to your glans (the head of your penis). What you have is phimosis. This is where the opening of the foreskin is too tight to allow the foreskin to move easily while you are erect. There are stretching exercises that you can do ease this problem. See: I can pull my foreskin right back, but when it is pulled back it is really tight and I don't know if it is normal or if if I need to be circumcised.

If the stretching fails to give enough relief, you don't have to get a full circumcision. There is a technique where small slits are used to allow the opening of the foreskin to have more room. However, it is still an operation and there will be some discomfort while it heals.
