My erections are very stiff and against my abdomen

Last updated on October 9, 2020



I am a 20 year old male. When I was a baby I think I was given a tight circumcision. Now when my penis is erected, it becomes too strong — like a piece of bone. There is no skin at all to roll around it. I can’t also move it in any direction. It’s like a stick against my abdomen. Does anyone know what is the problem and how to solve it?

Thanks in advance.


Depending on the doctor who does the circumcision, different amounts of skin are left. Your circumcision left you with basically no spare skin. This doesn’t mean that you won’t be able to have sex, but it does mean you will need to make sure you use lubricants since there is no give.

The hardness of your erection is normal, especially in a young man. The direction of your erection comes from a cord that is inside your groin called the fundiform ligament. At the moment that cord is tight, so your erection is close to your body. As you get older, that cord will stretch and your erections will stick out from the body more. Thus, once again, it is not something to worry about.
