Tight Foreskin

Hi everyone, I'm 18 and for as long as I can remember I've never been able to retract my Foreskin, to be honest until about 2 years ago I didn't know it was meant to, but I found out that this is not normal and was looking for any advice on what I should do.

I can't pull it back when either erect or not, but other than that it doesn't really cause any problems.

Thank you for any replies in response to this.

Hi JohnCa18,

It's probably worth booking an appointment with a urologist to see if they can recommend either some steroid cream or just remove the foreskin all together.

From personal experience it's well worth getting the operation done if you have the chance to.


Same story here


I had the same problem but I was about 13/14 I also wondered why my foreskin was doing this, without sounding too explicit, masturbating throughout my teens has made me able to retract my foreskin fully (I'm the same age as you) Essentially, there's nothing to worry about but see a urologist to be on the safe side. All the best.
