Hi all, I'm 19 and I've been to the doctors a few times about this but was just wondering if my foreskin is normal/if anything can be done.
It used to be tight to pull back when erect (6 months or so ago) but now when I'm erect I can easily pull back the foreskin behind the glans. However, I thought this retraction was supposed to happen automatically- rather than me manually having to fiddle before I can put a condom on (which is embarrassing) Also when the foreskin is behind the glans it makes putting a condom on quite hard as there is all that skin to manoeuvre the condom over. During sex my foreskin will come back over the glans which makes sex painful. I mentioned this to the doctor and he said if stretching doesn't help then circumcision is an option.
So I was wondering a few things:
1) Is this normal that I have to manually retract my foreskin- is this lifelong?
2) Are there other options than circumcision anyone knows about?
3) What exactly are the stretching exercises I'm supposed to be doing?
4) Are condoms supposed to be this hard to put on?
Thanks for any help or guidance!!
