14 Years old foreskin fused with head

14 Years old foreskin fused with head

Hi I am 14 years old will be 15 in a few months I wanted to ask if I need to get checked out by a doctor my foreskin (frenulum I think) is attached to the head of my penis and is preventing me from pulling back more than 50 percent behind head. Also I am 99 percent sure I have phimosis also I have only just started puberty could puberty fix it naturally?

you should tell your parents, and go see a doctor, they can help!


You’re too young to be overly concerned. Phimosis is not a disease, and it isn’t permanent. Four times per day, for five minites each time, get your fingers into the opening and gently tug it apart.


I had phimosis for years, never retracted foreskin in 25 years (actual age, don't ask me why I waited so long). Reading these posts and seeing everyone saying they had to get circumcison scared the hell out of me.

Finally saw a urologist, he told me I didn't need circumcison. I was in shock, since I waited sooo long to retract foreskin I thought I was doomed. But doctor told me to sit in warm bath and start slowly pulling foreskin over glan, the water helps loosen foreskin and allow to stretch over glans a little easier.

Been doing that for about 2 1/2 weeks, and I can finally pull foreskin over penis head completely now, (before my foreskin could barely retract to open space for pee to shoot through, my foreskin was really tight still covered 95% of glans when I retracted foreskin)

Now my problem is I can't retract foreskin when erect (may be TMI, my penis when not erect is really small and it "turtles" a little, but when fully erect my penis grows way bigger, looks like a totally different penis). I'e been stretching like doctor said, and I can see foreskin retracting more little by little. I'm sure I'll eventually be able to fix that too.

In your case, I'd try to make appointment with a urologist, and try pulling foreskin when taking warm baths meanwhile.

You can expedite the progress by putting two fingers into the opening and pulling it apart gently but firmly. Do this four times per day for five minutes each time.


Can you help me with my issue? Look at my one post. I have a similar problem.


Definitely. Go to


The best thing to do is set up an appointment with your urologist. He will be able to examine you and then you can decide the best course of action to take. Don't listen to JimFromCalif, listen to a professional. Jim is a know "anti-circumcision" activist on these forums. There is no point in being pro or anti, if it is needed it is needed if not it is not, that is why you consult a doctor about your issue!

Good luck!


I am a professional with over 30 years experience. I've helped hundreds of boys and young men to avoid the life-long damage of circumcision. Circumcision of minors is never necessary. I adults, it's rarely needed. The prescription for surgery is made in the interest of profit.

Get it


You can try the stretching but if it doesn't help just get circumcised. I've been there and I'm happy it's done despite what the anti-circumcision gang want us to believe.


Try the stretching, leave circumcision as a last resort. You are still young so if not in pain, do not worry to much.

You are correct.


Your foreskin is too narrow to retract. You need to stretch it. (BTW, you are normal for your age.)

See this page:


The frenulum is a normal part of the penis and it is supposed to be there.

Your foreskin is quite narrow so you need to stretch it. This is common in boys of your age.

I don't think you need to be checked by a doctor but you do need to stretch your foreskin.

Please do not worry. You are normal for your age. Your foreskin is still developing. You don’t have phimosis. You have a normal, non-retractable foreskin due to your youth. It is not uncommon for teen guys to have a foreskin that does not retract.

You are blessed with a protective, highly-innervated, erogenous full-length foreskin. Many unforeskinned guys would envy your foreskin. You display great wisdom in wanting to avoid circumcision.

You should thank your parents for protecting your physical integrity. Because of your physical integrity you will be able to have sex the way nature intended it.


Do not be misled by those who want you to have part of your penis cut off.

Every male starts life with a tight, non-retractable foreskin. Some get looser automatically and some need a little help.

The foreskin is supposed to be tight and non-retractable in childhood so that it provides protection, but it is supposed to retract and glide back and forth in adulthood. Teens are in transition between childhood and adulthood so frequently the foreskin is still non-retractable.

There are three possible reasons that a foreskin will not retract.

1. The tip of the foreskin is too tight to pass back over the head.

2. The frenulum is too short to permit retraction.

3. There is a fusion or adhesion of the inner foreskin to the glans penis.

It is not necessary to have a foreskin that will retract. Some men live their entire lives with a non-retractable foreskin. They can masturbate, have penetrative sex, get married, and father children with a foreskin that does not retract.

You may clean non-retractile foreskin with a rubber-bulb ear syringe. Just fill the syringe with lukewarm water and squirt it into the foreskin.

It is easy to make your foreskin wider and looser by manual stretching.

Almost all boys are born with a foreskin that does not retract. This is normal. It takes years for the ability to retract to develop. About ½ of boys have a retractable foreskin by 10.4 years of age. Many adolescents still have foreskins that have tips that are too narrow to pass back over the penis head. These foreskins may be gently stretched over a period of time to cause them to widen. In most cases, the foreskin becomes retractable by age eighteen.

When your penis is erect, gently pull your foreskin back against the head of the penis. As the head attempts to pass through the foreskin it will stretch the skin a little. Do this several times every day and in a few weeks or months your foreskin will widen and you will be able to retract your foreskin. Do NOT force retraction. Do NOT cause yourself pain.

It works by tissue expansion. Stretching skin induces “mitosis”, which is a word that means “division of cells”. New skin cells are formed and the skin grows but it takes some time. The increase in size is permanent. Be patient and give mitosis time to work.

The important thing is to put the skin under tension several times every day so that it will grow wider.

Betamethasone valerate ointment, which is available by prescription may help, but it won’t work by itself. Manual stretching is still required.
