Try pulling your foreskin back yes. It may be best to have a bath and soak your penis then try to pull it back as there’s going to be some discharge beneath your foreskin.

Shall I leave it rolled back in the underwear?

No you shouldn’t as that would be extremely uncomfortable for you.

But I think the head of my penis is quite sensitive and I think it would hurt me during sex

It won’t hurt you during sex your glans is supposed to be sensitive as it’s covered by foreskin. Only men who are circumcised have less sensitive glans.

So the foreskin is meant to be pulled back just for cleaning the glans and it has nothing to do with sex?

For cleaning the glans yes but during intercourse it will go back and forward as you go in and out out.

And if I wear a condom, the skin will be pulled back.. won't it hurt during intercourse?

I’m not sure with a condom I didn’t use them much and I’m circumcised.

Try to pull it back. If you can’t, there are exercises you can do to loosen it.

You really must retract your foreskin, for claining as well as for sex. If you can't pull it back, please go to the doctor. I myself couldn't retract my foreskin and got circumcised when I was 17. Despite of all excercises, circumcision was the only solution to my problem. I'm very glad I did it.

Are you a virgin, I have a follow up answer for whatever yours is

Yes virgin.

Yes than the first time you have sex the foreskin will retract naturally, happened with me but if your really concerned then ask your gp

Try to pull it back, but do not force it. It may need to be stretched if it does not retract easily.

Rather get circumcised and get rid of that foreskin. It will also improve hygiene too. Usually by 10-13 years your foreskin should have retracted.

It can happen at any age until 16 - 18 sometimes you have to do it yourself, btw it’s not more hygienic to be circumcised, it’s called cleaning the penis, and guess what that does, it makes it clean. Get some info before commenting, or don’t. I’m not having a go or anything, but that Information is wrong.

Sorry didnt mean to be rude. My reply didnt come out quite nice. What i just mean is you may need to get cut so that you wont have future problems especially with sex. Otherwise you can still try retracting bit by bit...dont force. I was lucky i had big brothers who taught me to retract when i was younger before i then decided to get cut.

Oh it’s fine, why did you get cut?

Well its mostly for health. And my doctor advised I should get cut to reduce chances of recurring yeast infections and reduce chances of cervical cancer on my wife. At one point i was living on clotrimazole. After i got cut my wife has not had any yeast infection.

Yeah, the only reason she would get yeast infections from you, would be because of your lack of hygiene, I’m not trying to be rude, but proper hygiene should stop you getting infections as well as giving others infections, also being sure to dry your penis properly, did you have recurring yeast infection? No doctor where I live would ever advise a circumcision for recurring yeast infections, they would prescribe medications and advise you on proper hygiene! Where do you live?

( sorry for asking questions,haha )

Hahahaha well circumcision was a personal decision. Yes correct hygiene is a factor but you must remember that if your partner has yeast infections or vaginitis the chances of reinfection are higher if you are uncircumcised because you cannot always be dilligent in soaking your penis in acid everytime you have kinky sex in the car or midnight or at your in laws. Hence the bacteria remains in your foreskin. Yeast infections are not only caused by poor hygiene... can be high sugar diet...wearing non cotton underwear. But i can tell you that after i was cut we have never had vaginitis. She had 6 weeks to clear it and medication and i had 6 weeks to heal my cut penis.

But one always has a choice and does what works. For me being cut has been a great decision which has worked and we dont worry about nasty bacteria add fungal infections.

I understand that their are more factors. yes, that’s fine, but you do know condoms will prevent spread. thanks for the answer, anyway I don’t want to offend you by carrying on the convo. So no more questions from me haha
