    Hi guys, need some advice. My foreskin doesn't go back at all and never has. I haven't told anyone about this and I don't know what to do because I'm at the age now where I will have a boyfriend soon, and I'm just wondering how common this is and what I should do, thank you.

    If yes, then go to a general surgeon or an urologist, they'll give you best advice.
    and you no need to be worried about it...it's quite common.

    Hey, I'm a doctor. You like have a phimosis. it' extremely common so don't be worried. You'll likely need a operation/ circumcision. Go and chat to your Family doctor and they can refer you on for surgery icon_biggrin.gif

    This guy had the same thing! You may not want to watch it until after surgery though...

    I had the same problem. I didn't want to have surgery so just worked at stretching the foreskin little by little. It took some time and willingness to endure some discomfort but was eventually able to get it all the way back behind the head. Eventually it was no longer a problem.

    Circumcision is not a terrible thing. The pic of this condition looks uncomfortable. Nothing can be more anxiety producing than a different looking penis..

    I tried stretching previously but just got bored after I couldn't see any results. When I say it doesn't go back at all I mean it, it's like a slit. I don't want to tell my family either because its just awkward :/

    Go see a doctor. It will not be awkward for them, so don't let it be awkward for you. You'll feel much better after it's been looked at and an appropriate treatment option has been found (and surgery is not always necessary).

    You got bored??

    Well I guess it's only supposed to be fun when you're with someone.

    The stretching sounds like good advice. You can't let boredom stop you and definitely see a doctor, they will have the best solution, but see a couple of them. Don't just settle for the first one. Plus your family doesn't need to know this. Just don't tell them and see a few doctors about it.

    Sounds like you have 2 choices, stretch it despite the boredom, or see a doctor.

    Life is full of hard as well as awkward choices. I'm sure it's awkward for most parents to talk to their kids about sex, but it's gotta be done.
