How to treat a non retractile foreskin of the penis?
Q: I am a 26 year old male. I am facing a small problem relating to my private part. While erect, my foreskin doesnt fold up. How serious is this problem and what could have been the cause of it? I havent had any physical contact till now but I masturbate to quiet my urge. How this situation can be corrected and if there is any surgery required then how much time total process takes as during the surgery itself and the recovery?
A:Non retractile prepuce or non opening of foreskin is a very normal variation and there is no need to worry about this. You could gradually train your foreskin to be brought back and forth using foam while bathing or using some lubricant. It may be better you seek advise of some urologist first and learn to do it under his supervision. In such cases, occasonally one needs to do a circumcision and that too is a very simple process.
