For the last several months my penis at times seems to retract and want to go inside my body. I am cut, but when it does this it looks like I am uncut. It is a very unpleasent feeling and I find myself pulling on it and fixing it at least ten times an hour. In a few mins it retracts right back in. Any ideas on what is going on. Thanks
I don't know what causes it. But I too have experienced it. My penis often retracts inside, quite an odd feeling. I am cut, and it goes inside so far that you can only see the hole on the penis tip. Has anybody else had this happen, when, and what causes it?
We need some more information. Are you under some stress? I see you are in the USA so it shouldn't be that cold, but do you work or live where it is chilly? This might be silly, but are you wearing really tight underwear?
Thanks for helping - I live in MD, it's been above normal temps all summer. I don't have any above normal stress. I wear boxer briefs. I hope someone knows whats going on with me. It doesn't feel right and I'm getting tired of it. Thanks in advance.
i have the same problem it is the worth feeling and it is embarrassing when in the shower with other guys if someone really have a solution to this i would love to hear about it i know im not the only one that wishes it didnt happen someone please help
I was circumsized at the age of 15 -- oh how I regret it -- but I never had a retraction. I have a small red line (scar) from the operation, however.
Now, 20-something, I try my best to educate ladies about not buying into the hype of circumcision (for their sons). Men's Health, Esquire Magazine (they ran a very excellent article a few years ago), Men's Fitness, the medical boards of UCSF, and hundreds of medical colleges (worldwide) have rejected circumcision: there is NO need for it other than cosmetics. As it turns out, circumcized men have the same infection rate as uncircumcized men. Imagine that.
Why did I have a circumcision? Because my first doctor believed that my head was too large for my foreskin -- basically, my foreskin would pull back automatically like a convertible. He said it might pose a problem and recommended a circumcision. My mother and myself bought the hype. After asking my current physician about it, he said the procedure was unnecessary and dangerous. My condition was normal.
I am not against circumcision as a whole; I just hate the fact that most men never had the choice or they were manipulated into the procedure. All babies should be left natural; if they grow up and want the procedure, more power to them. Just give them a choice.
thanks for your comments, AD and Weaver, my condition has not gotten any better. my doctor tells me its all in my mind! i have no problem getting an erection, i can get hard any time - all the time. I just wish i could maintain a postive penis length when i am not hard! i am cut, but i bet i have more fore skin then a lot of uncut guys. please advise. thanks in advance.
It is most likely because you have put on some weight. And because of that the pad of fat around the penis is pushing the skin up a bit, and the penis is being covered by the skin around the penis.
This happened to me for a while, and immediately stopped as soon as I lost about 20 lbs.
