Foreskin attached to the head?

I tried posting a thread, but it didn't seem to go through, or that's what it looks like, sorry if i posted the same thread twice. I have recently discovered that i have Phimosis. Not that i have any problems down there, it's just the fact that a few of my friends were surprised to know that i can't pull my foreskin back; which got me to research the problem. I have read the thread on stretching exercises and i am currently doing as told. The one problem that seemed to arise is that once i started getting a little progress i noticed that my foreskin may be attached to my head. Close to the tip at the top near the opening. It seems like the inner part of the foreskin is coming out, and at a certain point it wont go anymore. Is this possible? Is this what leads to Paraphimosis? Also i have had had anal sex with a girl with no problems, but i have never put it in a vagina, is there a difference in regards with having a non-retractable foreskin?

Re: Foreskin attached to the head?

Well the only things that will be different is that you might experience some pain from time to time. If you wish to correct this you will have to go to surgery.
I don't know iif you maybe talked to your parents about this?

Re: Foreskin attached to the head?

It's most likely smegma thats causing the foreskin to stick to your glans. Smegma is a yellowish looking substance that is a combination of dead skin cells, urine, and semen. It is also known as "dick cheese". It's normal for you to have smegma but it's not desirable to let it remain underneath your foreskin, you should clean it out.

What most people don't realize though is that when you are not able to retract your foreskin it makes cleaning it out very difficult. If you were able to retract your foreskin the simple act of letting water run over your exposed glans while in the shower would be enough.


I went through the same thing, here's what I did that worked very well.

Grab some baby oil and 10-15 q-tips. Get yourself fully erect and start dabbing some baby oil on the head of your penis. Soak the cotton part of the q-tips in baby oil and try to lubricate your foreskin. Your goal is to lubricate the area between the inside of your foreskin and your glans so that you can insert the q-tip inside to separate the foreskin from the glans. You will most likely find it to be a somewhat uncomfortable sensation once the q-tip enters contact with your glans because your glans is hyper sensitive because it has never seen the outside world. Use lots of baby oil to help make it more tolerable. Just by doing this type of contact with your glans for the first time it will help reduce the sensitivity to normal levels if you keep this up daily for a month. Use the q-tips and baby oil to clean out the smegma underneath your foreskin, use a new q-tip anytime you can tell the current q-tip is dirty.

You can also insert 2 q-tips at once and use them to help you stretch the opening of the foreskin, doing this daily will help stimulate the foreskin to grow more cells and become more stretchy which will eventually allow you to easily glide the foreskin to retract behind the glans.

Just to make sure of one thing. Don't misinterpret me saying to insert the q-tip into your penis. Insert, or rather, slide the q-tip in between your inner foreskin and your glans. Do NOT insert the q-tip into your urethra (peeing hole).

Feel free to ask anymore questions you might have.

Re: Foreskin attached to the head?

it is normal for the foreskin to be attached to the head, just under the urinary opening.
that part is called the frenulum, the most sensitive part of the penis.
if it is not the frenulum which is attached, you have an adhesion. this happens when someone tries to prematurely retract your foreskin, and injures your penis. the foreskin heals to the head. a doctor can give you a local, and slice the adhesion free, if you are unable to loosen it yourself, by gentle pulling with baby oil, after a week or so of trying.
once it is sliced, you have to apply vaseline, to keep the two pieces from healing together again.

Re: Foreskin attached to the head?

Yes you are right. But if there is a bridge somewhere else that is not normal then. You should then go and see a doctor. Maybe you could need a surgery for that.

Re: Foreskin attached to the head?

from a doctor, surgery is not always required. that's why you try pulling, with baby oil.

Re: Foreskin attached to the head?

Be careful, if you are in the US. American doctors recommend circumcision for a hangnail. I've had 3 doctors recommend circumcision as the only way to fix my son. Years later, after doing it, we found out that there was no problem.
You should thoroughly read the sticky at the top of Men's Health, and really know what you are talking about, before you see the doctor. You should know the difference between an adhesion, and your frenulum, and be able to tell the doctor, "I believe my situation may not call for that, because of...".
Best of luck with this.

Re: Foreskin attached to the head?

Be careful with doctors and surgery. It can be like crack heads and crack.
Less is better, when it comes to cutting.

Re: Foreskin attached to the head?

You should be careful but I think this is your best option for getting rid of this. Try to ask doctor everything that you want to know. Let him explain everything there is to know.

Best of luck.

Re: Foreskin attached to the head?

circumcision is never the best option. it removes the two most erotically responsive parts of a man, the inner foreskin and frenulum. American doctors recommend it at the drop of a hat.
it's your penis, and the only one you will ever have. you make the decision, and you call the shots.
