too much foreskin or phimosis??

hi,
I'm 16 and i've never been able to retract my penis all the way. I've never even seen the head of my penis before. i thought it was normal until i searched about it and found out that i couldn't retract it.
so i was wondering if i had too much foreskin or phimosis. when i'm not erect i have alot of foreskin ( it overhangs ) but when i am erect i still have about 1-2 cm of foreskin over the head.
please give me some advice on what's going on.

thanks,

kzv

Re: too much foreskin or phimosis??

No, you don't have too much foreskin....short of tripping on it. It is the length it is, because that helped your ancestors to survive. Overhang during erection is perfectly normal, for a certain percentage of the male population. It makes penetration easier, and gentler.
The phimosis is easily fixed, by gentle, daily stretching. See the sticky on stretching a tight foreskin, at the very top of the Men's Health forum. It has everything you need to know, thanks to GeoffB.
