| | Foreskin retraction
I'm 16 and my foreskin doesn't retract on its own, which I guess is common. I masturbate fairly frequently, I have gotten handjobs and blowjobs as well. I had unprotected sex with my foreskin not retracted, one time the foreskin retracted because of the sex and it was painful obviously. This was this the first time I became aware of the necessity to retract the foreskin, so I practiced stretching it in my free time. It was hard but I could fully retract it with enough lubricant. Shortly after, me and my girlfriend broke up....so I wasn't as sexually active and I stopped trying to retract my foreskin because I was emotionally distracted. I've gone back to masturbating with my foreskin not retracted. I have an appointment with a urologist in less than a month, but I'm still eager to learn some more about this situation. I guess my primary question is this; can I get circumcised at this late of age? I know it is advised to stretch the foreskin opposed to circumcision, but I'd rather just have it removed if that is a possibility. What are the disadvantages of getting circumcised? I know that I will be sore after the procedure, but that's just common sense haha. This ordeal has really put a lot of stress on me, just knowing that this is a common occurrence is a bit of relief.
