Blood on penis head


I am a 17 year old healthy guy. I have noticed that when my penis becomes erect i cannot pull the foreskin back over the head. I was reading that a problem this causes is that it can lead to infections under the foreskin. My problem is this:

I masterbate fairly regularly (3-5 times per week) and every now and again (apart from the white stuff that accumulates under my foreskin) during masterbation i notice a small amount of blood begins to appear above the rim of the foreskin which is halfway down the glans of my penis (which is as far as it goes when i have an erection). I have been advised in the past to go and get an std check - but I've never had sex. This also falls through when you consider that no blood comes out of the urethra. I wait until i go soft and then pull the foreskin right down to check for any cuts or blood coming from any opening but it always just seems to be random blood????? It's not normal blood either it is more marron than red.

Anyone got any suggestions or encouragements? would be much appreciated.

Re: Blood on penis head

Hey bud, I'm uncut too so I understand that equipment of yours. It doesn't sound like your foreskin is stretched enough to allow for it to be fully retracted over the head and onto the shaft of your penis while you're erect, is that true? If so, we can talk about some stretching that'll allow you to do that with ease and keep things clean under there. Sure, there can be infections that happen if things aren't kept clean and left over semen, urine and stuff can be part of that. Is there any pain at all? It sounds like this may be a tiny rip or tear in the frenulum, which is common but happens more when we fully retract and stretch it during erections or sexual things. This IS NOT an STD as you're a virgin and that simply cannot happen otherwise. I'm not sure what the source of blood would be if there are no cuts or such on your foreskin. Lets keep chatting about it and maybe we can figure this one out. And by the way, don't worry about masturbatoin at that rate, its perfectly normal and healthy!

Ok. So how do I go about stretching it? Because when it is erect i can only get the foreskin halfway down the head before it starts to hurt.

Re: Blood on penis head

You say you can't retract when erect. Does that mean you can when soft?
My stretching instructions are at the top of the Men's Health Board. See if you can use the two finger method for preference and the pull forward method for the frenulum. Stop if there is evidence of a tear and let things heal up.
Good luck,
