Glans swells when erect?

Hey folks,
I've got a bit of a concern with my penis that I've had for quite a while now and I think it's finally time I asked for a bit of assistance.

When my penis is flaccid, I can easily and comfortably pull back my foreskin as far as it will go, with no pain or problems. It doesn't hurt or anything.

The problems start when my foreskin is pulled back when I have an erection or if I pull it back during an erection. It gets alot tighter and constricted below my glans, and caused my glans to enlarge, turning a purple-ish shade as well as causing me some discomfort. This problem has ailed me for a while now, and I'm at an age (17) where sex is certainly an option, but I'm a bit worried about it because I fear discomfort while having sex.

So my question is, how can I stop my foreskin being tight while it is erect? When I was young I think I had phimosis but I got past that by stretching it...should I just keep stretching while I have an erection or is there something I'm missing?

Thanks for any help..I really would like to be able to be comfortable with my willy and women.

Yes, I think you need to keep stretching your foreskin, until it no longer constricts your glans. There are some excellent instructions in the sticky, at the top.
