Why does my foreskin tear?
Miguel Asked: Why does my foreskin tear?
For quite some time my foreskin would be tight and tear when I try to pull it back. Why does it tear and how do I treat it?
I also was researching it and thought it could be a yeast infection. Is it?
you obviously have a thin foreskin. you need to gently , very gently , stretch your foreskin over a period of months or even over a year. if you feel pain during the stretching you need to ease up. take your time and be patient. it will happen. if you had a yeast infection you would have painful bumps under your foreskin and on the head of your penis.
Audie is right,….you just need to stretch the skin to make it loose enough to retract without pain or difficulty.
You have a naturally tight foreskin, just like every other intact (not circumcised) man on the planet had at your age.
Over 85% of the males on earth are intact so you are on the winning side. The other 15% are envious and wish they still were intact.
Follow the information in the links below and work the foreskin stretches into the daily shower routine.
Let the warm water loosen and relax the skin before stretching.
Stretches are to be firm, but gentle, with no pain. Pain is a damage indicator. Over stretching till it hurts can create micro tears in the skin opening that will heal over with non elastic scar tissue, making retraction more difficult. No pain,…ever.
What will happen is the Frenar Band (google it) of muscle that closes down the skin opening will relax and expand enough to allow the foreskin to glide effortlessly back and forth over the coronal rim of the glans.
You should see some good results in two weeks, with full and painless retraction in 3-4 months. If it takes longer just keep stretching.
If you choose to see a doctor about this, ask for Betamethasone cream. This is the standard that is prescribed to help loosen a tight foreskin. Do not let the doctor even breathe the word: Circumcision. You don't need that. Find a new doctor if need be….someone who will treat the matter without taking a knife to your penis.
You can also go to the drug store and get Cortisone cream. You can buy a weaker version off the shelf at .5% under the name "Cortaid". This type of cream will work as well,…just not as effectively as the higher strength stuff from the doctor will.
Apply the cream an hour before and give it time to work its magic before stretching.
You have to do the stretches in conjunction with cream use, so why not just try the stretches first?
Do not listen to anyone who claims you need to force the skin back to clean under there. Nature has this well in hand. The foreskin/glans combination produce a powerful anti microbial compound called Langerin. Langerin wards off bacteria and keeps this area clean and disease free…..just like you are now.
Go to: www.norm.org and read about the reason and function of the foreskin. You will see how very fortunate you are to still have yours, and how misguided are those who promote circumcision for any reason.
Good luck and I hope this helped.
NOT SAYING IT ISNT POSSIBLE THAT UR PREGNANT BUT ALL THE SYMPTOMS YOU JUST DESCRIBED DONT COMETILL LATER IN PREGNANCY. I JUST GAVE BIRTH 4 MONTHS AGO AND I HAD ALL THOSE SYMPTOMS TOWARDS THE END OF IT.. TIREDNESS AND SORE BOOBS ARE BEGINING BUT SEEMS REST ARE LATER…GET A TEST TO BE SURE. AND UMM THE PULL OUT METHOD!?!?! DONT WORK, ALWAYS PRECUM…
Pregnancy is always a possibility if you are sexually active. It is possible to get false negatives. Some women can't get a positive on a home pregnancy test. I suggest going to your doctor for a blood test.
I am having the same issues as you, only it was twice on 2/4/12 with no method besides my daily birth control and I'm having similar symptoms to you and all negative tests! I was told by a friend I'm testing too early but I don't know. (never got my period though. Should have started about a week ago)
