Doctor :  
Is it underside?
User :   to be honest.. until now I haven\'t been under sex
User :   not only underside, but even near the glands
Doctor :  
It should not cause any problem, but if you feel like having intense pain, that is to be cut
User :   I read a few articles saying.. usually the skin gets cut.. and sometimes may have to go under a small surgery.

If you are not able to retract the skin over the entire glans

Doctor :  
On first intercourse it get cuts
User :   oh ok
User :   on urinating.. I do see my toilet falling as a shower
User :   the foreskin has become loose..
Doctor :  
That is because of excess foreskin or extra skin

You have to pull the foreskin back while you are urinating
User :   I did try .. but even then sometimes it falls well while sometimes it falls again like a shower but not as I do see while urinating without pulling he foreskin
User :   as if urine is coming from 2 holes
Doctor :  
This is not a problem or a disease, so you need not worry

Doctor :  
If you feel this is a bring problem, you can see a General Surgeon or Urologist who shall examine

Always better is to remove the penis out of the undergarment, retract the foreskin properly and then start the urination
