Hi,

Thanks for the query.

Please note that the foreskin is retracted during flaccid as well erect state. If you cannot do that you may have a painful intercourse and/ or early ejaculation secondary to pain.

Circumcision can rectify the problem, however ideally, you need to be examined and evaluated before deciding on if you need circumcision or not

Hope this answers your query. Let me know if you need more information.

Best wishes

Dear XXXXXXX

Surgical procedure is the only solution and there is no pill for cure.

A Urologist or experienced general surgeon can do this procedure. If you are in Mumbai you can come to our clinic after taking a prior appointment.

Since it is very simple procedure done in minutes, you just need few hours of hospital stay.

Best wishes
