in reference to this excluded my foreskin because I asked this question due to the fact one website said the highest erection measured was 5.88in. mine is also 5in in soft state.i noticed on the WWW.WWWW.WW website the normal range for soft penises is 3-4in and 5.1-5.9erect I must be at bigger end of range

Brief Answer: It is not abnormal. Detailed Answer: Hello Thanks for follow up. Female vagina on arousal is capacious enough to accommodate erected penis up to the length of 7-8 inches.You have just 0.1 inch more than what you have read on some web site. Please do not worry ,it is not going to pose any problem in enjoying sex. Thanks and Regards. Dr.Patil.

Brief Answer: You may need to get circumcised. Detailed Answer: Helo Thanks for follow up. If you have difficulty on retracting foreskin over glans completely and if it is painful I would suggest you to get circumcised . However you need to consult qualified General Surgeon or Urologist for clinical assessment He will decide regarding the need for circumcision. If necessary go ahead and get it done. It is a simple surgery done under local anaesthesia as a out patient procedure. It will help you to have enjoyable sex through out the life. Do not attempt to keep it in retracted position as there is risk of developing Paraphimosis which is more XXXXXXX than Phimosis. Thanks and Regards. Dr.Patil.
