User :   after erection my penis looks blend downwards, is that a problem? can be cured by any treatment?
Doctor :   hi
Doctor :   Dr.XXX here
User :   Good evening Doctor
Doctor :   please describe your symptom in detail
User :   my foreskin doesnt move below the head of the penis
Doctor :   ok. has it been like this since birth or have you developed inability to move foreskin below head of penis recently?
User :   once i got erection its looks like a blend in the middle, and forms a curve on my penis
User :   yes not even once my foreskin moved back by itself
Doctor :   ok. do you mean to say that due to the inability to pull down foreskin, the penis is having bent shape upon erection?
User :   i tried myself moving back and succeeded my little pain
Doctor :   ok. the inability to remove the foreskin is also also known as phimosis, it can be congenital (by birth) or acquired (develop later)
User :   whether my foreskin moves back or not. my penis looks bent only
Doctor :   do not try to pull it back yourself if it pains or causes discomfort, you will injure it more and it might lead to bleeding
Doctor :   we will first address the foreskin problem and then come to the curvature problem.
User :   ok
Doctor :   the treatment of phimosis is based on examination findings to see the extent of the problem and the cause behind the problem
Doctor :   usually the cause for it are adhesions either fibrous or tissue adhesions, that do not allow for skin to be pulled back
Doctor :   if these are mild, then topical ointments can be used
User :   ok
User :   ointments means kind of lube?
Doctor :   if the topical or medical management fails, then a small surgical procedure similar to circumcision is done
Doctor :   no, not LUBE, these are medicated ones to dissolve the adhesion or scar tissues
User :   ok
Doctor :   so once the exact problem for the inability to pull back foreskin is determined, treatment for it can be initiated
Doctor :   if the curvature or the bending of penis is associated with Phimosis, then the surgery or treatment done for its correction will help in correcting the curvature also
User :   ohh ok
Doctor :   if the curvature is still present then the extend has to be determined. mild curvatures of 10-20 degrees do not cause problems with having intercourse.
Doctor :   and sometimes get corrected once you start having sexual life
Doctor :   to almost upto 5 degrees correction
Doctor :   so I would recommend you to first tackle the Phimosis problem?
User :   yeah sure
Doctor :   and for this you will need to meet an Urologist or a Andrologist
Doctor :   for examination to determine teh cause
Doctor :   and proceed with treatment
Doctor :   did you follow what I have said? please get back to me in case of having doubt.
User :   yeah, any clinic recommendation?
Doctor :   I will try to help
Doctor :   please provide your location details

Doctor :   are you there?
User :   after failed i lost erection
User :   But earlier i had a good intercourse to an another girl, where she took all the responsbilities
