User :   My foreskin will only go back over my head when flaccid and when it does it gets really tight and bunches up and i have to unroll it. Im scared to do it again, please help?
Doctor :   Hi
Doctor :   I am Dr. XXX
User :   Hi
Doctor :   let me read the query
User :   Ok
Doctor :   There is nothing to worry about it
Doctor :   It is very normal
Doctor :   every man has to do this procedure
User :   I feel like its tighter than it should be though
Doctor :   What is yoru age?
User :   14
User :   I didnt want to go to a doctor in real life because i was too embarassed
Doctor :   You are too young, as you age the opening gets wider
Doctor :   and you do not have problem with rolling out
Doctor :   It is not at all embarassing situation
Doctor :   Believe me you are absolutely normal
User :   most of my friends can roll it back with ease
Doctor :   You will be more comfortable handling your penis after frequent usage
User :   at what age do you think i will be able to do so freely?
Doctor :   after frequent handling of penis while urination
Doctor :   try to pull it back each time your urinate
Doctor :   Do it very slowly
Doctor :   Do not pull it back completely
Doctor :   though
User :   Its very easy to pull it back when its flaccid
User :   but i dont want to get into the situation of it being tangled behind the head again
Doctor :   If you keep doing this slowly you will be able to do it freely
Doctor :   If it is painful then you should not try it and get tangled
Doctor :   I guess by age 15 to 16 you get to pull it back freely
Doctor :   take my word and be rest assured
User :   Ok
User :   Just one more thing, every time i try stretching it and pulling it back like you said i get an erection
User :   which makes it harder to pull back
Doctor :   Ok
Doctor :   That is fine
Doctor :   You just have to put some stimulate the penis till it gets some lubrication
Doctor :   If there is lubrication then it becomes easy
Doctor :   for pulling it back
User :   So if i have an erection i need to lubricate it to stretch it? like in the shower?
Doctor :   yes
Doctor :   You got it
User :   Ok Thankyou, Ill try it in the shower next time.
Doctor :   If you are not successufl
Doctor :   then you seek the help of your father
User :   OK
User :   Thanks for you help, i was very worried
Doctor :   No need
User :   I will be going now its late, Thanks
Doctor :   Ok Bye
