Brief Answer:
Every one has foreskin.

Detailed Answer:
Hello
Thanks for your query,based on the facts that you have posted it appears that you have foreskin covering your glans penis.

Please note that every man has foreskin which covers glans penis .

I shall be happy if you can post me few more details to help me in making comments on your problem.
1) Do you have any problem in retracting it back .?

If the retraction is painful or you are not able to retract it completely it will hinder penetration of vagina during intercourse and in that case you will not be able to enjoy sex with your female partner.

Please consult qualified Urologist or General Surgeon for clinical assessment .
if needed you may have to get circumcised .

This is a simple surgery done under local anaesthesia as a out patient procedure and offers permanent cure and helps to have enjoyable sex for rest of the life.


Hope I have answered your query ,please feel free to ask if you have more questions ,
I shall be happy to help you
Thanks and Regards.

this has happened periodically thru-out my life starting at about 17, it began again about a week ago again , i'm 40, when i urinate, it becomes painfull and i bleed (the tip of the penis) the blood is at the start of my urination, so it's at the beginning of my urination, it's not an internal problem but in the tip of the penis. Why does this happen? it bleeds for 2-3 days then stops, then i'm okay, but it does this maybe 2-3 times a year, Why?

I'm a heterosexual male, even if i have a long lovemaking session (60-90 minutes) with a women it seems like the tip can't take the punishment, i have started bleeding during sex, usually if i'm making love doggie-style, it's extremely vulnerable. I'm serious this is not a joke. Have you heard of anything like this?
