Question: Hi.

I'm an 18 year old male who for the first time got laid the other week (wooo Doc, give me a high five!!) but it wasn't as pleasant as I first thought.

I suspect this is the case because I'm not circumcised. Let me elaborate;

I CAN pull the foreskin back over my glands whilst flaccid with no trouble. It sits just below the edge of the head.

however when erect, this is the issue. It may lie between the Fenulum or it may be a lack of stretched skin - I'm not sure. I have done a bit of research online but all it's done is clouded up my mind.

There is little-to-no pain "around the foreskin" when trying to pull it back whilst erect, the only pain is on what I assume is the Fenulum. The best way I can describe it is as if there's too much tension on it.

What should I do? I will mention I want to try and avoid circumsion at all costs

Kind Regards,
XXXX

Brief Answer:
Urethritis or from trauma

Detailed Answer:
Hi, thanks for using Healthcaremagic.

I went through your query and understood your concerns.

Your symptoms are suggestive of urethritis could be from poor hygiene.
During erection skin do remains tight behind head of penis. pain over fenulum could also be from trauma during sexual act.

Better to get urine test done to rule out urinary infection. Never forget to returning the foreskin to its normal position after pulling it back. Maintain good hygiene.

If your urinary test shows infection need to get treated for it.

Hope i answered your query. Feel free to ask further related query.

I am a 26 year old man. I've used protection for vaginal sex but no protection for oral sex.

My meatus/external urethral orifice is slightly swollen, it stings when I urinate and I have an ache in my testicles but I don't have any discharge.

Could this be the beginnings of gonorrhea or could it be urethritis? How would I treat this?

Hi, I ve been experiencing what feels like a burning sensation around my cervix area.. and sometimes a mild pinching pulling feeling like I sometimes feel during/just after a papsmear. There are no other symptoms, no discharge, no odor... I have had this happen before in the last couple of years, the doctors tested me for all sorts of things and everything came back negative with the exception of them saying that they could see very minor amounts of bacteria. They prescribed me flagyl, which made me sick.. then they gave me clyndamicin, which I opted not to take and instead used boric acid suppositories.. that seemed to clear it right up. Well, it is back and has been for about a week, it has been about 8 months since the last flare up. I have been using boric acid and it didn t help.. I still had the clyndamicin so I opted to go ahead and take it this time, and I m about halfway through.. (4x a day for 2 weeks).. and I m not getting any relief yet.. I have been with the same partner for 2 years now, and I m certain he is faithful as we work and live together.. so WHAT IS GOING ON?..I bought one of the OTC screening tests .. and the yellow did turn a little bluish.. which indicates bacteria not yeast.. but why am I only experiencing burning and no other symptoms.. is this BV? Cervicitis? Urethritis?.. or does it matter? it is all a form of a bacterial infection that is all treated the same way. I really don t want to go back to the doctor at this point.. we spent a fortune last year going back and forth only for them to tell me the same thing... We dont really know.. you have a small amount of bacteria showing but that isn t unusual.. here take an antibiotic! ...

Hi,I have been diagnosed with urethritis by a local urologist on tuesday (Sept 21, 2010). I have been taking Vibramycin 100mg 2x a day for 6 days now. The burning sensation and the itchy sensation are all gone but i still see some transparent discharge from my penis. Is this normal?
