Do I have to undergo circumcision and does this procedure affect me ?

I have a penis that is less than 1/2 an inch when flaccid and when errect it goes to 4 and 1/2 inch size. with this size during errection i can have intercourse. now the problem is that the fore skin is really tight during errection and the frenulum is tight too and this prevents the movement of the skin and so there is no sensation during intercourse and i cannot ejaculate. but in the normal flacid state the foreskin is really loose and there is a lot of extra skin in the flacid state and this might be due to small penis size . do i have to undergo circumcision and does this procedure affect me becose of small size of penis.?

For ur complaints, circumcision shall be a good operation to opt for. consult a surgeon for the same. Post procedure, it will not affect the penis size.

Most probably you have some degree of tightness of foreskin when penis is in erect stage and U R most likely to benefit by a circumcision operation. The size of penis would remain same but may APPEAR smaller bereft of the loose forskin. U need to see a surgeon for this. Sexologist for any other sex problem.
