Hi I am 29 and had my circumcision last week . I am dropping a couple of blood drops before urination and that's not happening every time either. When I contacted my Doctor he said bleeding has nothing to do with circumcision and it might be some other problem is it true????

doctor1 MD

Hi,
Thanks for writing in.

It is important to know from where exactly is it bleeding. A history of burning during urination is also important. In most patients circumcision involves removal of the foreskin. In some patients, a catheter might be used for passing urine following surgery. This can...

Hi Doctor

My skin on penis is very tight,before 6 years I can push the skin easily backward during intercourse, now skin hardly gets pushed backward, it does however affects erection sometimes as it dose not happen as smoothly as before.and the below part of the penis persecute is still attached its still not broken, Should I go for circumcision?

doctor1 MD

Good Day! I would suggest undergoing circumcision since the penile skin is causing pain and limits your erection. Circumcision is a low risk procedure that can be done under local anesthesia. I think in your case the benefit of circumcision outweighs the risks involved.

Thank You.

Phimosis results in tight foreskin which is either not retractable or causes much pain on retraction. It is best treated by circumcision.

In children, we sometimes use a steroid cream to soften the skin of the prepuce which may also work.

Hi XXXXXXX

Thanks for your query.

Inability to retract the foreskin is known as phimosis, resulting due to adhesions between the layers of the penile foreskin.

Poor hygeine, frequent balanitis(inflamation of foreskin), causes scarring of the tissues and hence the retraction gets difficult with...

Hi, I am askingon behalf of my partner, he had a circumcision last November as we hoped it would help with his erectile dysfunction. He could get an erection but it wouldn't last very long and he couldn't ejaculate through penetration, only by masterbating.
Since the operation we have noticed there has been improvements, he can sustain an erection for much longer, but still can't ejaculate. Also the main concern is there seems to be some scar tissue where the foreskin was cut, and after we have had sex,mthe next day his frenulum is quite sore.
We hoped to be trying for a baby, I don't want to put that kind of pressure on him as I don't think it would help the situation.
Is there anything you can suggest tomhelpmwith the soreness he has after sex and also how we can reach a place where he can ejaculate through sex?
I hope to hear from you soon
Kind regards
Cara

I have a purple ring around the glans of my penis. I am uncircumcised and my foreskin has been tight in the past, however I am able to pull it all the way back with no trouble now and have been regularly keeping the hood clean. Any ideas as to what this may be? The purple ring is a little tender, no sign of a fungal infection. I have read that using Bepanthen Cream for Nappy rash may help.

Hello Doctor. I am 21 years old. I cannot retract my foreskin completely because there is a small joint with the penis. Because of this incomplete retraction I think I have a little pain during intercourse whenever I try to push it fully inside. There are no issues related to urination. Is this phimosis, and if yes what should I do ? Is circumcision the only option ?
