Ok, so the last time I posted on here, I said it hurts having to pull the foreskin over the bulbous head. Well, after looking online for methods to solve the problem ( didn't have time to go a doctor yet >.>), I can now pull my foreskin back (It starts to have a sharp pain that worsens towards the edge of the bulbous head (where its girth is at its maximum and just before the shaft). After it gets pulled over, the pain subsides.

However...my glans are way too sensitive! I touch it and instantly recoil because it feels as if it feels too good. Sometimes, I feel like laughing.

And when I rub the underside, it feels like a sharp pain. (Or rather a specific part of it...erm...are we allowed to post pictures or links to pcitures?) It is like this ...vein? Rib (not hard or bony...erm...)? I have no idea how to describe it, but it leads to the meatus. Whenever I touch it, it feels painful.

So is there anyway to desensitise the tip of my penis?

THanks in advance [Big Grin]

Have you first checked in with a doctor about this?

Since you are still experiencing pain while pulling your foreskin back, if not, I'd strongly advise you start with that, just to be sure everything's okay. And you can ask them, too, about the sensitivity and new pain you're experiencing.

Not really...I don't really have much time with university starting next week. Well, I'll guess I'll go when I can.

So...can we post links and pictures?

No, per the user agreement. And particularly not of your own genitals, especially since many of our users are minors, and that sets a precedent that could wind up getting us and them whacked with a child pornography charge.

Really, I'd make the time. This is the kind of thing where you want to first check in with a healthcare provider.

Wasn't going to post mine (I am not 18 [or 21, if you are in america]), but OK. Hmmm...thanks anyway. There is a medical center at my Uni, so I might be able to get it checked out there.

Perfect. [Smile]

I'd start with that, and see what they say.

If you are University in Australia most have a medical centre and your problem would not be unusual for them to handle. Medicare covers it so there would be no charge.
