Im a 14 yo uncircumcised boy well into puberty. When i get aroused my foreskin doesnt slide back. When i read around stuff says it should slide back when you get an erection. I have no problems sliding it back fully when flaccid. When aroused i can't slide it back more than half way down the glans.

Please help!!

The idea is that you should be able to slide it back when it is erect, so that you may safely put on a condom. If the foreskin/glans hurts, or the foreskin seems tight, you should check with your doctor to make sure everything is in order.

I agree with lemming. See a doctor.

I'm uncircumcised myself, and I don't recall ever having trouble sliding back my foreskin while erect.

Don't worry; if anything is wrong, it sounds correctable. It's always better to see a doctor sooner rather than later.

With Peace,

Exactly how problematic is a non-retracting foreskin? Meaning, what are the implications regarding a condom if the foreskin isn't retracted? Is it more likely to come off, etc?

The reason I ask, is because my b/f's doesn't retract - not that it's tight, but possibly because there is more than a little... overhang let's say...
