Worried i may have permanently damaged my penis Watch

    From the ages of about 8-14 i use to masturbate by pressing down repeatedly on the tip of my penis with my boxers on. I recently read somewhere that this could cause complications due to creating scar tissue.

    I am now 19 and discovered about a year ago i have phimosis as i cannot pull my foreskin back at all. I thought this was normal but when i was 16 i felt discomfort when getting a handjob as the girl pulled back too hard. I then put off sexual relations, however when I was 18 I attempted to have sex but again it was painful so i stopped about 5 minutes in.

    i have tried a stretching technique for about a month with no results, i need a quick fix so what do you suggest i do?

    Have i damaged my penis due to this strange masturbation technique?
    What do you recommend i do about the phimosis?

    See your GP. It's highly unlikely to be something you did as opposed to something you've been born with.

    What would i say? Do i just call my medical center and say i need a penis examination?

    'I need an appointment'. Why can wait until you're in the room with the GP.

    I had this condition. You need to see your GP, just phone them up and ask for an appointment. I had my frenulum removed which was a bit tight. It's likely they will recommend you have a circumcision or sometimes these steroid cream things that help looses things up - though I was never given these.

    Before they do anything though the GP will have a look down there, probably ask you to pull back your foreskin as far as you can, and then have you see a specialist. The specialist will also examine you and then recommend a treatment.

    EDIT: I don't think your masturbation technique has anything to do with it. It's likely you developed that technique due to the phimosis, rather than the other way round. Either way, the GP is the way to go.
