    Hi
    I'm 17 years old and I think I need a circumcision. I live with my mum and my stepdad and I don't feel comfortable telling them about this so can I go to my GP and get it done without them knowing?

    Yes.

    You may not need one - the first step is probably going to be trying stretching exercises with the help of a steroid cream.

    Why? Phmosis (?) it's called I think. If it's not hurting or causing you discomfort when you ****/have sex no need to circumcise.

    Talk to your GP. We cannot give you an appropriate diagnosis, only your GP can.

    Yes Phimosis its called. However like the person above said, we can not give you a definitive diagnosis.

    If it is causing you pain, e.g tearing, bleeding, cannot retract fully, then you maybe suitable for a circumcision.

    In answer to your question, yes, seeing the GP is confidential and nothing is shared with your parents.
