I was wondering if uncircumcised men always have the foreskin retracted as part of their exam. Does the doctor do it or instruct you to do the retraction? Is this embarrassing to you?
My doctor asks me to retract my foreskin. I wasn't born with a lot of foreskin, it does cover the head and I love the feeling when I pull it back. I wish the doctor would retract it (it feels fabulous for someone else to do it), but he always asks me to.
In my experience, mainly the nurse/doctor asks me to pull back my foreskin - for instance, whenever I go for an STD check, they ask me to pull it back myself before they examine me.
To answer the OP's question, yes, there is something about lying in the surgery with my glans exposed... it's a strange, also slightly arousing feeling.
Almost everytime I have had my genitals examined, the doctor has always retracted my foreskin. I found this exam embarrassing, particularly in my pre-teen/ tenenage years. My sister and mom were always present during the exam. During the exam the doctor would ask me questions about my penis and testicles.
I remember having my foreskin retract during the group/sports physicals in high school. The doctor would just rinse his hand off in a bowl of cold water ( no gloves) after he examined each guy. When the time came I dropped my pants. The shock was his cold hands on my penis retracting the foreskin then moving the testicle/ hernia exam. It is no longer embarrassing and just part of the exam.
@exam doc ... so far i can remember it was like this. After the basical exam in my boxershort he said, i should pull down my underwear. While I do this he put on his gloves.
While he put on his gloves, he watched on my genitals. Then he examined my tecticles. After this he asked me if i have problems wirh my foreskin, i said "no". He asked me to retract my foreskin, so i do that. H watched on my penis for a few seconds and then the exam was finished. I feel very embrassed!
Went to my urologist last year who retracted my foreskin while examining my penis. While the skin was pulled back she examined the head and the urethral opening.
I've been to more doctors than I can count over the years. Working construction for over 40 years I've had a pre employment physical before going on most jobsites as well as annual physicals from my regular doctors. The question of my uncircumcised penis has only ever come up once, when I was 17, in a football physical when our team doctor asked during a hernia check, "does your girlfriend have any trouble getting that skin to slide back?". In the nearly 50 years since then it's never been checked and the subject never introduced.
I am uncircumcised & my doctors either retract my foreskin with a gloved hand or ask me to retratc it on examination
Yes, when I was examined my doctor retract my foreskin.
Never had my foreskin retracted a a routine physical exam.
While I am circumcised, I teach male specific exam skills at a major medical school. We teach that the examiner must retract the foreskin to adequately examine the glans penis. We also teach that the examiner should return the foreskin to its natural position at the end of the penile exam.
Yeah in my exams the doctor retracts the foreskin. The feeling of the skin retracting is enjoyable and my enjoyment can be seen and combined with growing erection in front of the doctor while my glans is beginning to reveal itself to the doctor embarasses me quite a bit. Then there's the fact when my penis is erected it is 5" long which means it is an inch shorter than average local penises, brings embarassment too. Altough I enjoy having a smaller penis because my penis looks cute to my eyes because it is smaller than average and when flaccid it will fit in my underwear without having to put it to either side.
One doctor retracts and hold the foreskin back while examining penis head, urthrea opening and discharge from my penis.[/quote]
Now that sounds like a really complete and effective examination of the uncircumcised penis. I would love to observe that exam. My mental image as the doctor would be to be examining a patient who was stripped to his briefs. The exam would be moving toward the exciting conclusion with the patient lying supine on the exam table and me doing auscultation and palpation of his abdomen. I would step away from the table, get a pair of exam gloves on, and sit down on a three-wheeled stool. I would instruct the patient "now I need you to come and stand right here (I would point to the floor in front of me) and face toward me. Good. And go ahead and slip your shorts down to about here (I would point to the patient's mid thigh area) for me. Since you're not circumcised, I'm going to retract your foreskin. Any problems with your foreskin?" I would take the penis in my left hand and fully retract the foreskin so that the entire inner surface was stretched back. I would hold that position and use that grip on the penis to rotate it slightly so that I could see all around the corona. I would continue to keep traction holding the foreskin back and tilt the head upward to expose the frenulum. I would feel along the frenulum and then spread the meatus with my right hand. Then I would pull the foreskin back over the head and proceed with testes and hernia.
Yes, always my doctor in the anual exam retract my foreskin.
The majority time the doctors would retract the foreskin during the gential exam. During school physicals, the doctor would retract the foreskin one or twice before the hernia exam. My current doctor usually retracts my foreskin a few times before checking for a hernia. One doctor retracts and hold the foreskin back while examining penis head, urthrea opening and discharge from my penis.
Always have foreskin retracted when I have been examined. Normally Dr asks me to retract it
I have always had my foreskin retracted during a genital examination
Sometimes it was left retracted to see if it would return naturally
yes my dr always retacts my foreskin, growing up the dr would always retract all the way pull it back then retract again doing this sevral times it always resulted in me getting very hard
Yes our family doctor retracts my foreskin during my annual exam and my wife told me she does the same with our two boys.
That is good to hear. This should be a pert of the physical exam of any uncircumcised man.
Every year from 11 to 17, I had a school physical that included a genital exam. Every time, the schooldoctor, allways a woman, fairly old for the six first years, much younger the last year, took the penis of the boy in her hand and retracted the foreskin; I was allways very nervous during the school physical and the penis examination was the part of it I hated most. I felt humiliated.
Things got worse as time went by. As they grew older, many boys clamed to have an erection in front of the old lady, Most of them said they got hard on the exam the last year when the doctor was a young lady. I felt more and more ashamed, as, being so nervous I was of course unable to have any kind of erection Especially, the year of my last school exam at 17, I felt ridiculous with my babylike penis in front an an attractive female doctor.
Later, at 27, I had a physical as part of an exam to enter a bank; Then, an old male doctor lowered my brief and retracted my penis foreskin. i still hated it; .
ive never had my foreskin retracted didnt know that was supposed to be done
He only touches my testicles but he asked me to retract the foreskin by myself
This sounds really great. Do you remember if this was the first thing that happened after your underwear was down or if he did the exam of the testes and hernia exam before? If you can recall, tell us exactly what his instruction was to have you retract the foreskin. Did he do anything with the head of your penis once it was exposed? Did he tell you to pull the foreskin back forward after he saw the head or did you just leave the skin retracted? Was this embarrassing to you?
I have a younger friend who is uncircumcised. Him and I have the same doctor. During one of his visits I attended with him, our doctor announced he would be doing a full physical on him during that particular day. Our doctor asked if I would step out, but my younger friend said I could stay. Doctor was ok with that and reminded him this would be a full exam and my friend was still OK!! So the doctor proceeded with the full exam. ...and then came time for his underwear to come off!! His uncircumcised penis was on full display and doctor started doing the usual exam. Doctor then said he would be retracting his foreskin back. and then proceeded. I had heard this friend of mine was "well responsive" during any kind of intimate touch! As the doctor continued, checking the retraction it didnt take long for my good friend to develop a full erection!! I was able to watch the full exam and response!!
I remember lots of us lining up for some kind of medical, that first was an injection of some sort from the nurse, then pants down for the (male) doctor and a 'testicular check....in retrospect all a bit wrong....
Haven't been in the situation as an adult. I can remember junior school yearly medicals where you were examined quite intimately although this was in the seventies, I can't think anything like it would be allowed to take place nowadays. These were when I was aged five through eleven. Up until eight or nine the nurse would push my foreskin gently back to examine the helmet and pee slit. I do remember being asked to do it myself which was oretty embarrassing but usually it was all over in about half a minute anyway and you could pull your briefs back up with a sigh of relief.
before i was circumcised, my foreskin was fully retracted by either a doctor or a nurse. the difference was how it was done. some doctors retracted my foreskin slowly to expose the entire head, while other doctors pushed my foreskin back very fast not only to fully expose the head but also stretch foreskin all the way back.
he does its normal procedure
Well in my physical doctor started retracting it and then pulling it back for a moment.
Hi, Most of my physicals required that my foreskin be retracted. Rather uncomfortable as I have a somewhat tight foreskin. A couple of times circumcision was recommended. My last physical, the doctor spent a fair amount of time examining and retracting my foreskin - somewhat focused on it with several questions as if he had never seen a foreskin before (he is in his 70's). But then I am not the norm as the circumcision rate for my community is 99%.
