For many men, the phenomenon of excessive foreskin is not new to everyone. If you do not pay attention to daily hygiene, it is easy to breed bacteria and cause a series of diseases such as inflammation of the reproductive system. Moreover, for many men, excessive foreskin can directly affect their "sexual well-being" life, and we must pay attention to it.
What is redundant foreskin?
The so-called foreskin refers to the skin of the penis that folds into a double layer at the head of the penis. In infancy, the foreskin is longer, wrapping around the penis so that the glans and the outer mouth of the urinary head cannot be exposed, which is called physiological phimosis. "With age, the penis and foreskin gradually develop. By puberty, the foreskin recedes and the glans is exposed in adulthood.". "However, in about 30% of adults, the foreskin still completely covers the glans of the penis. Only when the foreskin is turned up by hand or the penis is fully erected can the glans and the external orifice of the urethra be exposed, which is called redundant foreskin, also known as pseudophimosis.".
Hazards of overlong foreskin
1. Prolonged foreskin affects sexual life
Excessive foreskin not only affects the pleasure of sexual life in men, but also endangers the health of the reproductive system in women. In addition, the foreskin is too long, and the dirt hidden under the foreskin during sexual life can stimulate the female cervix for a long time, easily causing cervical cancer. Therefore, it is best to perform circumcision for those with excessive foreskin length. There is no need to worry about the impact of circumcision on sexual sensitivity. On the contrary, due to the exposure of the glans and penile frenulum, sexual sensitivity has increased compared to previous years.
2. Excessive foreskin can easily lead to premature ejaculation
In general, male foreskin is too long, phimosis, and many other things are caused by the glans hidden under the foreskin, which easily leads to little contact between the glans mucosa and the outside world, and is basically not subject to friction or stimulation. This can lead to particularly sensitive nerve sensations in the glans mucosa. During sexual activity, when the penis is erect, the glans is exposed and rubbed and stimulated with the vagina. This can cause the nerves in the glans mucosa to become too sensitive and quickly excited, leading to ejaculation, which is known as premature ejaculation.
3. Excessive foreskin can easily cause foreskin scaling
"When a person with an excessively long foreskin urinates, the last few drops of urine are not easily drained, and generally remain inside the foreskin. In addition to factors such as foreskin and necrotic cells on the surface of the glans, it is easy to form a yellowish white muddy substance with a peculiar odor, which is foreskin scale.". If the foreskin scale cannot be thoroughly removed, it will stimulate the foreskin and glans, causing penis inflammation.
