Foreskin does not retract


Q: Hi doc, recently I discovered that a guys foreskin is supposed to be able to retract. I'm a guy aged 16 and I started to worry this week as my foreskin does not retract and my foreskin covers my glans when erect. Is this normal for a 16 year old or do I have a condition? I extremely worries me as a 16 year old, I will be losing my virginity in the next year or two and it scares me that it could affect my sexlife. Will it ever be a problem in my life, will it ever effect my sexlife, could it even take more time to retract. I masterbate everyday and it still doesn't retract. I've watched sex videos in school for a sex education class and all the penis' shown were retracted. Help!, C
