Problems pulling back the foreskin of my penis

Patient

Q: Hi, my name is Ian and I am 25 years old. This problem is a little personal and I'm a little nervous asking about it. Anyway, here it goes. I had sex for the first time a few weeks ago. Up until that point I was a virgin, knowing very little about sex or sexual anatomy. Also I'm uncircumcised. The thing is, I found the experience pretty painful. Particularly when she tried to pull my foreskin back over the head of my penis. That hurt a lot, and it wouldn't really pull back very far. She told me that you need to be able to pull the foreskin back over the head. I've tried a few times since to pull it back, but I can't. It hurts. I really don't know what to do and I'm quite ignorant about all this stuff. Please help.
