Tight Foreskin


Q: I am 15 and fear I may suffer from phimosis , as my foreskin only pulls back a bit over the glans of my penis, and when retracted as far as feels comfortable there is only about 1-2cm of the very tip showing. It doesn't bother me and I can clean it fine, but I heard that during sex it can make it uncomfortable, as I am at an age I will most likely sexually active I don't know whether to just to wait and if stretching it will eventually lead it to retract fully or to seek medical advice from my GP.
