When they become 3 years old, 0% of the uncircumcised boys should be able to pull back their foreskin from the tip of their penis. 17 year old males where 97% of these males are expected to fully pull back their foreskin. Paraphimosis , or sometimes known as adult phimosis, is a condition when the foreskin is taken behind the corona of the penis and cannot return to its normal position which causes entrapment of the glans, thus, blocking the supply of the blood. When this happens, it can result to severe painful conditions.
