What can I do to avoid getting paraphimosis?
- After having sex, going to the bathroom or cleaning yourself, be sure to pull the foreskin back down to its natural position.
- Never leave the foreskin behind the head of your penis for any longer than you need to.
- If a catheter is put into your bladder, check afterward to be sure that the foreskin is covering the head of your penis.
