There is no connection between circumcision and male fertility. It is common in some cultures and there is no corelation in population growth. So you can relax on that count. Circumcision is removal of the external foreskin, which does not in any way interfere with the production od sperms which is an internal body function.

A tight foreskin may affect masturbation and we have suggested ways to overcome this problem onn this Site. In brief, there may be some inflammation caused by your efforts to pull down the foreskin. Use an ointment to reduce the swelling. Your doctor will suggest some cream.

Were you ever able to pull your foreskin down when you were young or has it always been this way? A tight foreskin can cause discomfort and pain, worry and embarrassment. There could also be problems of sexual intercourse, urination and infection.  

A tight foreskin or phimosis may affect intercourse as sex can be very painful, due to the friction which irritates the foreskin and can cause tears, leading to more pain. Decide with your doctor the best course of action. In any case, circumcision will not affect fertility.

You have mixed up issues here. Not being circumcised you cant masturbate, who says so? It doesnot happen.

Having perfect ejaculation and not ejaculate good amount, that has different logic. I can explain that, but you havenot masturbated still ejaculates, how you will explain that? 

Again mising up ejaculation with fertility, thats another mixup. Summing all together, you have asked a complete confusing question.

When you ejaculate, main part comes out is semen, alog with sperm. Sperm is responsible for fertility, not semen. Whether you are  fertile or not doesnot depend on semen or quantity, its on sperm count on you. out of few million healthy sperms only one is required for fertility. Quantity is not a big issue here. Sperm is microorgan, you cant see in open eyes. So what you release and how many sperm are there you never know. 

If you have problem with foreskin to stuck on the corona and not able to go through a proper masturbation, check with a doctor. I explained on phimosis before, you may need to go through an ointment or a small operation. 

Nothing serious my friend, a doctor can explain you better than us.

Male fertility depends on sperm count, and it has no relation with a circumcised or a uncircumcised penis. When you ejaculate semen, you are unable to see sperms which actually are responsible for conceving. And consider semen as sperms. An average sperm count is 20 to 40 millions sperms per millilter. A study said only less than 30% men in the world face fertility issues due to low sperm count. Anyways, you are not planning to have baby right now, so dont worry for that. Deal with your intacted foreskin, if its a problem for you to mastrubate then surely intercourse will be a problem. Consult a doctor for it. Its a minor issue.

There is clearly no relation between circumcision and fertility. If your tool is uncircumcised and if it pains when you try to masturbate,it can be a mess during sexual intercourse. If you feel the pain during sex,you'll not be able to enjoy the fun fully and hence,won't be able to satisfy the partner too. Hey,I'am not trying to tense you,but just telling you to be aware. Thats it.
Hence,I would suggest you to consult a doctor and find the best solution for this.
Hope it helps.

Hi Deepak,
circumcised penis is nothing but the cut at the foreskin of the prepuce part of penis. It doesn't have any connection with fertility of male. It is mere a customs of Muslim community as they believe that it will control the sexual behaviour of both genders. It's relevance is not scientifically proven.
Secondly, quality matters not quantity. One ml of semen contain millions of sperms and just one is needed for conceiving.
So forget everything and do regular sex with your wife and enjoy life.

You’re unable to masturbate with an uncircumcised penis and you fear infertility? This is interesting because I’ve never come across this one. Have you ever tried pulling your foreskin down with some kind of lube? Well even if you’ve and you’re still finding it hard to masturbate, go for circumcision that would put an end to your issue of a tighter foreskin.

As for your fears about infertility, they aren’t valid as there is no relation between the amounts of semen you ejaculate to your sperms’ health. To be sure about your sperms health get tested and know your results. A thigh foreskin doesn’t block the release of semen, so your tight foreskin isn’t a problem for your low quantity of semen release. If you’re a frequent masturbator, your semen quantity would always be low as it ideally takes a day to produce semen inside your body, hence on is advised to masturbate 2-3 times in a week.

I suggest you visit an urologist, so he can help you get out of this issue you’re facing. Circumcision is a must for you with the way you’ve described your problem and as for your fears of infertility, go for a test.
