Tight foreskin / phimosis

Hello doctors,

I discovered sometime back that the tight foreskin that I had is a condition called phimosis and ranges in its severity. For me, I can just barely see surface of the glans. I'm not sexually active. Have never experienced problems during masturbation.  Does it cause pain or discomfort during intercourse?
