Thread: phimosis

    phimosis

    I have phimosis and I've been training my foreskin to pull back completely. Around 6 months ago I've finally succeeded and over those past 6 months I've been trying to stretch it, daily, even further so that erections are comfortable.

    At this point, though, it is not. During erection with foreskin back my hood chokes the head. Not only that but the frenulum is taught as a bowstring causing me intense pain. I've been trying to stretch those constantly but I seem to be having no results with either problem.

    Am I doing it the wrong way?
    Am I doing it right but it takes much longer than I think and I'm simply impatient?
    Should I be considering circumcision?

    Hi lil_dave

    Here is a description from HealthLink BC of what phimosis is.

    Phimosis is a tightening of the foreskin that normally folds over the penis. This tightening may squeeze the penis, which may swell until it cuts off blood flow, damaging the tissue.

    I would suggest that you get your family doctor to refer you to a specialist. From what you have described it sounds like you may also be suffering from frenulum breve as well. The frenulum is an elastic strip of tissue that attaches the foreskin to the head of the penis (It is very sensitive).

    Frenulum breve is when the frenulum is to short, this may prevent the foreskin from pulling all the way back and can be sometimes confused with having phimosis. This could be likely given that you say it is really tight and painful. When the frenulum is this tight it can be common to damage it when having sex or masturbating. The situation can get worse as the frenulum is normally made of elastic tissue but when it gets damaged it heals with scar tissue which is less elastic.

    It could also be possible that you have both frenulum breve and phimosis. It would be easy for a doctor to have a look and let you know. This would be the first step as they may recommend different treatments depending on the condition.


    If you have additional information that you would like to discuss but do not want to share it on a public board just send me a PM.
