BEARING THE PAIN OF SLIGHT RETRACTION
Last night I was doing some research on circumsized / uncircumsized
pensis's and I discovered that I have the condition called Phimosis...
when I finally got the clinical name for my condition, I found your
I'm 22 years old, uncircumsized, and I saw in some pictures on a
few sites that some men were able to retract their foreskin all the
way behind the "head" of the penis. I've never been able to do that,
and the few times that I tried, I experience pain... what is described
on your site is exactly what I have.
I just thought I'd e-mail you in an attempt to get some additional
info or advice on it. I don't want to become circumsized, mainly because
of the pain that I think it will cause.... in addition, my fiance'
doesn't want me to do it either. I can usually bear the pain of slight
retraction during sex, but she knows it bothers me at times. I read
on your site that the skin can be ripped as well. I'm lucky that it
hasn't happened to me as yet.
Is there anything you can tell me in relation to this, I read about
the creams and the stretching, the slitting of the foreskin, etc..
as far as you know, what would you recommend. Has anyone mailed you
with similar scenarios before? I'm getting a little worried because
I don't want to beleive its a serious problem.
Let me know what you think.. thanks for whatever input you can provide.
I think you might have some success with stretching, ...
Beause yours is a childhood phimosis, (you say you could never retract
it), ... then you should be able to stretch it, we have recently been
researching this on ARC, and the 4 or 5 men I've advised in the last
month, seem to fit the pattern, ...
is sort of a good start, but it seems stretching in showers (and thus
steam?) might help ...
>Has anyone mailed you with similar scenarios before?
TONS otherwise I'd have never been able to get so far with research
in the face of the ignorance which abounds on this subject.
>I'm getting a little worried because I don't want to beleive its

hummm I'm not going to get too inolved with answering this, you see
if when you retract you experience pain, ... which you can just bear
... hummm ... ? ... the main consolation is theres possibly a very
simple cure, and theres lots of other men like you.
