There are several well known stretching phimosis treatment methods around that are designed to help loosen the foreskin. Due to the lack of trauma, they are considered to be conservative alternatives to going through a painful circumcision. Most people decide to search for them online because they are difficult to find elsewhere.
In my case, I decided to try some stretching techniques I found on health forums. However, I found them to be painful, risky and incomplete. This may have been because these methods were not tested on most men. Although stretching foreskin can be safe, I had experienced paraphimosis several times with these incorrect methods. This is where I could not pull the skin back over the head and felt sharp ripping pain when standing up. The least discomfort was the swelling and dark lines forming on my head. This experience lead me to search for other techniques until I found one that finally worked and was not as painful.
After searching the entire internet, there was this Cure Your Tight Foreskin course that just stuck out and was recommended by Health For Men magazine. It was designed by John Rooney who had developed tightening of the foreskin in January 2007. Although he was able to fully retract his foreskin prior to this date, he could no longer do it without pain or difficulty. To make matters worse, he could not relax during intercourse because of the fear of ripping his foreskin.
He searched the internet but became frustrated as he could not receive a straight answer like most people. After seeing a doctor, he was immediately scheduled for circumcision. However, he discovered a simple technique that took 5 minutes a day and it helped him to fully retract his foreskin before his surgery date. Thankfully, he never had to go through surgery.
Personally, I had resolved my phimosis problem in little time with the correct stretching techniques. Prior to this, I failed for 2 years due to use of poor techniques, inconsistency and fear of dealing with more pain. If I had applied a good stretching phimosis treatment from the beginning, I could have retracted my foreskin much quicker. However, sometimes it is difficult to judge yourself when there is limited information about this subject.
Whatever you decide as your phimosis treatment, consider the credibility, effectiveness and duration of the treatment. My experience showed that it was best to choose something that worked on many others, was quick and least painful.
Certain stretching techniques can be time consuming to do everyday. This is why it is important to choose something simple that you can do consistently. Stretching has to be done regularly to produce long lasting results. People can stop their routine when they reach their desired goal.
