Hi i'm 17 years old and i have troubles retracting my back while erect. I went to the doctor and got some betamethasone cream for my foreskin, as i initially thought that i had phimosis.
I stretched for 3 days before i stopped, because i did some more research and found out that it could be the frenulum which was too tight. I then went to a urologist and had it checked and asked questions about a frenuloplasty. To clarify, i can pull back completely in flaccid. Having the foreskin bundle up abit under the glans in half erect and as i try to pull further down, it seems like the frenulum is pulling the glans down this is why i stopped the treatment and sought out a urologist.
This is my current situation without any real stretching. So my questions are 1. Should i just restart and do a complete 4 week treatment instead of 4 weeks -3 days it has been a while since i last stretched with the cream? The urologist told me to stretch for minutes twice a day, can this be enough? Also stretching for the total amount of minutes while erect is quite difficult for me, can you tell me how you manage to stretch the foreskin while erect for longere periods of time?
I am doing the stretching method of pulling the foreskin back until i feel tension, is this method just as ok as the one you suggest with pulling the foreskin to the sides with your fingers? Should i still apply the cream to the whole foreskin i apply from the end of the foreskin to where the glans "line" gets marked on the foreskin, avoiding getting it on the glans or for that matter the innerside of the foreskin AND the frenulum, even if it's only the frenulum that's tight?
My urologist told me to smear it on both, i'm just wondering if it's damaging the foreskin, if the foreskin isn't tight but the frenulum is. Stretching the frenulum, do you just have to pull the lower side of your foreskin forward until you feel it stretching or how do you know when it's stretching enough? I have to apply the cream on twice a day, in the morning and at night, should i wash the previous layer off before applying a new layer?
When i stretch in erect, the penis produces natural fluids ofc and it gets like sticky even if you wash it off with water, is it okay to wash your penis with soap before applying the cream? Man, you got yourself confused over this. Firstly, pulling back isn't going to get you very far.
Start doing what we recommend. The reason we recommend it is that it works. Five minutes is fine at least twice a day. Apply the cream to the tight ring and the frenulum only, very sparingly, and rub it in completely. No need to wash it before applying, but don't shower right after applying or you'll defeat the purpose.
Do not use soap inside your foreskin-EVER. Unless you are planning to receive oral sex, the stickiness won't hurt anything. Your foreskin should be covering up whatever is in there anyway. Yes, stretch the frenulum as well. Directions are on the same page as the other directions and you are ready to use the two finger method. Add at least five more minutes to each session to do the frenulum. Also, after each time you pee, do that frenulum stretch.
There is no advantage to stretching with an erection, so just do it in the flaccid state. Let me know how this works for you. Where are you located? I've just read that stretching with the pulling back method gives a more uniform foreskin a more normal looking foreskin with the final result? The thing is, i have "grower" type of penis, so i don't know how much it will help to stretch in flaccid especially with the two finger method.
To be honest though i kind of prefer the pulling back method, as it is much easier to determine the max tension with the stretching of the skin, but i also see the downside of this method, as you can only get it as loose as your glans is wide. And again, for me it all goes down to the grower type of penis, and the ease that comes with the pulling back method.
You also mention that this method isn't going to get you far, but urologists recommend the pulling back method though o. O I only use soap to clean outside the foreskin. The thing is that, the stickiness actually gets on the outside of the foreskin with i apply the cream. And with the application of the cream, there really is no tight ring flaccid and erect , my foreskin is just a bit tight in erect no ring. I just read in an official site from my country written by special doctors, that you apply from the end of the foreskin down to where the glans are marked through the skin.
What we recommend will have no effect upon how your foreskin looks. This is about getting it to retract easily.
In reading comments of other sites, you are confusing yourself. As I said, we recommend the methods because they get results. Not sure how much experience your urologist has had in this area, but we have been around a long time getting results.
If you're getting the cream on the outside of your foreskin, you're not following my directions. Apply it only to the tight ring, which is on the inside, and rub it in completely. If there were no tight ring, you wouldn't be having retraction issues.
It's a normal part of the anatomy, so it's there. It's called the frenar band. You came here for advice, and you were given advice which gets results. If you wish to have result, at least try doing what is advised. The special doctors who wrote the article may or may not have had experience and could very well be writing from theory.
Everyone has theories, and that is one reason why so many guys such as you get circumcised. Also, the urologist i went to told me that stretching the foreskin back would also automatically stretch the frenulum. Meh, i am just being a hypochondriac now, i just realized that i am making a much bigger deal of this than it actually is.
Well, I am fascinated to know that there are European sites explaining concepts of stretching tight and difficult-to-retract foreskins. We haven't heard much of such sites; presumably they are not English-language.
Equally fascinating is to hear about urologists with the sheer competence to advise stretching rather than simply profiteering by offering mutilating surgery as seems to be the pattern in Anglophone countries and most notably the USA.
Nevertheless we advise a particular process of stretching based on first principles which is designed to be the most effective , which is particularly important as there is a substantial risk of fellows "giving up" on stretching when it does not seem to be achieving the desired result, and consequently being susceptible to the offer of truly mutilating surgery.
The first principle is that the skin - or other connective tissue - will grow according to the need to fit a certain dimension at rest , that is, a "snug" fit to what is needed most of the time and sufficient elastic recoil to cope with extremes of movement.
When we refer to "stretching", what we mean is that we need the skin to actually grow to the new dimension, so we must induce the skin to "know" that it needs to fit something larger - exactly as happens while the body in general grows in youth, or accommodates the development of obesity later, as it clearly can. To do this, it is necessary to apply a tension for as much of the time as possible to emulate "natural" growth of the underlying body part, and to maximise that tension.
Since the foreskin needs to be relatively loose for what is considered "normal" retraction, and loose enough to slip back and forth during erection to facilitate easy thrusting during intercourse, it is not sufficient to have it "only just" retract and to achieve this looseness it is necessary to stretch to a greater dimension than just a "fit" to the erect penis diameter. In addition , the firmness of an erect penis is generally insufficient to provide optimum tension to effect a stretch and as you have noted stretching is indeed, not much of a "turn on" in itself , it is quite difficult to maintain an erection for any significant time whilst doing this.
Of course it is the "natural" means of stretching the foreskin opening, to retract by itself during erections, particularly the frequent, prolonged and regular erections during sleep, but growth by this means occurs over the many years of childhood and adolescence.
For whatever reason, in a proportion of men such as yourself, the foreskin "resists" that normal process, and the foreskin is forced to elongate to accommodate those erections rather than dilate. By the same token, if the foreskin has not stretched by retraction already , it stands to reason that it is less likely to respond to further exercises by the same method. And that is why what we advise here, is the "two fingers inside" method by which it is possible to apply much more tension and for much longer periods.
Even better is to use the "flesh tunnels" such as offered by "Phimocure" which need not apply quite as much tension, but can be used to apply tension continuously and apply that first stretching principle to the maximum.
For either stretching "exercise", the intent is to use such tension as becomes uncomfortable and may remain uncomfortable for a while after , but is sensibly short of actually tearing the skin, and to hold this for as many minutes as practical - generally limited by fatigue in the hands and arms - on each occasion, resting only as absolutely necessary.
As to the betamethasone ointment is the preferred form, by the way , when you get the two fingers inside you can identify exactly which part is tight, or when you retract you can see the tight band constricting your penile shaft. That tight band which is indeed, the "inside" of the foreskin, not the outside, so applying it on the outside is entirely useless is the only part to which you should be applying the betamethasone because that is the only part that needs stretching.
You most certainly do not want it on any other part, so you should not apply it any more generally and you should apply only such a tiny amount as completely rubs into the skin and disappears - if you can feel it as "sticky" you have clearly applied far too much. Twice a day is good; apply it only after stretching so that the stretching process is not dispersing it to the wrong areas. Because you will not be applying too much, you will not need to consider whether it might which it does not need to be washed off and you should absolutely not be using soap on any part of your foreskin, or any other product advertised for "cleaning".
I doubt a "moisturiser" is of any value other than as a lubricant which does help the stretching. And there is no "program" of stretching. You just do it - persistently - until you achieve the desired result and then for a further month in order to "set" the new dimensions into the skin.
Well i live in a country with free healthcare and such, so maybe that is the reason why urologist initially refrain from surgery. The prefered method by urologists in my country though, is to perform a frenuloplasty which does not actually remove any tissue, my urologist told me that this surgery is quite a little routine surgery, where you cut the frenulum granting more space for retraction, then you stitch it together with water desolvable sitches.
This method has also seemed to work on cases with phimosis, according to what i've read in a netdoctor forum in my country maybe it does seem a bit logic? As for the stretching goes, it seems like somewhat a mix from what i read on userbased forums, here and on the medical site.
Writing this makes me wonder whether the US have something simliar online? And reading how you AND other people on other userbased forums talk about how the doctors in the US have a "desire" to offer surgery and are first willing to offer prescribed creams like betamethasone when you litterally beg them for it. Kind of makes me wonder if my urologist and my normal doctor are great or a free healthcare system is great. Sorry for grammar, i'm a bit tired. You are to some extent correct in that in countries with "free" healthcare, the payment a doctor gets from performing a circumcision is sensibly made quite minimal so that there is little incentive for the profiteering that goes on in the US and such, so they are much less likely to advise it.
The problem - which is reported here every so often - is that as surgery, it results in a scar , and scars tend to contract so that unless you also stretch the scar as it heals by at least, frequent retraction , it may end up no better than before the surgery. It is an interesting detail that balanoposthitis which may contribute to phimosis, is most often caused by attempts at "cleaning" and the use of soap or the noxious "bubble bath" in children rather than simply retracting to the extent easily possible at any given age and rinsing with warm water showers being much more hygienic.
