I'm the same guy who has the " Phimosis :-\ " thread. Things seemed to get a little better. I'm retracting alot more, I'm stretching and stuff. When flaccid, I can't get it completely over the head, but it's a lot better then it was. Today, I think I might of teared a little bit. It's made my ring even tighter, and even harder to retract when flaccid. Please tell me this isn't permanent, because this is breaking my heart. I have becomed extremely depressed over this, my girlfriend wants to do stuff with me, but I can't. I have a few questions, please, someone answer them:1. How should I be masturbating? I tend to put my index finger inside the ring and move it around clockwise. Should I stroke my dick? Does masturbating this way make it worse?2. What happens when I tear, and the ring gets tighter?3. Is there anyway to speed up this process? I'm not really impatient, just I have a negative feel right now because of the tightness, and I feel like I've wasted a lot of time.4. Cleaning is almost impossible, since I can't retract over my head. What should I do?Any tips or anything will help so much, please guys, I've becomed so depressed over this.
Please, it's killing me
If you're using your finger inside the foreskin to stimulate things for masturbating, then doing the same to help clean will work as well. Some tearing is not a problem, if you're not using lubrication give that a try. I'd also work on masturbating by moving up and down on the shaft. You don't have to retract your foreskin in order to do that, however, it may help work on some stretching as well. If you focus your "work" on the shaft through stroking, you shouldn't have trouble masturbating "successfully" and it'll be different than what you're doing now, probably feeling different to. Keep working with that foreskin, are you following the strecthing tips we've got posted? If not, try that as well. I suspect that its tigther now because of some swelling and that will go away soon. Be patient and keep working buddy, things will be fine! No need to be depressed over this, you've just gotten started and you're not wasting time. By the way, if you and your g/f want to do things, why not let her help? It would remove some of the fear you have about what may happen at some point anyway!
