Phimosis / Sensitive glans

Hello,

In my mid teens now, never retracted before. I've read the stretching instructions and am doing this. It's getting better. But reading about para-phimosis has scared me a lot. I'm afraid to retract even when flaccid, it just scares me. I'm confident that physically, I can get it behind, but i'm just so scared about that happening.

Does anyone have any advice on how to de-sensitize the glans? Mine is very sensitive after 15 years of being covered.

Also, my younger brother, who is 12. He has a few mental problems. I just want to know if it's likely that he'd have this too? I fear for him is all.

Thanks,

Re: Phimosis / Sensitive glans

search for paraphimosis, without the hyphen, under Men's Health. I wrote a really comprehensive answer there.
the hypersensitivity passes about 4-6 weeks after you can retract, and do retract regularly.
your brother may never have the problem. perhaps someone attempted to retract you before you were ready, and that's why you have phimosis. he may already be retracting...I was at 4. ask him, and take it from there.

Re: Phimosis / Sensitive glans

Try not to be paranoid about paraphimosis. My instructions tell you what to do to get the foreskin forward again and it's unlikely anyway. Otherwise keep stretching with the two-finger method until you are sure the opening is wide enough.

Re: Phimosis / Sensitive glans

Oh my god! I did it when flaccid! Wasn't hard to get it back either! Haha. This is fantastic! I was expecting it to be really, smegma-y and dirty, but it looked fine?

I'm beside myself with joy.

Re: Phimosis / Sensitive glans

Is it normal that, obviously when flaccid, under the foreskin is quite dry, so sometimes when I do the stretching exercise, then push it back, it's a little painful. I think this is because of when it's dry, and the sensitive glans. Does this sound normal?

Re: Phimosis / Sensitive glans

Sensitivity is normal whether dry or moist. Try the shower spray and using lube to touch it. The more you touch it the better it will get.

Re: Phimosis / Sensitive glans

Awesome. Thank you so much!

Just tried doing it again and was there for about 4 seconds, then an erection randomly started forming. Pushing it back was harder, but got it back. That was a worry.

So. It's pretty difficult to get paraphimosisised? (hehe). I mean. I'm getting a fair way back whilst erect now, but don't want to go too close as, when flaccid at least, it kind of roll's over the last centimetre. Sorry about all the questions.

I'm scared of doing it now in case I get an erection whilst it is behind.

Re: Phimosis / Sensitive glans

Well don't push it too much. Just stretch with the two finger method for a few weeks more until there's no risk,

Re: Phimosis / Sensitive glans

Will do! Thanks for the advice.

I'm in no real rush. But want it sorted. If that makes sense.

Wow I can't believe I did it.
