husband has phimosis, please read & help
as long as i have known him, my husband has phimosis. he can pull back his foreskin when he's flaccid, but when he's erect, it won't go down more than a centimeter maybe. he didn't even know this was a problem, as oddly enough no other woman brought it up. as a result his penis develops a bad smell, even though he washes it in the bathtub daily. also, his sexual sensation is hindered, even though he disagrees with me, because i don't see how he can experience the full sexual sensation if his head is covered during sex or oral sex.
he went to the doctor, and the doctor gave him betamethasone steroid cream and told him to stretch the foreskin. he did it once a day for one week and then stopped. it helped the foreskin slide down evne more when flaccid, but made no difference when erect. he asked the doctor for a urologist referral, and the doctor refused, claiming "you're not getting circumcised." (he has an HMO, so i thikn they are just trying to keep their costs down.) i told him to call back again, and he did, and the doctor is supposed to call h im back, but i doubt he will get the referral still.
i have read the stretching post on here...but is it possible it may not work for some men? or did we not do it for long enough? we only stretched for a week using the techniques posted here. do you think this is a case that can be fixed at home with stretching since he only has the issue when erect, or does he need surgery? he doesnt go online, so thats why im posting for him. any help would be appreciated. this is new to me, as all my boyfriends before him were circumcised.
