Ive been to see my doctor who prescribed betamethasone 1%. i used that for 2-3 weeks while stretching. and still nothing.
Im now at my witsend and now seriously considering alteration (circumcision) I DONT want to do that though.
Has anyone had this issue, can anyone help me...im desperate to keep my foreskin.
stretching and creams dont seem to be working.
(btw i started stretching in December, its now mid June)
Please give me advice.
You've also been trying alternatives.
That's good. But you've also discovered that most items you purchase don't work.
Stretching might, but it's a long road.
You've talked with your doctor and he's given you something to help with the pain of stretching. Good.
But still you're thinking of circumcision.
I'm surprised that your doctor hasn't mentioned a "dorsal slit" instead of circumcision.
Ask them next time you see them if this isn't a half step short of complete circumcision.
Yeah, ive done alot of research (8 Months of it haha)
Ive researched alot, and also about the dorsal slit.
its not very keen on the eye though. If im going to have an operation then I might aswell have the whole 9 yards.
Doctors in the UK want you in and out of their office as quick as possible. (I think you are allocated five minutes per session...thats free medical for you)
Ive decided that im going to give it one more month with extensive stretching and using the cream again, if that doesnt work then I will have to go to the extreme.
If anyone has advice on a better way to avoid it, or stretching techniques they used that worked, Im all ears!
I still think this might be a better solution than a complete circumcision, as many man are now expressing regret that they had the one-way procedure done, (or done to them before they could object as an infant).
As for a short five minute interview with the doctor, I would insist that you get as long as it takes to address your problem or concern.
And if you aren't satisfied after 5 minutes, then I'd find another doctor or reschedule.
I had partial phimosis (tight foreskin when erect)
I am now 25 and through sexual experience, masturbation and pulling the foreskin back slightly further every now and again, when erect, it is not as tight as it was.
Please read the response in the other thread where you posted this.
