Tight Foreskin Problems

Normally, the foreskin in men will develop during early adulthood by gaining the ability to be retracted from the head of the penis.

In children, tight foreskin problems can be normal. In adult men, it only becomes a problem if the foreskin still has not retracted in early adulthood.

This condition is called phimosis in the medical literature.

Symptoms of tight foreskin problems

Tight foreskin problems have many symptoms, but the most noticeable one is that there is either pain when one tries, or it is outright impossible to retract the foreskin from the head of the penis.

This can of course be difficult in a relationship, as problems with foreskin retraction can lead to dissatisfaction from either partner.

This might reduce the man’s ability to enjoy intercourse and at the same time might discomfort their partner as well.

The effects of tight foreskin problems

Tight foreskin problems can also have effects that are more psychological for men who suffer from this condition. It can give them serious self-esteem and confidence issues.

They may feel inadequate when it comes to lovemaking and this can cause depression or stress for either partner in the relationship.

Tight foreskin problems can be an embarrassing condition for men to deal with in the face of their partners during most intimate moments.

What can be done?

There are many ways to treat tight foreskin problems and phimosis. A lot of people believe that circumcision and other forms of surgery are the most effective, but increasing amounts of doctors are coming out and saying that they prefer and recommend alternative remedies for tight foreskin problems.

Surgery can be painful and invasive and all of the available types can cause significant anguish. Circumcision is the complete removal of the frenulum, but dorsal and ventrical slitting also works and is just as painful.

Alternative solutions such as medicinal topical cream, exercises and other treatments are all effective and safe.

Steroid topicals

There are steroid based medicinal topical creams that doctors can recommend for the treatment of tight foreskin problems, or phimosis.

These topical creams have been used for many decades and have been shown to effectively help the frenulum gain the ability to become retractible.

Exercises and programs

If you are not really into using steroid based creams for any reason, then there are also exercises that you can do to make your frenulum retractible.

A good doctor will advise you to be careful when you are masturbating to simulate real intercourse by moving your hand up and down the shaft of your penis in a rhythmic, but gentle and relaxing way.

Some people have even caused themselves phimosis by masturbating in a non standard way.

Some men masturbate by lying face down on a bed and imagining they are on top of their partner and because of this their penis and frenulum could end up in a state of phimosis because of the stress they were under.

One of the most prominent doctors in the study of men’s problems has said that he would always recommend to his patients changing to a standard way of masturbation and that this has a very reliable way of correcting phimosis.

Alternative medicines

There are also many herb-based supplements and other products such as creams and even herbal tea which can all have a positive effect on the sexual health of men.

There are a range of herbs that will improve your physical energy, improve your testosterone levels, give you longer and harder erections, make it easier for you to get an erection and some also boost the production of sperm and semen so that you can be more fertile.
