Phimosis is the inability to pull the foreskin back past the glans of the penis. These condition results because of the tightening of the foreskin making it difficult to be pulled back. In simple terms, Phimosis can be explained as a tight rubber band of the foreskin covering the tip of the penis and preventing full retraction.
How Do You Diagnose Phimosis?
Generally, cases of phimosis go untreated and unnoticed until one experiences pain in the process of sex or masturbation. In most cases, the condition is discovered almost at the adult stage of life. People tend to go with surgery as the only treatment at this stage, which is not true. One generally learns about one’s condition after observing and knowing about the structure of the penis. Thus, discussing your condition in the early stage with your elders and friends serves as a medium to soon cure the phimosis.
Causes Of Phimosis
Phimosis in toddlers is totally normal as the foreskin remains attached for the first few years. Till the age of 3years, the foreskin remains intact, and as time passes, the foreskin loosens.
Phimosis may be caused by factors like
- Poor hygiene.
- Glans Infection.
- Retracting the foreskin forcibly.
- Smegma set up.
Does Phimosis Affect Penus Size And Growth?
The foreskin is the skin that covers the glans and consists of two parts. The outer hard layer protecting the glans, and the inner layer produces secretion and allows the glans to be moist.
Phimosis is all about the non-retraction of the foreskin back past the glans. Thus what is removed in surgery is the excess of skin that surrounds the glans.
The foreskin can make your penis look slightly girthier when it is flaccid. When the penis erects, the foreskin retracts and disappears. Thus it won’t affect your penis size when it’s erect.
Does Phimosis Cause Premature Ejaculation?
People have divided opinions regarding premature ejaculation due to phimosis. The one finding phimosis responsible for speedy ejaculation says 4000 nerve endings in male glans and 20,000 nerve endings in the foreskin. And these nerve endings get extra sensitive due to the restricted movement of the foreskin only on the glans causing premature ejaculation.
While others say, phimosis has prevented them from achieving climax as the foreskin was very tight. The tightness would contain the movement of the foreskin across the surface of the penis. So they were thrusting for ages but never able to achieve bliss.
How To Increase Sexual Pleasure if Phimosis?
The best way to increase sexual pleasure is to use Condoms. The condoms cover the penis and thus prevent force push on the penis. If you are not comfortable using a condom, then lubrication of the penis with petroleum jelly, like vaseline can come in very helpful. They reduce the friction thus making sex more fun.
