    Note, this only happens when it's erect - I can pull my foreskin back with ease when it's flaccid.

    Whenever I retract my foreskin, I feel like it's somewhat tight (and because I've already read up on phimosis and paraphimosis, I quickly pull it back in case anything goes awry). However, the past few days I've tried adopting some stretching techniques - the frenulum stretch every time I go to the bathroom, and the finger stretch 10 minutes when I wake up and before I sleep and I think there's some improvement already (that is, it doesn't feel AS tight?).

    Am I perhaps delusional, or is it possible for stretching to have results that fast? Or is this feeling of slight constriction to be expected? If what I have is phimosis (I personally think that's what it is), then it's only mild.

    In any case, I've scheduled an appointment to see the GP on Monday, but I was just wondering if any of you guys had an idea or other tips on how to overcome this.
    I imagine circumcision would be a last resort kind of thing.

    Cheers for any kind of help, and hopefully this thread can be of some use for some other lads facing the same issue!

    You are doing the right thing and going to see the GP.

    Yep, given you can do this I'd expect you to be prescribed some steroid cream to help stretch your foreskin rather than whisked off to a surgeon.

    I've known I had phimosis since I was around 13, and it made me panic loads. I could not pull back when flaccid and my foreskin was attached to my glans in a small area. I've never actively stretched my foreskin to help the issue, only through masturbation and being careful. I have seen results over the years, the area of foreskin that was attached detached, and now I can comfortably pull back my foreskin when half-erect and clean properly without pain. I'm having something sent to my house called 'Phimocure', a silicone medical flesh-tunnel like instrument that helps resolve the issue without manually having to pull my foreskin back. I haven't left my parents home for uni yet nor am I sexually active, and even if they did check my packages, they are super relaxed around me and in regards to these sort of conditions, as they are surgeons themselves.
