What Are The Treatments For Phimosis?

Phimosis treatment


Phimosis is a condition where the foreskin is too tight to be pulled back over the head of the penis (glans). The basic tight foreskin in front of the penis being that cannot be pulled back is called Phimosis or paraphimosis.

In other words, Phimosis refers to the inability to retract the distal (prepuce) foreskin over the glans penis. Physiologic phimosis occurs naturally in new-born males.

It describes a condition in which the foreskin is too tight to be pulled back over the head or glans of the penis. It is common to be observed with uncircumcised penises.

Phimosis could lead to inflammation of the penis, called balanitis, or inflammation of both the glans and the foreskin, called balanoposthitis.

Who will get Phimosis?

The uncircumcised penis is prone to get affected with Phimosis. It is observed more in boys than in men. The men who fall ill to Phimosis could have got it either by self disturbances or sexually transmitted diseases.

Repeated urinary tract infections, foreskin infection, repeated rough handling of the foreskin, 

Foreskin trauma are the main causes of Phimosis in older boys or younger men. Old age men could also fall ill to phimosis but it is rare compared to what the percentage is occurring in young age men and boys.

Treatment for Phimosis

Letting it go itself

The natural way of losing Phimosis is waiting till the penis comes back to its normal shape or condition. Most Phimosis occurs due to friction or imbalance arises during sexual intercourse. However, the elastic behavior of the penis in changing its shape and form from flaccid to erection gives it access to compromise from Phimosis-like conditions.

The easy-going or temporary phimosis lasts for two days to two weeks normally and during the course, there is no pain also. As Phimosis is a condition not to be able to pull back the foreskin behind which is the need for sexual intercourse but not urinary excretion, it generally does not even make sense to the person who does not think about sex.


Masturbation is the natural way to upright the penile deviations or dislocations. As masturbation involves the to and fro motion of the foreskin which is an exact opposite criterion to what the condition Phimosis shows up, the clearly understood attempt of masturbation could relieve the foreskin to get relief from its attachment to the glans.

Of course, masturbation could only help temporary phimosis or the condition at hand.

Sexual intercourse

Sexual intercourse involves the penis insertion into the anal cavity or vaginal cavity which are the most comfortable material in the whole world. A hygienic or not infected Phimosis could be cured with slow and steady sexual intercourse.

Circumcised penis

This is another gentle way to get rid of Phimosis. In general, circumcision is attempted way earlier to any infection or disorder, just as a precautionary measure to stay relaxed during sexual intercourse.

A penis is a combination of foreskin covering the glans penis. The actual penis muscles reside inside the foreskin. This foreskin accumulates indefinitely at the tip of the penis. To avoid future worries, few people circumcise the foreskin presented at the forehead.

Most of the penises undergo discomfort during its insertion into the vaginal cavity or anal cavity due to either its thick or more elaborate foreskin prelimed over the actual penile body called glans or shaft, or the actual perimeter of the penis is more than that a vaginal cavity could accept.

However, vagina is a solid elastic structure capable of giving birth to a human child which would naturally be bigger than the size the penis, it only needs to be understood that any length or size penis could be inserted into vagina but the only difference is how far the penis is feeling comfort or easiness during the intercourse.

Circumcision is an ultimate destination to penises that compound larger diameter at the forehead of the penis resulting in an inability to grab the foreskin to and fro which is a mandatory need to organize orgasm during the sexual intercourse or spill out the semen from inside. 

Circumcision helps the penis to relieve itself from excessive foreskin gathering over the glans whereas, after successful dry up of circumcision, the penis looks like a sharp pin-pointed object with the glans looking outwards. The cone-like shape in front of the penis body helps it to enter the vaginal cavity easily and make an appropriate to and fro motion to the still leftover foreskin to ejaculate.

The circumcised penis gets easily interfered with during sexual intercourse. The uncircumcised penis is prone to frictions developed due to various conditions. These frictions unexpectedly cut the foreskin, most of the time leading to bleeding. As usual, the uncircumcised penis is a great source of Phimosis.

Take Away 

The Phimosis that is out of control could be removed with the help of doctors in getting treatment through surgeries. Depending on the depth of Phimosis, surgery could be minor or major.
