Phimosis and sex

Hiya,

I'm 18, and recently I've become sexually active. I've told her I have phimosis (self diagnosed mind you) and we've not spoken about it since, and it hasnt been a problem at all.

We've had intercourse 3 times now and I've noticed each time afterwards my foreskin is looser. I can now pull it back to show over half of the head where as before I could see very little.

I'm worried that if it continues to stretch, which I do hope it does since that would pressumably make circumcision unecessary, it could get stuck behind the head of my penis? A condition which I believe is called paraphimosis.

I'm not sure what to do about this, since I hear about people with phimosis stretching there foreskin as an alternative to circumcision, how do they prevent paraphimosis? I'm guessing my uh, "method", is pretty much the same as the stretching treatment.

Thanks for any responses.

you can add to your method by using steroid creams like betamethasone or clobetasol and stretching exercises or devices.you could also have a z-plasty which makes the opening of the foreskin bigger and prevents paraphimosis.

Thanks for the links. One thing that is worrying me from what I read is this sentence: "Take care to avoid premature retraction beyond the corona of the glans (glands) to avoid paraphimosis."

If I'm having sex and accidently retract beyond the corona... well that's not going to be good.
