At this stage I am now using a condom because I fear it may stretch and cause pain.
In a short period of time, depending on the type of phimosis, there is a recovery of foreskin elasticity until the conditions preceding phimosis onset are restored.
I have had it in for about 3 hours with no pain.
I always added some each day, if there was no pain.
Some are even circumcised.
In severe cases, circumcision may be recommended.
