    Currently I have been using these phimocure rings for almost three weeks, and I haven’t seen much progress, I started with three but that was loose to begin with so I jumped to four and it felt fine with a decent amount of tension and stretch. I have been on the fourth ring for about two weeks now, and it fits fine but whenever I remove the ring the opening of my foreskin just shrinks within a few minutes to square-one and it’s been like this for two weeks now. I’m not sure what’s wrong, it doesn’t seem like the opening or the ring is the tightest part, just below it is where I see a restriction when I try to retract.

    I also suspect you aren’t seating the ring properly. If you insert a finger, can you feel the frenar band by rolling the skin between your finger and thumb?

      I think you are right because before q-tips felt good I could feel the band giving resistance almost like it a very tight thread. Also when I insert the phimocure rings and I remove them I’ve realize the skin is bunching up more so I’m probably stretching the skin rather than the frenar band, so any advice on how to insert the rings properly, anyone have pictures, I’ve seen the video on YouTube a couple of times.

      It sounds like you are doing it right, you are pulling it back and letting the skin roll back over it. Can you see your phimotic ring, do you think the ring is going deep enough so it is being stretched?

      Are you able to push the ring in deeper, perhaps using a Q-tip or a chop stick?

      I think the phimotic ring is lower, because when I try to retract the skin around the opening folds over and just under it is where I see tension, I’m not sure if the phimocure rings is able to get down that low.

      Honestly I don’t even know, the first two pictures is the rings inserted and the third photo is a picture of the phimocure when tucked away, does it still stretch if I still leave the foreskin like that. Also just leave any critiques for me.

    I can’t insert a finger yet, I followed the video on YouTube I pull back the skin as far as it can go then I push the folded ring on the head of the penis until the skin rises around the ring

    The placement looks good. How many hours per day are they inserted?

      I started wearing them for an hour three times a day, still no major progress, then I was reading the phimosisjourney blog, and he said keep them in for aslong as you feel comfortable so I wore ring 4 which doesn’t give me an discomfort but gives a stretch and I would wear that for 3+ hours twice and day and still not much progress. I can’t tell if I have yeast or not.

      If there were yeast, all the activity from using the rings would have caused irritation. As a precaution you could try treating.

      That makes sense, however whenever I retract I could see tension right where I have scar tissue, I figured I got this from premature retraction aswell as frequent masturbation when I was younger.

    They do look like they are in right, do you have a pic that show what it’s like inside? Sometimes the ring sits on the phimotic band so maybe that is what is wrong?

      I submitted a reply, with images but it’s taking a while for it I get approved, however I don’t know how to continue anymore, I feel shamed that this isn’t working the way I intended.

      Have you tried moving up to ring 5 or you can’t yet?

    • #40444 Reply

      Alex

      Yes I can fit 5, perfectly fine after a bit of manual stretching and a tug, it feels like a proper stretch compared to four, but I usually keep it in for 30 mins to an hour to prevent damages. It not too bad to remove but it comes out with a bit of tension not too bad.

  • #40445 Reply

    Patrick

    Well maybe there is improvement since you can move up, you just don’t see it because it’s only small.

      It feels good but it’s difficult to remove sometimes

    Yeah here are pictures of it from the inside.

    You have them on right.

    i think I didn’t have the rings inserted deep enough before, it felt a lot different removing it when I had it deeper it felt stretched this time. It’s only been one day so let’s hope the best for the next coming weeks

    Have you tried inserting two rings at once, one stacked on top of the other?

    • #40541 Reply

      Alex

      <p style=”text-align: left;”>I’m not sure two would fit, as when I have one inserted the inner lip sits on the glans, and there isn’t enough room for the initial ring to go in further. I’m able to fit ring 5 in but it’s a bit tricky to remove I’ll wear that for an hour two-three times a day and I’ll end up wearing 4 to sleep.</p>

    So far this is the most I can retract when flaccid.

    Is that sore to do? Only time I was able to retract a small bit was after using ring 6.

      It isn’t sore at all, but it does take a bit of effort to retract that much but it isn’t crazy, I remember before when I never used used phimocure, I would never be able to do that, the glans would just squeeze out the phimotic ring. But I’m happy so far after realizing I didn’t have the rings seated low enough.

    You’re lucky. I stretched just a small bit yesterday and it’s sensitive/sore today. Not bad like but still.

      Just wondering when wearing the phimocure rings is it okay for the some of the skin to want to retract over the rings? Will it still stretch?

      Don’t know. Mine isn’t long enough for that
