What is a phimosis ring?
Phimosis rings are silicone rings made from medical grade silicone, that are used to hold the foreskin and prevent it from sliding further.
In a nutshell, these rings prevent your foreskin from retracting back and forth over the head of your penis. By serving as a bottleneck and constricting your foreskin, the phimosis ring ensures it does not open further.
Daily regimen to treat phimosis
Lubricate foreskin every day after shower with extra-virgin coconut oil. This keeps the foreskin hydrated.
Stretch foreskin using phimosis rings twice daily using the methodology described below
Apply Fore-stretch phimosis cream (before sleeping) to
loosen the foreskin & heal the cracks.
Clean groin area daily with ani-fungal-mild soap to keep the area clean and hygienic.
Find your phimosis ring size
Find the ring size that is most appropriate for you depending on how far you can stretch the foreskin. Choose based upon the tightness, the ring shouldn’t be too tight and shouldn’t be loose either.
We have all the sizes a human penis can possibly have, so fret not if you don’t immediately find your phimosis ring size. This involves some hit and trial, you gotta try the rings till you know which size fits best.
All the rings are numbered in millimeters so you can track your progress over time.
The ring sizes are 3mm, 4mm, 5mm, 6mm, 8mm, 10mm, 12mm, 14mm, 16mm, 18mm, 20mm, 22mm, 24mm, 26mm, 28mm, 30mm, 32mm, 34mm, 36mm, and 38mm.
Strecthing Exercise using phimosis rings
Step 1: Apply coconut oil on foreskin
Take small amount of castor oil or coconut oil and massage it all over the foreskin and especially on the prepuce. This is done to ensure foreskin and prepuce are well hydrated.
Step 2: Apply coconut oil on phimosis ring
Apply castor oil or coconut oil on the outer circumference of the phimosis ring. This removes any dirt on the ring and reduces friction on the foreskin as well.
It’s always safer to use natural products like extra-virgin coconut oil or extra virgin castor oil since foreskin is a sensitive part and unsafe oils can cause problems. Both these oil are anti-fungal & anti- inflammatory in nature.
Step 3: Retract the foreskin over glans and slide phimosis ring over it to finally set it under foreskin
Place your first finger and thumb over glans and try to slide the foreskin over glans as much as naturally possible.
The length till which you could slide the foreskin over is called the phimotic band (marked in black line).
Using the other hand, grab the phimosis ring of appropriate size and press the ring slightly against the glans to tilt it slightly and thereby fit it inside the phimotic band (or prepuce).
Step 4: Check for tightness of the ring & make sure it is comfortable.
The phimosis ring shouldn’t be too tight or too loose, it should fit perfectly. If the ring is loose then try to use a size bigger than the current ring size.
Furthermore, a tight ring can cause cracks on the foreskin and in case of cracks development, you wouldn’t be able to wear the rings for a few weeks and risk losing all the progress you have made till date.
If you’re using a ring bigger than 24mm, please refer the image on the next page to learn on how to use these rings safely.
Step 5: For bigger sized rings
The rings above 24mm are categorized into bigger-sized rings. These rings have a different style of wearing which is shown in images.
Furthermore, rings of sizes 30mm, 32mm, 34mm, 36mm, and 38mm have a special cut on one side of the ring to ensure easy and comfortable grip on foreskin.
The side on which the cut is present will be up and the side where the ring is continuous (no cut) will go under the foreskin.
