The Risks of Circumcision Surgery

Learn more about the risks of circumcision surgery and the natural method I found to cure my phimosis

Table of Contents

Fortunately, modern methods have been discovered that let men cure their phimosis naturally rather than resorting to surgery. This means getting a circumcision isn't necessary for most phimosis cases.

Only 1 in 5,000 men with phimosis need surgery to cure their condition.1
These cases are limited to when the phimosis is caused by the glans and the foreskin adhering together.

What Is Circumcision Surgery Like?

Before getting a circumcision (which cannot be reversed) it's important to know what to expect. The two YouTube videos below show what circumcision surgery is like (click the image to go to YouTube).

I included these videos because searching for "circumcision surgery" on YouTube gives you many poor-quality results to choose from. These two videos let you see what actual surgical operations look like.

The Risks of Long-term Surgical Side Effects

As you can see by watching the videos, circumcision surgery cuts off a part of the foreskin. For this reason, getting a circumcision involves potential long-term side effects.

Dysspermatism (the inability to ejaculate normally)
If the nerves that control ejaculation are damaged, or if the loss of sexual sensitivity is significant, you may suffer from the inability to ejaculate normally.2
This can become a major issue if you and your partner are trying to conceive.

Erectile dysfunction (the inability to have normal erections)
If the nerves that control erections are damaged, or if the surgeon had complications while stitching the upper and lower foreskin together, it may become impossible to have a normal erection.3

Loss of sexual sensitivity
The foreskin makes up a large part of the penis’s sensitivity. By cutting off part of your foreskin, you lose sensitivity and pleasure during sex.3

Issues with how the foreskin is stitched together could cause the penis to twist or bend, as well as the potential for and overly tight foreskin.4

Post-surgery Recovery

Avoid Having Sex
For two weeks after surgery, you should avoid having sex because it can pull apart the stitches.

Doctor Visits
You’ll have to visit your doctor two or three times after your operation for follow-ups and removing stitches.

Avoid Bathing
For one week after surgery, you should avoid taking baths.

The Non-surgical Way to Cure Your Phimosis

More and more men are turning to natural, non-surgical ways to cure their phimosis using a tool like Glansie.

Since phimosis is caused by having a tight phimotic ring, fixing the condition is as simple as using a phimosis tool to stretch out that ring.

How the foreskin should work
The foreskin has a double-layer structure. By widening the foreskin's opening, you can easily expose the glans.

Also, the human skin has the natural ability to stretch, so your foreskin's opening can be easily widened.

For example, the man pictured above is a member of the Suya tribe in the Amazon rainforest. The tribe is known for wearing lip plates about 10 cm (4 inches) in diameter in the lower lip.

Like their lip-stretching method, your foreskin's opening can be easily stretched. Once the opening is stretched as little 4 cm, the glans will be able to come out — no worries, no pain, NO CIRCUMCISION!

The world's first phimosis tool
There is an effective phimosis tool that worked for me called "Glansie."

It's been reported that 99.9% of Glansie users were able to cure their phimosis, and I'm one of them. Glansie says that you can cure your phimosis in as little as 3 days depending on the severity, but the average is 2 weeks.

As the world's first phimosis tool, it has been sold in over 30 countries since January 2000.

Once you get surgery, there's no turning back.

If you're thinking about getting a circumcision, you should definitely try Glansie first because they offer a no-risk, money-back guarantee.

There really is no advantage to getting a circumcision over stretching exercises. Glansie helps your foreskin to naturally retract.

When should you start treating your phimosis?

Considering normal male development, the glans typically come out between ages 12 and 18. This means there is no need to consider phimosis treatment until around age 15.5

You may feel that it's not necessary to treat your phimosis until you’re ready to have sex. From my experience, I would say that it's fine to wait until then because with a tool like Glansie, you can cure your condition within 2 weeks, regardless of your age.

With Glansie, phimosis is no longer a serious issue.
