Suffering from phimosis. Will stretching help to solve the condition and for how much duration ?

Hi, I recently discovered that I have phimosis . I researched online and found out that stretching may solve this condition. However, I have been stretching for around two weeks, and there is little improvement. I don t want to take the surgery if absolutely necessary. Is it that I should stretch more often? I sometimes forget to stretch and sometimes only under 3 minutes per day.

Stretching might help in children but not in adults.
Stop stretching it as it may result in splitting of foreskin.
Best for you is to go for circumcision.
Shed your inhibitions and go for surgery.
