How Long Does It Take To Restore?




"The time it takes to recover the glans varies. The factors that influence the nonsurgical stretching methods include: how much shaft skin remains after circumcision, how diligent and persistent one is with stretching, and the amount of foreskin coverage desired. For these reasons, some men achieve restoration' after months, while for others, it can take several years. 

Since the process of restoration can be lengthy and involved, many men find it helpful to join a support group for the technical and moral support offered by such a group. See our NORM Locations page for a group near you."

Your Response


I have been using a jess extender for 3 months nou and notice my foreskin is slowly restoring. I am cut (did it myself some years ago). Feels fantastic and looking forward to full restoration.

Mikey266, you're a walking contradiction since you claim circumcision is so beneficial, yet you restored yourself in your early 20's. Not even you believe the misinformation you are spreading. If you did, you wouldn't have restored.

It seems the anti-circ activists love to promote the idea tha circumcision is dangerous and useless. Well is it? First, if we lived in a perfect world<br />
withought harmful viruses etc.and if body parts such as a foreskin never caused a person any problems, then maybe we could consider circumcision harmfull<br />
and useless. Sorry but its not a perfect world. Viruses such as HIV,Herpes and HPV all have an easier time entering the inner surface of the foreskin<br />
either through small tares in the lining or because of the immune response from such cells as Langerhan. Unfortunately an immune response to a virus such as <br />
HIV and Herpes is pretty much the same as the Trojan horse, and once its in its there to stay.<br />
<br />
As we all know, a number of studies show each of these viruses to be more common in the uncircumcised. Circumcision is not a cure all but it is considered<br />
by many to be a preventive measure. Yes condoms provides protection from these viruses, but you are living in a fantasy world if you think for one second<br />
that people always use them.<br />
<br />
Have you ever checked into unplanned pregnancies for example, especially among young people, i think this speakes for itself.<br />
<br />
From day one after an infant is circumcised, benefits start. UTI's are less frequent for the first year of life, phimosis, paraphimosis, balanitis, thrush,<br />
cancer, frenulum tares (which can be very painful involving a lot of blood ) can all be either reduced or eliminated for a lifetime. As for ceanliness,<br />
well, thats a no brainer.<br />
<br />
******, and fermented urine can form under the foreskin within a couple hours especially if small amounts of urine get trapped and start mixing with oils<br />
and shedded skin. Many reports describe the smell as repulsive.<br />
<br />
If anything can be done to help give someone and better defence against any these problems then maybe it should be considered more and parents should start<br />
requesting it more often.<br />
<br />
If those of you who believe it should be the right of the individual to make this decision when he is an adult, instead why not give your son all the <br />
information he needs to partially or fully restore his foreskin, or at least keep the glans and upper shaft covered through stretching, taping etc.. according<br />
to anti-circ activists there are a lot of men/boys doing this and are happy with the results. <br />
<br />
So if you can get all the benefits from your at birth circumcision for the first part of your life, say until your late 20's and 30's then go ahead and try<br />
restoring..(even keeping the head and upper shaft coverered for periods of time will increase sensitivity ) many of these guys say the sensation increases<br />
and sex etc. is better or different at least, many of them also say that restored men (or newly resensitized) are better off than uncircumcised men<br />
because they can compare the differences and appreciate it more than if they were uncircumcised all their lives. Its like having a totally different<br />
feeling penis and /or looking from then on a whole new enjoyable experience for the rest of your life....almost like a brand new start.<br />
<br />
So being circumcised at birth (best time done) then living for 25-45 years of your life, and getting all the benefits from it then increasing your sensitivity<br />
and appreciating it more, even moreso than an uncircumcised male, then you get the best of both worlds. sounds like the plan to me..<br />
<br />
So don't feel as though you were violated because of being circumcised at birth (withought your permission).. instead realize all the benefits it has provided for you<br />
plus the sex and ************ during your younger years were pretty damn good:) I never heard of a young circumcised guy complain. (If he does its mostly<br />
in his mind...mostly because of the negative untruths the anti-circ groups spread everywhere.)<br />
<br />
Reap all the benefits of being circumcised and regaining sensitivity and appearance later in life and be greatfull..<br />
and pass on a circumcision to any son we have in the future..<br />
Its worked for me:) ask any questions you need to.<br />
take care<br />

Thank you RestoringTally for sharing your experience with method 2. I'm so happy for you that it is working for you! Yep, there's benefits to even partial restoration while still in the process of restoring. I hope it's good encouragement for you to continue with your success.

Before I started restoring my foreskin I had tight erections. After a year of manual tugging with method 2, I had full flaccid coverage. I am a grower so I am still working on erect coverage, but I received a lot of the benefits of foreskin restoration by having flaccid coverage.

Erect coverage?

Some men are growers, some are showers. As a grower, my penis is much shorter when I am flaccid than when I am erect. Showers do not have a significant length difference between flaccid and erect.

I quickly gained full coverage at my flaccid length. But my erect length is twice as long. I want to have my foreskin cover my glans when erect.

Thank you so much hooded for sharing your story! Here's the link for those interested in reading it:<br />

That's what makes EP so great; we can share things here that we wouldn't be able to elsewhere. That's what EP is about. This is the perfect outlet for things like that.

I'm looking forward to your story Hooded. I'm a shy person too and know that that can be a hard thing to do.

Thank you for that encouragement, Hooded! I really hope I have been able to protect some boys from losing some of their healthy functioning private parts.<br />
<br />
I also wish to give hope to those that feel devastated from being robbed of a whole intact body. While restoration won't bring back the original equipment, it still can greatly improve a man's circumcised condition.<br />
<br />
I'm sorry your six month old son had his prepuce forcefully retracted. That can be very damaging and is very painful. I'm glad he was able to heal okay. It's sad that it's necessary to write on every health form that the child's parents forbid circumcision AND forceful foreskin retraction. <br />
<br />
You are certainly welcome! Thank you. :)

Consa, I am touched by your calling me "so dainty, respectable, and feminine". That was very kind of you. My interest came after one of my sons was circumcised against my wishes.

Rose, how did you come to take an interest in this extremely tender masculine topic? In all other respects here on EP, you are so dainty, respectable, and feminine...

So very glad to hear it! You are an extremely lucky man to be intact!

i will keep mine as genuine. lol
