Worried by a 'ring' under my foreskin
Four days ago I had a circumcision for medical reasons.
Over the last day and half I am getting an erection in my sleep.
The wound was healing nicely but you can imagine having an erection is pretty painful.
Is there any way of stopping getting an erection?
I'm sorry to hear about your problem, but I think we can help.
First of all it will really help if your bladder is not full as a full bladder always stimulates erections.
Don't drink any fluid after 6pm and empty your bladder before going to bed.
It would also be a good idea to wear fairly tight underpants to reduce any friction against the sheets on your bed and to inhibit an erection should it begin.
Another trick you might like to employ is the application of cold water or ice cubes, as this will quickly dampen your ardour if it arises as it were.
The good news is that is erections are occurring, there is obviously fairly good healing taking place, as too much discomfort or pain would prevent tumescence.
To speed recovery enjoy a soak in a hot salt bath followed by dabbing the wound dry. I hope this helps.
