Phimotic ring expansion but no progress

TLDR Phimotic ring getting bigger, but its not exposing more of the glans???

Hi so I've been stretching now for a week with q tips, sticking two in and their pulling them apart. Once I pull them apart a tight ring forms and this is indeed getting much larger and quickly.

However post stretching I have just tried to retract now, and the hole that would usually form over my peehole and expose the glans has actually stayed the same size even though the 'phimotic ring' has expanded

This has left me extremely confused so I then got a pen and marked the ring while I was stretching it. Then when I pulled back I can see that it is nowhere near where the skin meets the glans.

I really don't feel comfortable posting a photo at this point but if you think its necessary I guess I will.

I have heard that theres another thing called the frenulum but I believe that controls how far the skin can go down the shaft once the foreskin's actually been retracted and in my case I feel like mine is flexible (I can pull the skin far away from the head)

Thanks,

Have you tried fingers?

If you're doing your stretching four times per day and applying a good firm tug, you will get results unless there is a yeast infection. That is usually accompanied by cracking of the skin, so it's probably not a problem in your case. I suspect you just aren't putting in sufficient time. You may also get better results by pulling the opening apart with your fingers. The How to Stretch page has illustrations of what to do.

At this stage, it's too early to detect a frenulum problem.

Weird

it's too small to fit a finger in currently. Stretching 3-4 times a day using a steroid and Canasten. Holding for at least 5 minutes.

I think it's got to do with the way the q tips pulll on the skin while they stretch because after 30 minutes it showed progress and looked normal (this extra portion of skin under the ring dissapeared.
