No there hasn't: As far as I know. This would require a double blinded prospective study of significant # of men, 1/2 who consumed aspartane on regular basis & 1/2 who don't. Can see no reason why phimosis could be caused by aspartane. Would seriously question anyone who has made such claims. Unfortunately, there are all too many false assertions made about such occurrences i.e. from vaccines. Always question! ...Read more
What's the best circumcision style on adults? High and tight? Are there any pros to removing frenulum? I have a phimosis.
