In brief: Phimosis cure?

If you are talking about circumcision, the effect is inmediate.
If you are talking about pain and discomfort, depends on your threshold for pain, 1-2 weeks. Resuming intercourse 4-6 weeks.

In brief: Circ / steroid cream

Circumcision is the absolute cure for phimosis and then works for all purposes once healing is complete after 2 - 3 weeks.
Prescription strength steroid cream applied twice daily to tight area of foreskin, only works in absence of scarring. Will take 1 - 3 months & later may well recur.
