My advice is to just go on the offensive. Don't sit around and wait for her to approach you- you approach HER. Say, hey cous- you are an OBGYN resident aren't you?  I'm curious- arent' OBs FEMALE specialists?  so what's the deal- why do they circumcise babies?  Do they do followup on babies too?  what's the complication rate with things like meatal stenosis and adhesions?  What is the rate of recircumcision?  Who does that?  What do you use for anesthesia I've heard that...
docdirector.geisheker@gmail.com    Please contact John Geisheker of Doctors Opposing Circumcision with the names of the doctors who gave you such awful advice.  They need to be re-educated and reprimanded.  They could have caused your kids harm (hopefully not) and they are still certainly passing this terrible advice onto other new unsuspecting parents- they need to be STOPPED!!   http://www.doctorsopposingcircumcision.org/info/info-forcedretraction.html 
Hi- I'm another Indiana mom, and I understand your frustration.  I don't live near Indy, so I can't help you with a ped- but maybe you can ask around on a local AP moms group or LLL and see if there are any doctors those mom like. As for what you uncovered during your search... seriously- CHILD ABUSE... a REALLY serious problem... this is not just a case of not "clicking" with a doctor's style... you have discovered doctors who are habitually doing serious harm to...
#1- Do not confuse a sexual preference for circumcised men and circumcision fetish- they are not the same thing.    The majority of people who say they prefer a circumcised penis on a man are NOT circumcision fetishists.  They are typically just conditioned to think that the circumcised penis is normal, and prefer what is normal to them.  This is simple conditioning, not a fetish.    Some gay men may be attracted to a partner who has a body similar to their own-...
Oh Azik'smom!  I am so happy to hear this!  Congratulations on the birth of your son- and congratulations to you and your husband for allowing yourselves a fresh start with a new baby and freeing yourselves from the cycle of circumcision.  What a relief it is that you are letting this day go by with nothing but cuddles and nursing.     I always pray for people who leave the hospital with an appointment at a later date for circumcision, pray that someone will say...
I'm having trouble posting links.  Try google: FGM MGM world map.  The circumstitions website has a good info page- but it's not an "official" website. 
A lot of conservative people are strongly opposed to infant circumcision.  It goes along with individual liberties, if the issue is presented in terms of politics- I think that few would have trouble "getting it" but the same problems face conservatives as liberals as anyone else who is circumcised or has circumcised- they lose their objectivity.  Circumcision exists outside any other logical connections in their beliefs.   To put it simply- you can never know who is...
Ophelia- I'm trying to understand what you are describing- and I think you mean that the foreskin is still attached to the corona of the glans (the ridge between the head and the shaft) except at one spot- where it the seperation makes the appearance of a hole because you are looking behind the ridge.  Did I understand correctly? Also I don't know what age your son is.   As long as it's not bothering him- I don't think you need to worry about it- you may want to...
search terms in quotes I think you should include the study by "Anna Taddio" that showed increased pain reaction to vaccinations in circumcised children... even the ones who had pain relief showed a reduced tolearnce to pain. I also think that you should use the word "cortisol" in searching as measuring the stress hormone cortisol is currently how they measure pain or the effectiveness of pain relief. There was also a "pain study" which was "halted" due to the extreme...
If everyone you know has circumcised- surely they WILL know people who have had circumcision problems.  These people fixate on the "I know someone who had to be circumcised stories" as if they are the most glorious justification for infant circumcision... but they conveniently forget their "I know someone who was circumcised as an infant and was circumcised again because of problems." story.  Why don't you ask/tell them about that?    "More circumcised boys are...
