The only problem we ever had was a doctor who tried retracting him as a baby (before I could stop him) and he ended up getting an infection due to the injury. But I would think that's not an "intact issue" but more of a doctor causing injury issue.
My son sometimes hits himself in the face. It's pretty rare though.

No problems with 3.5 yr old DS.

Three intact boys. Never one little problem.

My son will be 6 tomorrow and has never had a UTI or penis/foreskin infection. He did have inflammation related to separation about 3 months ago. Because I am active on this board and I am more knowledgable than most of his doctors, I knew that this was NOT a problem. After a day and a half and a couple of baths, he was fine.

If I had been ignorant about normal development, I would have gone to the doctor and I have no doubt he would have been mistreated. Alarmist reactions and mistreatment are what causes a great deal of the "problems" that "always" happen with intact penises.

ds, no problem, dh and former boyfriends no problems, lots of boys in my extended family, no problems, in fact I haven't really known what circ. was until I came to America. Sometimes I feel like an impostor reading and posting in this forum because I have absolutely no knowledge about circ.

....but I hope it helps to know that there are places where people survive without the benefits of circ

22mo intact ds hasn't had any problems..errr...other than *really* loving to see how stretchy his foreskin is

DS is now five, no problems.
He had one day last year when it was sore when he peed, but he was fine within 24 hours. As an OP just said, if I hadn't known better, I might have paniced and taken him to the doctor over it, but a little warm water and...

On the other hand, how many boyfriends have I known who had problems from having been circed as babies?! I couldn't even say.

Well, I'm pretty sure DH has never had any problems in 27 years- at least that he's told me about
DS is 3 and nope, no forskin drama

My DS turned 3 on 6/24 and wasn't circed due to the research I did and reading here when I was preggo. I also convinced my DP that it wasn't necesary by showing him this board. We have had no problems

DS is 3 and has never had any problems being intact!!

5+ yo son and almost 4yo daughter...

both are intact (aka not circ'd) and both never had a problem. I must admit though that cleaning intact girls privet parts is WAAAAY harder (with my son I don't even need to remember about his penis existance, unlike with my girl where everything has to be well dried down there, after a shower or a bath.

Five intact children: 4 boys and one girl. We have had absolutely no problems or concerns, at all. All of them have been and remain healthy. :)

My son is 21 months old and there has never been a problem.

 

A funny story about his pediatrician. When he came to see us in the hospital after DS's birth, he suggested that we wait to have him circumcised because DS has what is called a hooded foreskin, which can't be removed by the device they use at the hospital, but rather should be removed by a plastic surgeon. We told him that we weren't planning on circumcising him at all. The pediatrician looked surprised for a moment, and I blurted out "Is that ok?" He laughed and said, "Hey, I'm from Europe. I'm not circumcised and I don't don't know anybody who is."

And still he was taking for granted that you would want him circumcised... He should use his knowledge to inform parents, not mislead them out of respect for the delusional circ culture! irked.gif He could easily intimidate fence-sitters into circing by talking about it as the default! irked.gif

Maybe so, but I adore him. He reassured me when my son didn't wet a diaper the first day in the hospital, told me that there was no need for formula when my milk took a week to come in, and has been very supportive of my alternate vax schedule, even telling me which vaccines he doesn't think are necessary at all.

 

From everything I've heard about doctors on this forum, I think I've been lucky.
