Post here if you've NEVER had a problem... - Page 11
My 3.5 year old is just discovering himself and it is very funny and innocent to over hear him in the bathroom. No problems ever! I am not sure if the head is out yet (no drs ever retracted it on my request).... but I don't think so.. actually I am not sure what I am even talking about :D.. he is fine and everything is clean, no infections.. he plays in the mud a ton and also at the beach (lots of sand) and I can't think of anything worse than a boy that loves to play outside all the time in Hawaii to get it infected.. don't see it happening...
My DS is 4 and no problems, though I had to smack the intern's hands away because she was trying to retract him! Only thing you really have to worry about is doctors trying to retract. Or nurses. Or interns. You gotta tell them to never do that, many honestly don't know to not retract! They aren't taught anything about the intact normal penis.
Ex-husband is in his 30's (intact) &, to my knowledge, has had no problems.
My boys are 13 & 10 & have had no problems at all, ever, with their intact genitalia.
I come from a culture where they don't circumcise (Finland), so all of the males in my family are intact & I've never heard of any of them "needing" to be circumcised, later in life.
X's family was mostly British (don't circ) and Native Canadian (don't circ) and I've never heard of any of them needing one later in life, either.
I work in a hospital, and the only case I've seen of an older man "needing" to be circumcised... it wouldn't have been done, if the people involved had been more knowledgeable about the foreskin.
This is what drives me crazy about our culture - the ignorance of our doctors. How many thousands of circumcisions are performed needlessly??
My old, long term partner was on tact and had no issues. He was horrified that others were circed! His mom was Korean and refused it back when it was common- GOOD FOR HER!
My son is only 7 months old, but so far, no issues.
Actually, I have not heard anyone I know having problems IRL. I realize it's not a common topic, but its come up enough to know this.
I don't have any sons yet, but I have two intact brothers aged 22 and 25, and from what I know, neither of them have ever had any problems. They've had normal things like ingrown nails and careless accidents we got ourselves into as kids, but never anything wrong with being intact! One of them openly expressed that he's glad our dad left the choice to them. (Dad apparently was circ'd and hated that he was.)
