Yippee for Children's in Denver!!
post #202 of 280

Reporting from the future, my kids are now 8 & 10 & their penises have still not fallen off. Over & out. 

PS My daughter, who was 13 the first time I posted here, is now 24 & has had an intact bf, & says it is *marvelous*. :P

LOL! Yes!

Two boys, 17 yo and 12 yo, and zero problems at all.

Great reaffirming thread. I'll chime in! Husband (49) stepson (25) sons (14, 9, 2) never a problem!

 

Now disapproving family and friends... thats another story!

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...

8, 10, & never. (See the poll!)

post #208 of 280

My 7 year old boy never has had a problem, other than an ignorant pediatrician forcibly retracting him at his kindegarten physical :( 

My 8 month old is also intact with no issues...

post #209 of 280

husband 30 no problems.. ever.

sons ages 3 and 1 and no problems whatsoever.

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.

Well, DS is only 8 months, but we've never had any problems and I've been pleasantly surprised at everyone who is anti-circ:

  • pediatrician at hospital
  • many nurses at hospital
  • our pediatrician/FP
  • PA at our doctor's practice
  • my mom

 

And we live in a WAY pro-circ area.

33yr old DH -- no issues!

23mth DS -- no issues!

post #213 of 280

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.

 

...

 

ETA:

 

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??

No issues here!

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.

3 intact boys, almost 8, almost 5, 2 yo. No problems.

post #218 of 280

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.)

 

post #219 of 280

I have a 4 year old and a 2 year old, both intact, and absolutely no problems up to date. Happy as can be!

post #220 of 280

DS is 22 months and has never had an issue.  I actually just took him to our nautropath last week because he had been spraying and I saw the smegma pearl and was a tad worried since he is so young.  Turns out he is completely retracted and good to go.  Whoa!  Pretty early I hear.
