1 year old, also never a problem with his intact penis. However, I did get peed on many times when he was a just a little baby! :-)

3yo, only problem was because his doc told me to push the foreskin back.
Problem was minor, and FAR FAR less painful that he would have gone through being circ'ed. And def not a problem with being intact, more a problem of a dumb butt doctor

So other than that, problem free!

Intact almost 4yo - no problems, brother (40) and father (65+) never heard of any problems.
Originally from UK where intact is the norm.

My husband is 52 years old, uncut, and never had a problem with his.

DS is only 4 weeks, also uncut, and no problems. I do not expect to have any either.

My 7 year old has never had any problems. When he was 4 we switched doctors (for various reasons) but one of them was he would try to retract when my son was a baby...I told him just look no touching...but then he was adamant my son needed steroid cream for a "tight foreskin"...and asked if he was peeing well. He was and had no problems. I gave him the research about foreskin loosening on its own as he plays with it (which seemed to shock the old Christian conservative man when I said that) and during puberty. Anyway my son has had no problems with it or urination problems. And i declined the steroid cream. My 2 year old is intact and has also had no problems.

My 60 something year old FIL is intact and has had no problems. He's also a Vietman vet, and lived in some very unsanitary conditions. He's had no problems at all. I've asked and embarassed him to know that info

what to say...

I have a daughter, no boys yet, but we are ready for our next one soon... Well, when I found out I was preg with my first I did the research already knowing I wasn't going to circumsize if we had a boy, but I did it to make sure my hubby was on the same page with me, since that was all he knew.. Anyway, the real question I have is when I talk, about not circumsizing and how that is what I feel strongly about every boy in the world, to my friends and others, everyone always has this horror story of someone they know or how knows someone who got infected and then had to do it when they were older! Everytime! I just don't know what to say after that cuz it kinda pisses me off and thats all i can think about... So, I usually don't say anything, but I was wondering if anyone here has gone through that many times, like me, and what would you say or what did you say? Thanks!

One of Husband's aunts was way too furious at us for not circumcising and her comment was.."I've worked in nursing homes and it's always the old men who aren't circumcised who get the bad infections...you want to circumcise him so he won't get ill WHEN he is in a nursing home." As if a nursing home was everyones fate. I told her she was telling me more about the care in your typical nursing home than anything else...which really made her more upset since she was a nurse or something in a nursing home.

I'm a nice person but I usually don't keep my mouth shut when people put down others parenting choices in any way.

My son is 16 months. No problems at all. We follow all the advice about not retracting, ect.

My husband is intact as well. He did have many problems when he was young, but he was a survivor of the "retract at birth and as often as possible thereafter" generation. He had "phimosis" at age 2 and again at 9 or 10.

His parents are amazed that our son's penis hasn't fallen off yet

I have said, "oh, yeah - some doctor probably told his mom to pull back the foreskin to clean under it, and that can cause a lot of problems later in life - imagine if someone kept peeling back your fingernails!". Even if they don't fully get it, they do get the idea that maybe something other than simply having a foreskin caused/causes the problems.
