DS had his 24-month check-up last week, and during the check-up, the nurse practitioner who is his main care provider was very disturbed that his foreskin didn't retract at all. I was a bit puzzled at her unease, because nothing I'd read about intact penises indicated that they should be retracting at all at this age, and because DS has absolutely no problems with his penis or with peeing. After the appointment, I came back and checked my facts, and lo and behold (as you all know), I was right that there is no problem, and right to be rather horrified at her attempt to retract (which made DS very upset) and her advice that we needed to start trying to retract his foreskin. We're leaving it alone, of course.
So my question: if, and I say if, we take him back to that office, what do I say to the NP and where do I send her for better information on dealing with intact penises? We're probably going to go find an actual pediatrician now, rather than going back to the general practice place, but I want to know how to defend in case we have to take him back at some point and it comes up again.
