I am new in this forum , I am Margie, FTM and my son is currently 6 months old has glanular mild hypospadia..
I am not sure whether this section is best to ask this thing but I have several questions that bugging my mind (on parenting)
so we (me and husband) also his ped urologist decided it is best to leave it alone and he said his stream is only 10 degree lower etc (can pee standing, can have kids, no bending, etc)
Are there any mothers here who have son with this condition? or probably husband with these conditions or friend, etc?
NoW as a ftm my biggest concern is how should I raise him? should I tell him ear lier or later? I heard boys are very sensitive with this issue (related to "his") any suggestions on how to bring it up? or should I wait until he bring it up to me?
Will this condition affect his sexual orientation? (I know this might sound stupid question) but again I really don't know where to ask.
If there are any man with this condition,I'd really love to hear their experiences directly (I have read sue from the other sites, but I feel it is better if I can connect and ask questions directly)
How to help empower my son and give assurance of his self esteem?any experts here about raising son? (esp on their sensitive years - pre puberty etc)
Thanks a lot , I am looking forward to hear input, advices, sharing related to this condition..I really appreciate it.
