My sons are grown now; no problems with them, either!

ETA: One reason it may seem as if intact boys have a lot of problems is that this is one of the few places on the internet where parents of intact sons can come asking for help/advice without hearing "Well, you should have gotten them circ'ed!" There is such a dearth of accurate information out there! The vast majority of intact boys never have problems with their penises; of those that do, the problem is often caused by improper care, or by wrong advice from doctors and nurses. Most intact men NEVER have a problem! This cannot be stressed enough.

29 yo intact DH, no problems ever. Self-retracted around age 3, no issues.
I've had no infections or problems during our 5+ years together. He only smells bad after a long day of sweaty work, but after showering & normal activity I've got no complaints.

None of his brothers have any issues and he never knew of anyone who "had" to get circed due to problems. (He's from frmr East Germany.)

DS is 2 and we haven't had a problem.

DH is 33 and he's never had a problem. He's never heard of anyone having a problem. He is from Hong Kong.

My ds is 3 years old and he's never had any problems with his intact penis.

DH is 36 years old and no problems either - he can't believe people do that to little babies in the States (he's British). (for RIC, not the British bit! )

My Dad is also intact (although my brothers aren't), and when Mom and I discussed this issue right after ds was born (and was left intact), she said that Dad had never had any problems either (he's over 60).

I have two sons ages 15 yo and 20 months, neither have had any problems. Both of their male cousins are intact with no problems, they are 18 and 20 years old. Dh (38) is intact and has never had a problem his older brother (48) is intact as well as his dad who is 85 years old... Neither his dad or brother have ever had a problem.

The only person dh and I are aware of that has ever had a problem is dh's oldest brother (50) He was the first born boy and she (mil) had him circ'ed. He became infected bled like crazy for days, swelled enormously. It scared mil and she then decided any future sons would be left intact.

Every single male in my extended family is intact. No problems ever.

Both of our sons are intact and we've never had problems ( well, if my 17mo stretching the top of his foreskin and giggling like a demon is a problem ) DH is intact as well and so are all of the men in his family- no problems. Once when dh and I were first together we passed a yeast infection back and forth for a month, but I blame that one on myself for not getting proper treatment. So, for all intensive purposes, no problems here!

I'm from Russia where circ is extremely rare (practically unheard of) and only for VERY serious medical reasons. None of the men I knew had any problem with the foreskin. My dad, brother, ex-hubby, his brother, sons of my friends (and almost all of my friends have boys), no one had any problems with it. It's a matter of fact, I've heard for the first time that men can also suffer UTI and yeast on the penis only here in the US (I was 26 y.o. when I came here). Until then I honestly thought that this is just something that only women have to battle with...
