We have never had any issues here.... almost 8 and almost 3 and everything thing seems to work the way God intended...lol. They are both proud of the fact that they have a penis like their Dada and tell me all the time.... They still have mentioned that Dad's is different then theirs (hubby is not intact). So, much for the argument of having the son feel better becasue he matches his Dad....
Two intact sons (19 years and 19 months), one intact husband (42), no problems. Nobody circumcises their sons here (apart from some religious groups) and I've never heard about problems with a normal penis.
This is my first time posting so I'll do a quick intro.
I am Leslie from SC and my son Riley (4) has never had any problems with his intact penis. Its funny cause I have never really done much of anything with it, even cleaning, etc.
I have my husband to thank for keeping him intact. I was initially under the assumption that we would circumcise although I didn't want to "deal" with the negative aspects of it. Luckily, I got schooled pretty quickly and things are the way they should be. I just didn't have the nerve to stand up to opposition and now I am VERY passionate about this subject.
No "real" problems. Although my experience is if you take your sick kid to the dr and the dr notices he's not circ'd, they suddenly suspect UTI, even if there's an obvious ear infection (or strep, or croup, or plug-in-whatever-other-common-childhood-illness-might-cause-a-fever).
I've encountered my share of drs who don't know how to handle foreskins, have been told I "have" to retract to clean it, have been told they "have" to retract to catheterize, etc.
But have there been any actual real medical problems with leaving my sons intact? No.
