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

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.

Intact 16 mo DS - no problems!

Intact 27 DH - no problems, but his mother was advised to retract and 'wipe'. I honestly want to ask her how on earth was she was even able to retract without causing bleeding or tearing, but I dont want to hurt her feelings. she knows better now.

DH is 42 and DS is 2.5. No problems.

DS, 10/07. Allergies: peanut, egg, wheat. We've added dairy back in. And taken it back out again. It causes sandpaper skin with itchy patches and thrashing during sleep. Due w/ #2 late April, 2012.

11 months with no problems- except that we found out the hard way that some doctors don't know about intact boys when ours retracted him without consent.

And ours definitely does pee all over during diaper changes. So I don't know if this is related to being intact or not.

I'm in my 20s and because I'm in Australia all my partners have been intact. No problems, either that I noticed when I was with them (and I was with one for years) or in their childhoods, from what they've told me. One had phimosis but it never caused pain, infections or issues.

It's a shame we even need to have this thread. It's just a normal body part!

My 3 year old has never had a problem with his penis or foreskin, and I don't anticipate him ever having a problem. I think problems occur when the foreskin is retracted by anyone other than the owner of the penis. If the foreskin is not prematurely retracted, I think it's pretty rare to have a problem.

Hi Erin:

GREAT posting topic! My son is five years old, intact, and has never had even the slightest problem with his penis. No redness, no itching, no sticking, no adhesions, no nothing!

However, I can't agree with you on your last comment. My intact son peed all over me pretty much EVERY time I changed his diaper. I can't count how many times that he peed on my face (and grandma's face!) when he was an infant. I swear to God, even though I would tell myself to watch out, he'd still somehow get me!!!!

I think that was just a fluke thing with your son, and a lucky one on your part!

Oh, also, I should mention that I dated two guys (not at the same time, of course!) who were uncircumcised and they never had any problems with their penises either.
