my two boys are not circed...no issues here
My six and a half year old son has never had a single problem, not even diaper rash, with his intact penis .

Please let's keep the thread on-topic. Restoration is beyond the scope of the topics discussed in TCAC forum. Thanks for your understanding and cooperation. Now back to the topic of being problem-free!
DS is 6 months old and not only have we never had a problem we also are surrounded with circed little guys with loads of problems from hidden penises to numerous 'revision' surgeries. Our pediatrician has been great too!!

7 years old. Systemic yeast infection at about 6 months old--a week of monistat and nystatin cleared that up. But, that could happen with girls or circ'd boys. No other issues in the boy parts department.
Intact DH, BIL & FIL, no real problems.
My DH is 37, and he was told back in the day that he needed to slowly work on retracting it. So I guess he'd pulled the foreskin back a lot in baths & such - this started around age 5 or 6, so he recalls. He says he remembers a lot of pain during these times. :( Also, he hadn't *FULLY* retracted it & was "manipulating" it ;) around age 11-12 and managed to rip it (!!) the rest of the way & bled profusely & freaked himself out and had to tell his mom so he told her he ran into the door with an erection. *giggle* Poor kid!!
Other than that, it's been totally fine, and I've been with him for 14 years. We *did* play "pass the yeast infection" a few times until we caught on that he was giving it back to me, but I guess that can happen with cut men too? So may not be an intact issue at all.
While he's not the first intact partner I've had, he's the first one I really experienced "intact sex" with (condoms previously) & I enjoy it a lot more (& it's not *totally* him, because when we first got together we used condoms, so I know the difference! *LOL*). Lube is still a good idea, though! *blush*
16 total years of parenting, never a hint of a shadow of a threat of an idea of a problem.
My son is only 5 and he has had no problems! :) I could not be happier about our choice to leave him intact!

I'm a nurse and work with the elderly. Out of the elderly penises I have met only one had tight foreskin. All the others had healthy elastic foreskin and no issues with hygene or infections.
Almost 8.5, no problems whatsoever. :)
He had surgery to correct inguinal hernias when he was three months old, and the head of pediatric urology for The Children's Hospital in Denver, an older gentleman, pretty much told me "Don't worry, that's how they're supposed to be, no one will do that to him here!" in response to my concerns that other less educated staff members might retract or even circ him during the surgery, having read some horror stories of little boys getting circ'd by "well-meaning" docs during other surgeries.
It's such a relief to finally trust yourself.
Reporting from the future, my kids are now 8 & 10 & their penises have still not fallen off. Over & out.
PS My daughter, who was 13 the first time I posted here, is now 24 & has had an intact bf, & says it is *marvelous*. :P
My 3.5 year old is just discovering himself and it is very funny and innocent to over hear him in the bathroom. No problems ever! I am not sure if the head is out yet (no drs ever retracted it on my request).... but I don't think so.. actually I am not sure what I am even talking about :D.. he is fine and everything is clean, no infections.. he plays in the mud a ton and also at the beach (lots of sand) and I can't think of anything worse than a boy that loves to play outside all the time in Hawaii to get it infected.. don't see it happening...

My DS is 4 and no problems, though I had to smack the intern's hands away because she was trying to retract him! Only thing you really have to worry about is doctors trying to retract. Or nurses. Or interns. You gotta tell them to never do that, many honestly don't know to not retract! They aren't taught anything about the intact normal penis.
