I know that there was a thread at one point about parents who had circumcised their first (or more) but not siblings. Anyone know where that is? I looked through a few pages and can't find it. I have a friend that circumcised her first and doesn't want to with any future boys, but is concerned about the differences.

My oldest is circ'd, youngest is intact.


They don't notice the difference yet, and when they do, I'll be honest with them.


My oldest suffered adhesions, stuff getting stuck in his circumcision site and causing redness, pain, & irritation, etc.


My youngest has never had so much as a single problem with his penis. Ever. Nothing.

I am the oldest and was circ'd.  My two younger brothers were left intact.  My best friend in grade school was intact.


No issue.  None.  Subject almost never came up.  I remember asking my mom once.  She said they thought it was best when I was born, doctors recomended it, but when my brothers were born the doctors no longer recomended it.  My father, btw, was circumcised.


Again no issue for us.


And my sons are intact.  I am circumcised.  They are in high school and college now.  No issues at all.


The worry about this is simply fear mongering by pro circ advocates.

I agree because I have only seen intact status of father as a reason not to circ only once. Everything else says to circ to look like daddy but doesn't say the same for leaving intact. I however do not have any circed children. What I do have is an incredibly pro circ culture here and my son is definitely in the minority :( but I will cross the bridge later.
