: All right. This is getting depressing! I know there are more mom's out there who have intact sons and haven't had any problems! I searched for a thread so I could bring one back but, um, only got through 37 pages

So, I have two sons (3 1/2 and almost 7 months) and we have had no problems!

Also, two nephews (5 and 3) also no problems.

This is along the lines of the "Anyone still love their DH" thread started in PAP.

Let's see something positive! :

DISCLAIMER: I am not trying to belittle anyone who is really seeking help, I definitely encourage it, just hoping to keep us motivated...

My 4.5 yo baby boy is intact and he has never, ever had one single issue with his penis or foreskin. My DH is intact as well, same there, no problemo!

I am so glad I didn't give into the immense pressure my former ped was giving me to circ my baby. He was so wrong on so many levels!

3 years old - no trouble.



*fine print: Except for the stupid medical folks (a ped and 2 nurses) who have either retracted him before I could stop it (once), or tried to (I got faster)... but there have been no apparent issues to his penis, other than the pain and sense of violation he and I both felt.

6.5 years ds no problems; 1 yr nephew no problems; 74 yr old fil no problems.

The only problems I have heard of (IRL) have been associated with dr's "orders" of retract to clean, so I wouldnt even count that. If he was left alone, he'd be fine too.

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.
