My 5yo ds is normal and has never had any issues with his genitals. No doctor has ever messed with him.
Dh is circed(religious/culture excuses) and is pro-circ.

No problems outside of the ignorance of a doctor who caused injury by forcibly & surgically retracting my 2 year old (during a hernia surgery).
Now he has "true adhesions" which we pray will resolve with time.

Prior to the surgery, no problems, ever - EVER!

Have to add...

Although not my sons...

Have interviewed and found:

1. My father - intact ... no issues ... 60 years old

2. My FIL - intact ... no real serious issues (reported had some "tearing" ... after further discussion, realized were physiological adhesions releasing during his early teens-he was also victim of early childhood forceful retraction) 58 years old.

3. Two brothers intact - 22 yrs old and 29 years old

(from the information provided...no issues reported with the exception of the older brother mentioning he was in fact made fun of on one occasion by a few friends, but he set them straight quick...)

4. My babe inact..as I previously reported..no issues outside of his over-zealous surgeon assaulting him.

5. FOUR nephews - all intact -- none have had any problems
(SIL described forced retraction at my DN's one-year check-up...but he has been fine since...he is now 6 years old - the rest 3.5yrs, 2yrs and 2 months)

That's funny!

I've already probably said this twice, but here's hoping three time's a charm: Intact male 32 years with not ONE problem. Come from a family of intact males, no problems that I've ever heard.

Quasi-OT vent: I was born in 1975 in the province of Ontario when it was more common to circ, than not. That said, I'm seeing this new 18-year-old guy (same city as me, London) and even a day into knowing him, the topic went "their" (lol) and he told me he's circ'd. And I play it casually..... but in my mind I'm steamed. He was born in around 1989, so the circ rates were lower back then (even lower now!) and he got mutilated. And so I ask myself: "Are circ'd guys 18 to say 20 mostly cut?" I ask this, because I'm hoping we're essentially "flushing out the system" of circ'd generation of males, so when they have kids of their own, they're more prone to leaving them intact. But if you still have a lot of circ'd 18-year-olds currently, what happens in a few years when _they_ want to have kids? So in my mind, I go a step further... "Okay, are today's 11-year-olds mostly intact?". If there's a fair number of them, when does it end?

This means we have to further educate the younger set to be logical and compassionate to not do to them, what their parents did... even if it was only 18 years ago... or 11 years ago. KWIM?

Two boys, both nearing five years old, no issues.

I can also add that my father is intact and has had no problems either (in his 50's now). He and I discussed circ when I was pg with my boys.

Most Australian boys born recently are uncircumcised- & most have no problem with the foreskin. I mean, my ds did have a bit of a red at the tip from time to time when he was younger, but our GP just said to put a bit of nappy rash cream on it. It just was not a problem, yk? :

My son is only 18 months but no problems! Ironically my SIL who circ'd because "so much can go wrong if you don't" has had endless problems with her son's penis!

No problems with my intact kiddos...4yo (was partially retracted by ped at 4 mos--promptly found a new ped) who recently and much to his pleasure discovered that he can fully retract! 6mo is fine too!

My grandfather who died at 84 from CHF, never had any problems being intact either!

my 2.5 y/o never had a problem.
Neither did my nephew, or any other male child born in our extended family.
But they are Europeans, so most of them don't even know what circumcision is.

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.

Leslie
