Can you just imagine the insanity of seeing a similar thread, in another country, titled "Have an intact girl? Post here" All us moms would be chiming in to report that our girls are having no trouble with their normal genitals, also, that we too are living a normal life without being circumcised.

I have an intact boy who is 4 years old. When he was 2 his penis got infected and hugely swollen and we had to take him to emergency in the middle of the night. He was basically screaming in pain even without anyone touching his penis. He was put on antibiotics because he had a bacterial infection. I don't know why he had it. The antibiotics didn't cure him well enough and the infection started spreading to his lymph nodes, but after he got another antibiotic by infection he got better very fast. So, yes, we've had penis trouble.

ds is 4, a few months ago he had a tiny bit of redness and swelling on his foreskin that I treated with an antibiotic ointment, but it was going away on its own anyway. Gone in 3 days. No other problems, ever.

My father, both of my brothers (28 & 25) and my 6 mo old son are intact. None of them have ever had any problems. But it's important to add that my daughter and myself have never had problems with our intact genitalia either

I'm pretty sure I've responded to this thread before but I have a school aged son who is intact.
He's never had one single problem. Ever.

He's also never had an issue or even noticed a difference between him and his circumcised father.

Now my daughter, she's had a few uti's and "issues" related to heat and wet swim suits, etc. Maybe I should have her circumcised? ... Nah, I won't. Now that I think about it, her labia has nothing to do with uti's (much like a foreskin has nothing to with uti's).

I have a beautiful 6 month old intact son who is absolutely healthy and has no problems. He barely ever even gets diaper rash. I don't even wipe him that much when changing diapers, mainly just clean him up with water if he gets poopy. So simple, easy, and natural.

3 intact boys... 7, 5 and 2 and no problems

DH is intact and he had infections when he was young because his mom had been told to retract his foreskin at every diaper change and bath... when he started taking baths by himself the infections stopped and he hasn't had one since.

Two intact boys - 16 and 4. Neither has ever had any problems at all. DS1 wasn't retractable when he stopped being naked in the public parts of the house - call it 8 or 9. I assume he is now, but I don't know for sure. DS2 has been retractable for about 6 months. He thought it was a great "trick". He hasn't had any problems, though...and considering some of the things I've seen him stick in there, I wouldn't be surprised if he had!

Also, my 46 year old brother is intact. To the best of my knowledge, he's never had any problems, either. I don't think he has, as at least one of his ex-girlfriends had major boundary issues, and I know far more about that aspect of his life than I ever wanted to. Ugh.

I honestly had no idea until I came to CaC that some boys/men did have problems - major or minor - with their foreskins.

2 intact boys.

Intact ds1 was forcefully fully retracted at 4 months by an ignorant paediatrician. His prepuce was swollen, red and tender for a few days afterwards. It healed, but it did freak me out because I didn't know at the time that it was an iatrogenic injury. I quickly learned that a care-provider should NEVER retract a child's foreskin. Its bonded to the glans just as the fingernail is to the finger. Just like one should NEVER separate the the synechia of a newborn kittens eyes because the eyes are still developing, a care-provider should NEVER separate the synechia of a child's prepuce because its still developing.

Other than his iatrogenic injury, he has never had any problems since. He is six yrs old now.

Intact ds2 is two yrs old. Never a single problem.

First ds, circ'd, has meatal stenosis which occurs only in circ'd boys and he has little skin to grow into. During his growth spurts age 3 and 4 he'd have screaming spells because what was taken could NOT accommodate the size of his genetically designed reproductive organ. This was extremely painful for him.
