OP probably won't read any of that. She doesn't want to know anything about circumcisions or learn anything new at all. She wants to make a completely ignorant decision rather than an informed one and has gotten mad every time anyone tried to tell her any real facts. She wants to blindly parent her child and make decisions for them just because "its what she wants to do" even though she has no better reason than because intact p***s' are "unnatural".

This thread turned out to be super long. I feel its the parents choice your reasons as to why really dont matter either, thats a personal choice. People are attacking other people and everything else. I dont know what Im having yet but when I find out if its a boy I will be getting him circumsized. I know a male friend who wasnt circumsized until he was about 21 years old and he was just like mom really why did'nt you do this when I was a newborn, and she was like I didnt want you to cry or to hurt you in any kind of way. He was like but I wouldnt have remembered it. He said the pain was terrible after the surgery, I believe he might of had to be put under and all of this could have been prevented with a circumcision at birth. I think you should decide whats best for your child and for each person it is different.



BTW my insurance in my state pays for it.

Quoting Love Wedge +2:" Since we're all here.. How can I help my 3 month old's stuffy nose? Saline drops aren't doing anything and the congestion is farther than that little turkey baster thing will go."


Wow I just read all of this. I missed everything because I went to bed super early 8)



Anyway, when my son is congested I always take him into the bathroom with me while I shower. The bathroom gets good and steamed up and it clears his congestion right up :)

All of the guys I know who have NOT been circed, wish they would have been........................



My friend's son was born with his meatus in the wrong spot, so they are doing surgery on the 10th to correct it and are using the foreskin to do so. So he will be circumsized at 9 months.

Same here. Every guy I know who isn't circ'ed say they are so happy they aren't. Sex is better in their opinion.

Also I have quite a few guy friends who said I made a good choice not circing my son. They actually gave me high fives. I don't know if they are circed and wished they weren't or are uncirced and happy.

They wouldn't necessarily, that's why I said "in their opinion". It makes sense, though. Think about areas of your body that aren't touched a lot and how sensitive they are when touched.



There was someone on here who had a friend who had it done at 25. He said the sex was way better before he had it done (even after he healed completely).

Having it done later in life would be the only way to know for sure what you like better.

Oh I know that, I'm just saying it makes sense that it possibly could.
Also why I stated about the member who's friend had it done at 25.

That's what my comment was about lol. Sorry, should have bolded :P



I've also never met any man who is unhappy with whether they were cut or uncut. As well, all of the intact guys I've talked to say they're happy they were left as-is.
