we chose not to circumsize our son, one of the reasons is that it's not covered by our insurance and we just didn't have the extra $500 to pay for it (my car pmt is less than that!!). while at the hospital, they ran a urine culture because during a normal blood test his #s were up, and it came up as a UTI. he was given antibiotics for 10 days and the culture was redone, his infection was still present but the numbers were low enough for him not to need antibiotics again. we will be running a full screen urine test soon. I'm wondering if the reason why he has it and it just won't go away is because we didn't circumsize him. have any of you moms gone through this with your boys?

None of my three boys have ever had issues and they are 13, 11, and 10. Are they drinking alot of juice? Sometimes it is too acidic for them. My daughter could not drink juices especially OJ. But a friend of mine had to have her 10 year old circumcised because his penis would not retract properly and he did keep getting infections. Her son also would eat alot of fruits. HOpe this helps.
