No you don't. Educate yourself. Oh I guess it doesn't matter now. Smh


Quoting Jennyanne322:

Nope. You have to slide the foreskin back and wipe the penis tip with a q-tip. I found it pretty gross to do. He would of ha his circomsized in the happiest, but we were only there for a little over 24 hours.



Quoting cherrywaves21:

I'm confused as to how you clean it? You wipe it off just like a circ'd penis.






Quoting Jennyanne322:

My son had to wait two months to have his done cause of the way the appointments and OR space fell. I was so excited and couldn't wait for it to happen also. I hated cleaning in. Wish him and you the best of luck.

So many people are uneducated about how to take care of an intact penis.

You NEVER pull back the foreskin. Ever. You probably seriously hurt your baby :(

Americans are so uneducated about human health and human biology in general, it's sickening.

No you do not retract an intact penis to clean! Premature retraction causes all sorts of issues. You wipe like a finger. It would only be retracted to clean once it's naturally retractable. and by the time that is the case, the boy *should* be old enough to clean it himself.

They say the recovery is extremely fast, as they don't start having feeling down there until 2+ . It will be a quick in and out with dissolved stitches all around. Just a little neosporen for a few days and he is good should be back to himself within an hour or two from anesthesia


Quoting jonellg:

I don't think I would do it, it seems like at 1 they would be very aware of the pain and recovery would be longer. 

Quoting Anonymous:

When he was born they were going to do it but his shaft was still attached to the scrotum. So we had to wait for it to grow and detach. He has been cleared for a few months but wanted to wait til he was closer to a year old because of anesthesia





Quoting jonellg:

why would he have to wait?
