That I circumcised my son.

Yup.

And I'm not posting anonymously because I am okay with acknowledging this.

I really do wish I had let it be his choice.

 Other than allowing him to choose, why do you regret it

I'm glad my first was a girl, and I was more informed before having our son :)
We originally thought we would circ.

His choice?? Lol that's laughable what grown boy or almost would agree to let them slice their privates? You either do it as a infant when they will forget it or not at all. I think your sons better off...

I do too sometimes.

My husband isnt, but we married after my son was born...andmy DH sayd that UNcircumsised penises have more sensation...kinda makes sense.

so...although I havent hurt my son, he still funstions and may have a goos sex life one day, maybe I shouldnt have. You can always take it off, but you cant put it back, you know?

Hmmmm oh well.

We all have regrets. No point in beating yourself up over it. I'm sure he won't resent you for it :)

That's my main reason. And because I know men who are uncut and men who are circ'd, and I feel like the uncut men enjoy the experience of sex more. Aside from that, there was no need for him to have the procedure done. It was purely elective and had I known better then, it wouldn't have happened.

Quoting mommy_me:

I regret circing my first two sons, my third is intact. They both have scaring and my middle son has adhesions that hurt 3.5 years later.

Not circing is so much easier too. You just wash it. No pain. No slathering in vaseline. No retracting the foreskin(this is WHY infections happen because its actually connected and is self-cleaning.)

Me too. My youngest is intact...my dh is intact too..idk why he wanted our first circ'd..I'm guessing because his ex got their son circ'd
