Quoting she nan igans:" lol. I have an intact son and it's honestly not a big deal. If anything it's easier for Mom's to care ... [snip!] ... you teach a girl to clean. It takes a few seconds. It really isn't a huge deal, it just somestimes sounds like it is, haha."I have heard(from a biased uncirc source) that your actually not supposed to clean it, that it doesnt need cleaning. Is that true?
Quoting * MRS KING *:" What happens when uncircumcised men have sex? Doesnt the skin get pushed back then and get exposed to all the bacteria in a womans vag, or is a kids penis more vulnerable or something?"Lol... I don't think that's really relevant to the topic...
Quoting * MRS KING *:" I have heard(from a biased uncirc source) that your actually not supposed to clean it, that it doesnt need cleaning. Is that true?"
Quoting Rd.:" Lol... I don't think that's really relevant to the topic..."I dont see why not? I was trying to find out why the foreskin couldnt be retracted, and i did. I didnt know it changed, and thought if it doesnt bother them when theyre older, why would it bother them when theyre kids? Just trying to stock up on info when i have a son someday
Quoting she nan igans:" Like, ever, as an adult? No, you clean it. Like in the shower everyday. Sweat and whatnot get underneath ... [snip!] ... retract and isn't fused. So retracting it then is easy. As an infant it does not retract so you only clean the outside of it."
Quoting Rd.:" I don't get the big deal... I'd be pissed about her pushing circumcision on me but what's the big deal about pulling back the foreskin, on a body part she was examining?"Agreed
Quoting Mrs.Josh Ramsay:" Agreed"Because the foreskin is adhered to the glans when they are little. Retracting it can cause pain, bleeding, and scarring as well as secondary infections and possibly the need to be circumcised later on. Unfortunately a large amount of doctors in this country are dumbasses when it comes to an intact penis.
Quoting Squeaky McGee [14 wks]:" Right. Inserting a catheter is a sterile technique. You can't just go at it blindly. Besides, you're ... [snip!] ... the glans penis with iodine before inserting a catheter, which would entail retracting the foreskin. Part of the procedure."Actually, on an intact boy, no, it's not "part of the procedure" to cause an open wound to insert a catheter. http://www.facebook.com/WholeNetwork/app_102068836552678 and here. http://www.drmomma.org/2011/12/urine-samples-and-catheter-insertion.html
Quoting *Mrs. Mallard*:" So i took my 5 month old son to his dr today because he was running a fever he only has one kidney so ... [snip!] ... going to say is that with him being a boy his risk is low to begin with. Sorry if anything is confusing or not worded right."I am so sorry about that. So many doctors in this country are freakin idiots on this subject. Did you get their names? What they did is actually medical malpractice and it needs to be reported.
Quoting *Mrs. Mallard*:" <blockquote><b>Quoting Ezzy Jane:</b>" I am so sorry about that. So many doctors in ... [snip!] ... I didnt get names. I was in so much of a rage i forgot and i was trying ti comfort my skn after having had a catheter"I understand. You can always go back and request his medical file. It should have that information on who attended him.
