Hey ladies, this isn't a debate but most of the intactivist moms I know are in this group so I have a question for you all.
Most of you know erics story in more detail, but here's the recap, he was circumcised at birth, it reattached four times over the course of his first two years.
I retracted it forceably each time, the first time because he had a build up of smegma that was getting red and swollen and painful for him because it was trapped in the pocket. And then subsequent reattachments I retracted to prevent it from happening again.
He's just over two years now, and I just noticed it's slightly attached again!
Not enough to form a pocket for smegma I think, but just all around the rim it's attached.
Now intact boys are still attached at this age and it releases itself over time, should I leave it alone and just let it do it's thing?
Or do I have to keep retracting it to prevent the same issue of trapped smegma.
He's FiNALLY stopped crying when I wipe his penis off and he finally doesn't seem to associate penis with pain so I hate to think of putting him through that again. Also he's getting to the age where he could actually remember this,....I do not want I'm having negative thoughts of his penis from so young!
Is it ok if I just leave it alone?
I don't trust drs anymore, so idk if I'd even ask any medical person, but you all have more knowledge anyways so you are the ones I'd trust!
