I don't want this to turn into a circumcise or not to circumcise debate. I want moms(&/or dads) of older boys to PLEASE tell me what they decided and if they have any regrets, either way.
Here is my dilemma: my son was 3 months early and for whatever reason, even though I signed (reluctantly) the consent to cut, he wasn't circumcised in the NICU. He is now 1 year old, I am against it and my husband is for it. I've tried to convince him it's not medically necessary, but he's made up his mind (I think). I am afraid of it being messed up or him hating me that he is not "intact" when he is older. On the other hand, I'm worried about problems from him not being circumcised or him hating me because I didn't have it done when he was a baby. Maybe it would be more clearcut to me if I had my own penis... I've just read so much that I really can't decide. Moms? Dads? what did you decide for your boy(s)? --ANY REGRETS?
Thank you in advance for keeping mainly to the "any regrets" question, I REALLY don't need to be educated on pros and cons.
