Re: A Question about Circumcision (yes, a real question!)

IMO, therein lies your answer.

Re: which countries to seek medical info from, I think either the Dutch or Finnish medical association welcomes email queries, even from citizens of other countries. I tried it once myself years ago. The person who responded was fluent in English, and the reply was very thorough and helpful. I want to say it was Finland -- which, incidentally, has a markedly healthier population in these areas than the States, in spite of the fact that circumcision is very rare there. Good luck!
I have a DR who I love for the boys because he's very "intact is normal" I believe it's because he's from Brazil. Hes seen more intact boys than circed from working in a country with such a low circ rate.

So I think it's great advice to contact a doc who's not used to circ if you are interested in keeping him intact.

I don't know 2 things about your DDs condition, but don't let it worry you too much until you know one way or the other!
