Mama- everytime you pull it back and rip the skin apart you are creating more scar tissue on this penis. It is reattaching to try to heal/ correct the circ. The skin is meant to be there and reattches b/c thats were it is supposed to be. It will release when it would have naturally if the child had been left intact.

American doctors (for the most part) dont understand intact penis so they tell you to retract b/c they dont understand that it is the penis trying to heal itself. It will release when its ready.
