Re: Dh agreed not to circ, but says

Normally, You won't find many men/boys wanting parts of thier penises cut off for any reason. lol

DH was asked when he was around 10 if he wanted it done. (mind you he was born in the 70's when just about everyone was Circ'd) And he said NO WAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

LOL

I don't think you have anything to worry about honestly.. and even if he did, Atleast it would be HIS choice.

Re: Dh agreed not to circ, but says

If my son wants to get circumcised, he will have to wait until he is a legal adult and can pay for it himself. I will not sign or pay for any elective surgery for my children while they are minors.

This.

We will also pay for it and care him while he is recovering if he that is his desire.

We have one of each and I can tell you I have never had a moment of regret with leaving our second son intact. I have TONS of regret about our first. I can't go back and fix things for him. He has had multiple issues due to being circumcised

Re: Dh agreed not to circ, but says

I agree the chances are slim that he'll actually want to go get it done, so I'd just leave it be. But my opinion on it is it's his body and his choice.

Re: Dh agreed not to circ, but says

That's awesome that he is consenting to leave your son intact! I wouldn't worry about it, I highly doubt any boy/male/man would voluntarily want a piece of their penis cut off, but if he does, that's his choice.

Re: Dh agreed not to circ, but says

I agree with everyone else that there is a very slim chance he'll want it done when he's a teenager, and if he does you let him decide so you can feel good about that.

If he is teased or bullied because he's intact (not likely, but depending on your area it could happen) and he decides he wants it done there will be time for you to sit down with him and a doctor and fully explain what it means to him, all the risks and the pain that will be associated with it. DH can say he'll take him right away to get it done, but it's not like DS can say "I was thinking I want to be circ'ed" and he can take him down to the mall and get it done, there will be doctor's visits and hospital times to schedule in advance. It isn't something he'll be able to enter into on a crazy whim.

I guess maybe you're worried that he will ask at a young age, though and your DH will take him without making sure he's sure? Not sure if it's different in different areas but most little boys I know/know of aren't (not all but the majority, and i think in our generation it was the opposite so a lot of ppl worry that it still is.) I dunno, I wouldn't imagine it would come up but who knows.

Re: Dh agreed not to circ, but says

i dont circ either because i dont want to be the reason for my baby in pain,and i think its his choice.. but if he wants to do it when he is 18 then fine. i have a friend who has 2 brothers and we were talking about circing (we were both preggo w/boys) and she said that she had one brother who was, and one that wasn't and the one that didnt have it done wishes he did..so she was gonna do her son but i dont think she ended up doing it. but her brother never did anything about it and is married so i think hes fine haha

Re: Dh agreed not to circ, but says

The only thing I would worry about is if you think your DH will berate or otherwise make fun of your DS for the sole reason of pressurizing him into saying "I want to be circ'd"
