MY SON WASNT GIVEN ANY PAIN RELIEVER AND DIDNT EVEN WINCE OR CRY..HE DIDNT EVEN NEED TYLENOL AFTERWARDS.

THATS NOT SAYING IT DIDNT HURT HIM..HE JUST SHOWED NO SIGNS OF PAIN.

THANK YOU FOR THE INFO
Poor baby. He was in shock. If someone took a knife to my lady parts I would probably pass out

I had heard of this type of reaction to pain/trama, but it always seemed so unreal to me. My son is intact, although at age 4 had to have 6 cavities filled at the dentist. During the procedure, he "fell sleep" / became completely withdrawn. He remembers it though and is terrified to return to the dentist.

Lol, it wouldn't be the first time right? Nobody can have a decent argument to circ. Not to an intactivist. Not to somebody who cares about the rights of innocent children.

Re: Top ten reasons not to circumcise your son

Thank you for posting this! I made the biggest mistake and circ'd my son, which got all infected and screwed up. It was a "loose" circ and ended up re attaching anyway, minus the most sensitive part

My oldest's circ is slightly too tight. So is my nephews on the bottom. When my son has a morning erection, the skin from his scrotum tried to pull up. I know that's pretty common with circ, but it makes me sad to see.

Re: Top ten reasons not to circumcise your son

I am definitely going to make DH read this too. He is pro-circ, but that's because that is all he has ever known. I absolutely refuse to let my son be circumcised and have told my husband that I will not go with him if he decides to take him to get it done. Our son will be born at a birth center so he won't be circumscised there, we will have to take him to a doctor, and our ped does not do it either. So knowing that he will have to find someone to do it, schedule it and take him all by himself should be enough to change his mind, but if not, hopefully this will. Especially the part about the foreskin being the most sensitive part of the penis. As much as men love sex, you would think that all of the circ'd men would be pissed that they are missing out.
