    makes me wonder if people had their eldest done but then after research etc decide not to do any further boys.
    my sister has 4 boys, 2 older ones are done but they were 5 & 9 at the time due to their foreskin being too tight. her younger boys(twins) who are now nearly 7 are intact with no issues.

    my son was not circ'd.

    I have 3 boys but only one is in this age bracket. The older boys are not done. But the younger(4yrs) one is as he has had medical problems, otherwise he would have had a life time of problems

    I'm on my phone so can't vote. My 3 year DS is intact, as will any future Bubs.

    It is 22% at the moment which is only a little above the current national rate of 19%. What I find interesting is that out of more than fifty actual replies only two have been from mothers who had their boys circumcised. Make of that what you will but it suggests to me that they are embarrassed and ashamed they had their boys done.
