    My partner has the same issue, but at 27 it is a huge issue for him, we have to use alot of lube when having sex otherwise it tears & bleeds, its hard & embarrassing for to urinate in public.
    He wishes he had been circ'd when he was young as it is expensive now, and we can't afford it. Now he is a man and gets erections he's afraid of the healing time and because he is self employed time off work is hard to budget for.

    Just a different perspective, certainly get a second opinion, but whilst it may not be a big issue now it could be when he's older.

    thank you so much!!!

    We are going to go today and just have our consult and get as much info as we can from this surgeon. I dont care if i have to go to 3-4 different surgeons before we look at making a decision.

    We still think it's just a developmental thing and time will correct everything, but there's no harm in getting it checked just in case.

    thanks again to you all.

    During my university years I had a (lovely) relationship with a guy who had the same issue since birth, and it hadn't resolved.

    His main issue was when getting an erection, the skin was too narrow to correctly move backwards to accommodate growth. Sex was painful unless taken very gently, and it had caused significant stress for him in past relationships.

    Because there was no infection issue, it was classed as a medical problem, and the correction was a very expensive elective procedure. In his late teens, when the issue began, he wasn't keen to raise it with his mum, so psychologically it really escalated. It was difficult enough to get him to visit a GP in private!

    Eek, phone battery about to die, but another side to think about. Good luck!
    My husband had this problem when we met but all it took was extra time and lots of use and it is resolved all better no more issues, he had thought awhile back he may have had to get circ'd or use a cream but that is no longer an issue I hope he got better

    My ds, at age 5, had a medically needed circ as the fore skin was so tight that it would cut off circulation to the tip of the penis if it was pulled back. He also had a near constant balinitis which hurt him a lot.
    That actual operation was quick and as they used a cordal block he was pain free after surgery. He was fine the next day, maybe just some Panadol. It was the right thing for HIM to have done as he had pain most days, and since the op is fine. Go with your gut feeling as it is an operation that can be done at any age, so if he is still having the problem at 6, 10, 18, maybe do it then.

    If the concern is that the narrowness of the preputial orifice is causing urine to spray rather than flow in a ******, then a first course of medical action would probably be a cream of 0.05% betamethasone (eg Diprosone) applied twice daily for a few weeks. However, at only 3 years of age, and in the absence of other symptoms, one would be inclined to defer this for a couple of years and encourage the boy to gently retract at bath time.

    The choice between the two courses of actions is really a judgement call based on whether one believes there is any back-pressure into the uretha on urination.

    thanks so much to everyone who posted.

    we had our appointment this arvo and the docs given us a zinc type cream to apply once a day and he'll see us again in 2mths.

    He didn't believe that our DS will need a circ, unless he gets any infections etc.

    very relieved!
