  1. What are your views on circumcision?

    Uhm I’m only 18 and I was just looking for opinions.

    After reading most of your answers I wouldn’t do it to my future kids.

  2. When can i give my newborn son an actual water bath? ?
    My son is 1 week on.. im wondering when I can give him an actual bath in his baby bath, because I can’t now with the umbilical cord and circumcision. He also has a lot of hair and im worried that if I don’t wash it soon he will get cradle cap. Thanks in advance!

  3. Is male circumcision and genital mutilation same? Is it legal? Why is it done? What are it’s benefits?

  4. Catheter (Male, 14 years old)?
    So, I currently have a catheter and am not getting it off for 3 days. I had it put in during surgery (cytoscopy) they removed scar tissue blocking the urethra. How uncomfortable will it be and how painful will the removal of it be? I’m 14 years old. Also, the catheter is very.. thick.

    • Having had that done myself several times it will be a bit painful when they remove it but it wont kill you. You will get a burning sensation when they pull it out but doing it a bit slower does help some. After a day you will be ok.

  5. Ureteroscopy with laser in men?
    Has anyone had this done Before if so will the penis hurt after is it a difficult procedure?

    • Ureteroscopy (u-re-ter-OS-kah-pee) is a procedure done to remove kidney stones. Kidney stones are also called renal calculi. Kidney stones are rock-like pieces that can form anywhere in the urinary system. This includes the kidneys, bladder, ureters and urethra (urine tubes). Your kidneys clean waste from the blood and make urine. The stone may be large or small. You may have more than one stone. Ureteroscopy is used when the stone is in the middle or lower part of the ureter. The ureters are the tubes that go from your kidney to your bladder where urine is stored, before it is passed out of your body. Ask caregivers for more information about kidney stones and ways to treat them.

      Care Agreement

      You have the right to help plan your care. Learn about your health condition and how it may be treated. Discuss treatment options with your caregivers to decide what care you want to receive. You always have the right to refuse treatment.


      There are risks with kidney stone removal. You may bleed more than usual or get an infection. You could have trouble breathing or get blood clots. You may need surgery or another procedure if the stone was not broken small enough to pass in your urine. Kidney stones can cause a kidney infection and can stop urine from moving out of your kidney. If a kidney stone causes these problems and you do not get it fixed, your kidneys could stop working. This could cause you to die. Your ureter could be torn or damaged during this procedure. Your ureter may grow scar tissue after the procedure and block the flow of urine.

    • I’ve been catheterized before also part of a surgical procedure. The most painful part is over and that is during the insertion. You probably know by now that having a tube in your penis will probably make you feel like you have to urinate quite frequently. The surgeon or technician who put it in considered the size of your urethra when he decided on the tube’s thickness. I’m sure he used the right size. I won’t lie to you and tell you that you won’t have some pain when the catheter is removed but it’s nothing like you had when it was inserted. Maybe you’ll get a pretty nurse to take it out. She will be gentle with you and probably won’t laugh when she sees your willy. Just kidding. I’m sure she will be very professional. I wish you luck and get well soon.

  7. What can I do if my urethra is too short?
    This is a long story but I would appreciate it if anyone could help me.. Back in march I fell on a pole and damaged my urethra. I was put through extreme amounts of pain and had several catheters and surgeries. In september I had a surgery that removed the small section of my urethra where the scar tissue was blocking the urine. He put the two pieces of my urethra back together and everything works fine with urinating and sperm. The only problem is that once you shorten the urethra, your erections can not straighten to what it should be ( otherwise being curved)… I was told it would not be a problem but its too short so that it is almost pointing down when Im standing. I am 17 and still a virgin but I know I cant have sex like this (unless one of us is upside down). I know sex is not the most important thing but it is an important part in a relationship.. There is another operation to take skin from the inside of my cheek and insert it in my urethra but my doctor said it doesn’t always work and can cause life long problems with urinating. You pee a lot more than you have sex so he said it wouldn’t be the greatest dicision. I am looking for some help, I have been through so much and my doctor said there is pretty much nothing else to do but hope it fixes itself. I can feel my urethra pulling hard when I have an erection and it can sometimes hurt. I want to know if there is any other way that is safe and can somehow lengthen my urethra. I am one in a billion and there arent very many people or even doctors that can help me. If you have any help or advice, I would really appreciate it :(

    • The only thing you can do is to go back to the surgeon concerned and talk to him about your problem

  8. Anyone had surgery for genital warts?
    Can you explain the surgery and whether it was successful.

    Did your warts come back?

    Did the surgery leave scars?

    • A laser can be used to destroy genital warts.

      Laser surgery may be done in a health professional’s office or clinic, a hospital, or an outpatient surgery center. Local or general anesthetic may be used depending on the number of warts to be removed or the size of the area to be treated.

      What To Expect After Surgery
      Recovery time depends on the location and number of warts removed. Healing usually occurs within 2 to 4 weeks.

      For men and women who have had laser surgery, call your health professional if you have any of the following:

      Bleeding that lasts longer than 1 week
      A fever
      Severe pain
      Bad-smelling or yellowish discharge, which may indicate an infection
      Avoid sexual intercourse until the treated area heals and the soreness is gone (usually 1 to 3 weeks, depending on the size of the area treated).

      Why It Is Done
      Laser surgery may be done when:

      Medicine has failed, and it is necessary to remove the warts.
      Warts are widespread.
      Warts need to be treated during pregnancy. Your health professional will recommend when treatment should be done during pregnancy.
      How Well It Works
      In studies, laser surgery removed warts in up to 50% of people. But, warts may return after surgery.1

      Laser surgery is a safe treatment for pregnant women.

      Laser surgery may cause any of the following:

      Pain, swelling, or itching
      Discharge from the vagina or penis
      Sores in the area treated
      Tissue that sticks together
      Shedding of dead tissue
      Urination that occurs in a wide, spraying stream, for treatment done in the urethra. Scarring of the penis is a possible side effect that can result in problems with urination or erection.

  9. A painful nocturnal emission with catheter in place…?
    I am a healthy 25-year-old male who had surgery just a few days ago on some scar tissue that was creating blockage in my urethra. A catheter was put in place which will remain for about a week.

    I have problems sleeping at night, largely because of the usual erection(s) that take(s) place in my sleep. My penis filling with blood means that my fresh wound (where they removed the scar tissue) bleeds. Not good. Painful.

    Well, to exacerbate the situation, I had a nocturnal emission the second night that the catheter was in place. This was quite painful and woke me up. Every morning I clean up the blood that accumulates at the tip of the penis, but I didn’t notice a lot of semen… just a drop of clear, sticky stuff.

    This was a couple of nights ago and I’m still noticing that clear sticky stuff in negligible amounts when I clean down there.

    What’s concerning me isn’t just the pain that I experience every time I sleep and get an erection, it’s also the strange sensation in my testicles that I’ve been getting pretty frequently – especially in the evening. I think it might be that my body is wanting to release that “stuff” but the catheter is in the way.

    It has been suggested to me that I keep a bag of ice at my bedside to cool down an erection next time that starts to hurt at night. Good idea or potentially hazardous?

    Perhaps one of you reading this has some special knowledge of catheters or the reproductive system and could help me understand this. Maybe one of you has gone through something similar? I’d appreciate your feedback and support.

    Boy I can’t wait to get this catheter thing over with! I just hope I don’t mess anything up in the process.

    • Yeah seriously, I know you dont want to hear this, but its what doctors are there for. Ask em’!!!!!
