Despite male circumcision being relatively common, it's not something people usually talk openly about. But when a grieving mother explained how her son killed himself after being circumcised, foreskin forum prompted many men to foreskin forum their own experiences. I don't know why I'm writing this. I'm sorry. These were among the responses to a story about the death of year-old Alex Hardywho was circumcised after secretly suffering from a tight foreskin - a condition known as phimosis - for many years. He felt the circumcision left him in a lot of pain, both physically and mentally, and killed himself two years later.
Some readers who got in touch said they had never spoken about their problems before - even to their partners. Here are some of their experiences. Some names have been changed. Curtis, 21, from Worcestershire, developed post-traumatic stress disorder due to the severe pain he experienced when the wound from his partial circumcision became infected. He can't have sex or masturbate manually as he is, in his own words, "scared of my own dick".
So I had to be carried a lot of the time to and from rooms. Sleeping was a problem because Curtis's T-shirt kept getting stuck to the wound.
Curtis has been having sex therapy for two years and hopes to be able to have sex one day. He has already made progress and is a lot more comfortable when he touches his penis to wash it. It's small steps and small victories but they are victories I wasn't having before. So I can see it getting better.
John, who is now in his early 50s, was circumcised as and started getting unwanted erections soon after. He said he could "relate foreskin forum when he read about how Alex found the touch of underwear overly stimulating. John was circumcised when he was between six and eight years old, but he does not know why. I vaguely remember having difficulty passing water at the time.
He remembers experiencing pain after surgery and being more sensitive than before. I didn't know what masturbating was but that's what I was doing. It was the only way to find some relief. John believes the trauma of circumcision was an influencing factor when he later had a nervous breakdown.
Another reader, Pete, is not able to retract his foreskin but he doesn't see this as a problem requiring medical treatment. Pete was initially "very anxious" when he found out he might have phimosis. Some of Pete's sexual partners have been "curious about why I'm not like most other guys".
Pete says it "feels a bit awkward to be made to feel slightly wrong somehow".
Marvin was successfully treated for phimosis as using steroid cream, and he is concerned foreskin forum consultants might be advising circumcision unnecessarily. This is because his own son was advised to have a circumcision, rather than use steroid cream. His son's foreskin did not retract as he got older, so Marvin took him to a doctor when he was He was then referred to a consultant at ren's hospital. Marvin then mentioned his own experience using steroid cream. About eight weeks later, the problem was resolved. Barry Betts, 42, had phimosis like Alex but was treated with less invasive surgery, known as frenuloplasty.
He said it was "a huge success" for him and wanted to make other men with phimosis aware of it. He was referred to an NHS urologist who told him the options were "nothing, stretching, circumcision or frenuloplasty". The procedure involves surgically lengthening the frenulum, which is the band of tissue where the foreskin attaches to the under surface of the penis.
Barry dropped a stitch after his operation which led to some "scary bleeding" but this stopped on its own. Robert Dawson, 51, from Nottingham, was circumcised as an adult after seeking medical help when his penis bled during sex. He initially regretted it, but says sex is now more enjoyable than before. My girlfriend remained outside throughout this but heard my screams.
When Robert was younger he used to be able to pull his foreskin back, but as he got older it became tighter and he could no longer pull it back. It bled during sex inso he went to see a urologist who advised him to get circumcised. The urologist did not suggest any alternative treatments, but Robert did some research online and decided to go ahead with the circumcision. He had the operation in Vietnam in Juneas that was where he was working at the time. Unlike Alex, his frenulum was left intact.
Some of his skin has fused slightly higher than it foreskin forum have done, so he is due to have further surgery in Nottingham to fix this. They may have been able to fix his problem, but again, like me, he found a world not willing to talk about this.
Psychotherapist Nick Turner, who specialises in relationships and sex therapy, is currently treating two young men who were traumatised by being circumcised as children. What would a six-year-old boy know about how foreskin forum deal with a situation where they are in intense pain following a surgery? Claire Allen, a counsellor at sexual violence charity Savanabelieves male circumcision is comparable with less severe forms of female genital mutilation. It's hard to know what damage it can have on people's brains but there are lots of things that can come from the effects of trauma.
