I hope you're right and something can be done after birth. That's all the more reason to make this public knowledge. I'd say the dead give away is when Docs say the penis is too small for circumcision. If that's true, it's probably a case of micropenis.
When I was born this condition didn't even have a name. I think I was 30 before the medical profession gave it a name. It's too late for me, because I'm 60. But I know from the sexuality and relationship board this is still happening, and I never heard of a Doc treating the infant.
I may live 20 more years, or maybe not. But I intend to make this well known before I die.View Thread
counterso, Why do you say it's not a birth defect? I think it is. It ruins a person's life. I also found out there's a female version of this. It's more rare than the male version, and easier to keep secret. Maybe we finally can do something about babies born like this. We can now effect a baby's genes. So maybe it can be prevented. My life has been unbearable due to this. I always kept it a secret. No more. I'm an old man. Hopefully I'll die soon. But before I do, I want this to be known of.View Thread
I'm not just complaining. I'm trying to make knowledge of this condition common. That way when a young woman sees it maybe she will do more than just laugh. It's a terrible thing to have, and it ruins a man's life. Most of my life it didn't even have a name. And as far as I know, medical researchers aren't trying to do anything about it.View Thread
