Baby's penis always pointing to the left side - problem?

1.5m old baby's penis seems to be always pointing to the left side when changing the diaper and appears misaligned. is this a cause for concern?

could some slight hydrocele in the right side be the cause for this misalignment?


(as a side note, the baby was circumcised but the operation was well performed. the misalignment is at the shaft of the penis and not at the glans, so any issue is likely not due to the circumcision)

No concern. Some point straight. Some to the left. Some to the right. Some are slightly curved.

this was a bit funny reading it because theres no such thing as correct penis alignment really. a normal penis is always curved in 1 way or another due to its need at maturity to hit the spot if you will. If a penis was perfectly straight and aligned, there would be issues. There are people with some extremely curved penises if you will(at maturity), but even those are better than a straight one.

You shouldn't have circumcised him. The glans are the most sensitive and pleasurable part. The constant exposure of the glans will cause a great loss of sensitivity, and thus they lose a lot of pleasurable feeling which would have been quite useful to him when he is old enough to use it! :lol:

while i do not want to deviate from the topic, i agree with you regarding circumcision. but that's a debate for another day ...

nonetheless, if there is any curvature, i don't believe it is due to the circ since it was done perfectly. the curvature begins at the shaft and makes it point to the left side a bit, but it does not curve at the glans which could have been due to circ.

i will ask the pediatrician to keep an eye on it, but seems like i'm being overtly concerned with the little guy's family jewels :)

Unless you have had circumcision as an adult, you have no idea on how it is different (more or less). Many will suggest, the exact opposite, it is not loss of sensitivity, rather it is enhanced sensitivity...leading to more rapid orgasm etc...

Frankly speaking, be grateful. You could be dealing with something like hyperspadia. You have a healthy baby which is all that should matter, certainly not which way his penis "points"....

wonders if that smell is a troll?

The two most sensitive parts are the inside of the foreskin, and the glans. With circumcision, you lose one of the most sensitive parts altogether, and that leaves the glans constantly exposed which decreases sensitivity there as well - it's common sense. The only type of man who would experience increased sensitivity from circumcision is one who got it done for a medical condition called phimosis. With phimosis, the foreskin remains stuck to the glans and will not retract all the way like it should - so the glans are never exposed.

its true with the whole sensitivity thing. think of a female clit always being exposed and getting used to underwear and friction over the course of 16-20 years, then receive stimulation on purpose. It wont be anywhere close to the same.

Anyways, the kids alright. Also the side thing will play out later on because of pants as well. We cant tuck it backwards so guess how it sits lol. :D

As long as it does not point to your direction when you change his diaper, it is okay.
