hi
An epispadias is a rare type of malformation of the penis in which the urethra ends in an opening on the upper aspect (the dorsum) of the penis.
u need not to worry at all as he can enjoy sexual activity normally.
once epispadia treated ,it does not cause sexual dysfunction.
use of condom make it more easier.

My 3 year old son can not pee standing up, even when I try to help him out and point his penis down he pees straight up and to the left. He has seen a specialist but I will be getting a second opinion because he doesn t want to take the time with him, all he said was he has skin covering the pee hole, it doesn t hurt so who cares pretty much. Do you know what could be causing this?
