Well I'm not doing it when my baby is born but I'm very much for it. I plan on having a discussion with my boy once he reaches the age of 12 or 13 to see how he feels about not being circumcised and to discuss the potential risks/benefits of getting a circumcision. I'll offer him the opportunity to decide what HE WANTS to do with HIS BODY.
Teaching your child proper cleaning skills and safe sex also reduces chances of infection and sexually transmitted conditions. Circumcision is purely cosmetic and is no longer recommended as a routine surgery for male infants. The foreskin contains thousands of nerve endings and they serve a purpose. Do your own research come to your own conclusion but please read up to date material about it. It's a thing of the past and not necessary for your baby's health.
Its actaully not beneficial... Google it google the truth behide circumsion... new tests and studies show it a lot if things bad about it too. Check out some YouTube videos such as the elephant in the room. Always do your research on these types of things so you know whats best for your baby. That's all I'm gonna say bc I'm sure drama will ensue mesage me if you want more info.
If I have a boy I'm without doubts having him circumsized. This is probably TMI, but my ex from years ago had an uncircumcised and it had a strange fishy odor and he was veryyyy hygenic. He always felt insecure about himself and wished his mom would have gotten the procedure when he was born. I'm not sure why it would smell that way. He had no STDS. We got tested together. It's just a lot better for men in their later years. Save the embarrassment.
I think it's up to the parents to decide what's best. My now toddler was circumcised a day after he was born and it didn't effect him, he didn't even cry. I'm now pregnant with boy #2 and he'll be getting circumcised as well. To each their own, but for me, I'm for it completely.
Honestly i dont see the point.. my two brothers, boyfriend, his four brothers, my dad his dad all dont have it.. and to that fishy smell, lol, i asked my bf and he said it could be because he wasnt all that clean, didnt clean.it all that well like he should have
He was extremely hygenic. He showered every single afternoon. I mean I showered with him. And no matter what it still had smell. I mean I'm only speaking from someone who witnessed "the struggle". I just think it saves men the embarrassment. Plus every girlfriend I've had always thought it was disgusting. I mean it sort of is. It looks weird too.
Thanks for the opinions guys not even sure what the sex of my baby will be yet but i thought this was an interesting subject i live in germany and if i have a boy will probably leave it up to him to decide as this practice is not so common here....also my man didnt have it done he never had any problems and he doesnt stink all people have a different smell and if it is bad it isnt just because they arent circumcised....i grew up in the states now i live here so just wanted to hear opinions thanks
To the person saying "its just moms saying this" lol your extremely wrong. My obgyn Dr told me himself, that it was pure cosmetic. My ex didn't have his done and it never smelled I don't think it looked funny. Sex with him was actually better with him to he didn't feel bad about not having it done either. My husband now after watching videos and reading up on the up to date facts actually wishes he was uncircumcised
