My girlfriend has HPV. She was treated a little over a year ago for internal lesions. She's recovering well. We have never had unprotected sex. We have used condoms every time. Every time.
On a recent trip to her gynecologist, I was called into the exam room, and her doctor gave me the hard sell on circumcision. I am uncircumcised, and he feels it's a no-brainer.
I am FREAKED OUT. I love my girlfriend, but I'm 32, and my foreskin is part of my identity.
I get the impression her doctor is old-school and brash, but I don't want to endanger my girlfriend or any potential children down the road.
I want no part of circumcision. How necessary is it? Can it be avoided?
