I don't have a boy but I will not. There is a lot of things you can read about why it's a useless procedure. But to each their own.

We did not. I ultimately left the decision up to my husband (he is circumcised). We did a lot of research and talked to many doctors before making the decision to not circumcise. It is a personal decision that only you can make. Do not let others make you feel bad for what you decide is best for your baby.

We did. There was really no question that it was going to be done.

I was neither for or against. My husband wanted our son to be circumcised. So we ended up doing it.

Then said if you don't when they get older they might get a lot infections on and off from that skin

It's ultimately up to you, however I strongly suggest you do it based upon research not looks. I found the best article the other day on it, and on proper cleaning of the uncircumcised penis and WHY it gets infected. I wish I could find the article. Best of luck to you!!

I did 2 days after he was born in the hospital .. It healed very nicely ... Medically if you don't circumcise there can be a lot of issues in the future with infections .. My father never had one he is 71 and he recently got s bad infection to the point they had to give him one .. At age 71!!Can you imagine the pain? It's better to just do it when they are small bc they won't remember the pain and you also save yourself a future medical visit bc of infection. It's one less thing to worry about

We did before we left the hospital. It's much cleaner and less infections

We did not. Our boys are intact. Never a infection between the 3 of them in 11 years. If it's taken care of properly the risk of infection is equal to that of a circumcised penis taken care of properly.

Yes! Lots of infections are possible in the future, you have to teach them how to clean it and everything. Little boys even going into older ages don't clean themselves very well. That's the reason I did it

2 of my best friends in high school were Mormon so they were not circumcised. They both absolutely hated it and one actually had to be circumcised as an 18 year old because of complications! It was rough/: my son is circumcised and it was so simple. It took a very short amount of time and he healed fast! All you have to do is keep Vaseline on it for a little while!

It's proven that infection is no different in circumcised or uncircumcised penises!! I did choose to have my son done. But that infection thing is not actually accurate! πŸ˜„

There is not evidence that the circumcised penis gets infected less than a non. That only occurs when you force it to retract. The foreskin should not retract until puberty. It also is self lubrication and there may be discharge but that is not something you need to clean. Many people aren't educated on it and they try to clean it and retract it and that's when it can cause a problem. It it fused to the penis like a fingernail is to the nail bed. When someone tries to retract it

To clean, prematurely then infections can occur. Infections occur because in this country we are ignorant to it. We believe it's dirty when it's not. It cuts off so many important nerve endings that are important to sex. Also, as it is self lubricating like a vagina, it's important to keep it, for sexual health. Sorry I'm not trying to spam up this question--just don't believe people when they tell you that it is safer or prevents anything circumcised because they are wrong. Read up on it. :)

You clean an uncircumcised penis like you would clean your finger.

We did. I left it up to my husband. I didn't see the point but he wanted it done. It's a purely cosmetic procedure these days. There is no evidence that it prevents disease or infection any better than basic hygiene. I think my husband just didn't want to try to explain why him and daddy look different.

Me!! But they messed up my sons penis ! They didn't cut enough foreskin off so I have to get him recircumsized!! Make sure if you do get him snipped that they do it right the first time !! It's horrible to see them go through it more than once !!
