Q: circumcision..

Hi ladies, im 22 weeks pregnant with a baby boy! i am over joyed and so excited about having a little boy but me and my husband cant agree on what do to... my hubby is circumcised and insists that our son get circumcised also... i dont want to do it i dont feel like its natural,,, i want to leave things where they belong. we fight about it almost daily and i dont know what to do. should i just let him win? the thought makes me feel sick but i dont know what to do.. how did u decide if circumcision was right for u? does it all depend on ur husband or did u look at pros and cons and decide regardless of what ur husbands penis looks like. ?sometimes i think a girl would have been easier!

You can ask 50 women how they feel about the issue and they will all tell you yes or no for different reasons.
If I have a boy, these are the reasons we WILL have our baby cut:
*My husband is cut.
*Yeast infections are more common in uncut baby boys, particularly if they are in damp diapers for too long.
*Not only are they easier to clean for mommy and daddy, but for the rest of the family when changing him, and also for himself when he becomes potty trained and starts bathing himself.
*I dated a guy who had to be cut when he was 16, as did his identical twin and their older brother, because the cord attached to their foreskin was so tight that erections were ungodly painful. Not remembering the pain as an infant vs. two days on light duty/bed rest for a guy seems a little nicer.
*It's a parent's choice.

Not at all the same thing, hon. Removal of the hood prevents orgasm and is done for that reason only. My son is not circumcised simply because we didn't think to do it at the time. He is now 16 and gives me grief for not doing it when he was a baby. There are more men who aren't cut that wish they were than the other way around so enough with the judging. It's common sense, most women prefer it, most men prefer it, hell even Dr. Oz prefers it lol, so go for it as you will probably have less regrets later. If you don't like it, don't do it. Who cares

yes it is called being clean. if u are worried ur son wont clean himself, then u have bigger problems then to cut or not to cut.

Do you want your child to get sick with infections or do you want him to have a normal if. God may have put it there but you can take it off and that is whats best. Its called being clean. I know a lot of people including myself that wont have anything to do with guys that arnt cut. My first time I got a uti from a guy that wasnt cut.

wow im amazed how many posts are FOR circumcision. i dont see why an adolescent wouldnt be able to clean his penis, unless hes not taught cleanliness. there is NO NEED for a mother to pull back their infants or their childs foreskin to clean it, as it is still attached until 3 years or so. the urine does a good job of disinfecting the area. cleaning the penis is not an issue until the foreskin opens up and allows space to pull it back off the penis, at which time ur son can be taught how to clean it. my husband is not amputated and has never had a problem with his penis due to good hygiene. if u teach ur son to wear condoms there wont be an issue with STD's either. these posts are rediculous. i would NEVER hurt my infant just for him to look better. insane. things need to change...and people way of thinking needs to change!!!!

It's about cleanliness and the ability for a boy to take care of his uncircumsized penis without you. My son is 10 and he started wanting full privacy a few years ago! We decided on having our son circumsized and don't regret that decision. I would side with your husband because he has a penis and knows what it's like to care for it.....where as you don't. You just want it because it's natural....but again, you're not left with taking care of it and dealing with it the rest of your life.

My son is circumcised just like his daddy and we are happy with our decision i know it sounds scary but it really is not that bad if we are having another boy this time we will also be doing it to him as well.
