When you put the words 'cut' and 'penis' together in one sentence, it makes you want to squirm uncomfortably doesn't it? Circumcision has never been an easy topic. In American hospitals, it is one of the most commonly performed procedures and except for abortion, it may be the most controversial.
Circumcision has long been known to reduce the spread of a few rare, serious diseases and to prevent a few annoying, uncomfortable ones.
So aside from the fact that our member is not all of its former glory after the process, what benefits can we reap from it? Circumcised boys have a lower risk of urinary-tract infections and penile cancer. It also slightly lowers the risk of getting sexually transmitted infections (STIs) including HIV.
You may think circumcision is a cruel and painful procedure and you may be right, but that was a long time ago. Fortunately, anesthesia is now used during the procedure so you hardly feel pain anymore.
However, after so long, people are still arguing over the benefits and risks that a child is put through during the process. Many say that circumcision is not necessary while others think that it is if you want to reduce risks of STIs.
Whatever the reasoning, if you're thinking of circumcision for your baby boy, read more about it and understand the idea of it before deciding.
