Im all for it, I think it makes it easier for when the boys get older, and it is easier to clean as well.

Do whatever you feel is right. Personally, if I ever have a son I would not get him circumcized because there are really no health benefits of removing the foreskin. I find it unnecessary to put a baby through pain to remove something he was born with! Just my opinion but I hope it goes well christina!

Hey



hey some medical benefits of circumcision are
- it has been shown to reduce the risk of urinary tract infection
- it reduces the risk of penile infection also called balanoposthitis
-it elimates the need to do it later in life 6% of boys will require circumcision do to medical reasons doing it later in life takes longer to heal is way more painful and requires a general ansethtic instead of a local one
-circumcision has been shown to reduce the risk of getting some sexually transmitted diseases including the human papilloma virus (hpv) and aids
-circumcision has been shown to reduce the risk of penile cancer and cervical cancer in partners
- some studies also show that circumcised men have a less risk of a sexual dysfunction later in life...


There are some facts about.. I copied that from one of the brouchers I got on circumcision

Hey


they usually get it done before two months of age.. Where I m going its cheaper for under two months.. The younger they r the less risks r involved n it takes shorter time to heal when they r younger.. I casnt remeber r u in canada? Cuz if u are they do not do it in the hospital no more u have to go to a private clinic whic costs big bucks... Dominicks is 200$
