can we have an adult convo about this without someone getting upset?
if we can then lets...
after whatching a video on this via the internet i was just wondering why some moms would opt to have this done?
i have a boy and he was not cut. i repeat was not cut. and neither is my husband. and if the baby im currently pregnant with now is a boy i will not cut him either.
i believe it is a painful and do not need to be done. it doesnt make it work better. lets face it you only need it for a few reasons. one to pee and two to provide life. true it does make it easier to clean but with good hygiene this shouldnt matter...
so again acting adult like can we talk about this topic... if not i will delete this....
so if you have done this or plan to do this.... why ? ? ?

I do circumcise for a couple of reasons. First of all, my husband is and really wanted his sons to be as well. My personal reason is that I used to work in a nursing home and saw several men who were not circumcised come in with foreskin infections. It was horrible and so very painful for them. Plus it took them extra long to heal as they were older. One actually had to be circumcised because the infection would not go away even after months of treatment and antibiotics. It took over 6 months for it to heal. It was at that time that I promised myself that I would not let any of my sons go through that. When my son was circumcised he cried for a few minutes and was completely healed less than a week later. So much faster and less painful than those older men. I really don't care if people don't want to do it, but for my family I felt it was the best decision. IMO I have saved my sons from possibly having a bad infection.

I circ'd my oldest out of ignorance, I didn't circ my younger son. I should have never taken it upon myself to alter my child if not necessary. The only need for surgery is when a medical situation happens, not because something could happen. A lot of things could happen and we don't have preventative surgery for them.
