  • my son is not- we would have had it done- but we didn't have the 100 bucks to pay for it : / (and no one to borrow from either)...
    he has never had any issues with it and if he wants it done he still can at some piont...

  • My son is. After much research I was on the fence. But after being advised by a family member and a friend who were not circumcised that it would be best I decided to do it. Their stories convinced me the pros out weighed the cons.

  • My son is intact. I felt it is something he should decide on since it is his body. If he wants it done later, then at least he is consenting to it.

  • Yes, both of my boys are... I did the research, I talked to men on both sides of the subject and found the best choice medically was to have it done as early as possible rather than making them wait til they are grown and have issues...

  • my youngest is NOT circumcized. i did a lot more research after my middle son's circumcision went very wrong and he ended up with a staff infection and in the pediatric unit for weeks. after that and with the stuff i learned i decided a cosmetic surgery was not something i wanted to do for my youngest.

  • I have two boys, ages 9 and 3 months, and both are circumsized.  I really didn't care either way and left it up to my husband.  I don't know what his reasoning was.

  • yes , my son is circumcized , because i believe its less chance of infections , and less embarrasing in the locker room.

  • Im pregnant with my first boy, who will not be circumcised. I don't feel the need to cut off a piece of my already perfect baby.

  • My boys are circumsized and it was because we thought it would be easier on both them and us. They are now 15 and 10.
