Just curious, how did you decide whether or not to circumcise your son?
Both of my sons are cut. I wanted them to look like their dads. However when my youngest was circ'd, my ex went to see how it was done and he said never ever again would he subject a child of his to something like that, it was awful and he felt like he wanted to punch the doctor.
yes i got my son cir for health risk to be more cleaner down there
It wasn't a difficult decision for me. It's not medically necessary, I didn't want my newborn son to go through that kind of pain for something that wasn't necessary, and it's his penis. If he wants it cut down the road, that is up to him.
Just wanted to add that my mom has a vagina, but does not make the decisions regarding my vagina. And that my husband doesn't make all the decisions regarding my son and his penis, simply because he also has one.
My husband is and he wanted our son to be.
I let DH make the choice.
I let my husband make the choice. He wasn't done as a baby, had to be done at 19, and didn't want his kids going through that. I really had no strong opinion either way. I would have been fine leaving them intact and I would have been fine not. It was important to him that it be done, so we did it and have no regrets.
I asked my Mom what she did with her 3 sons. Dad didn't want it on the 2 older, Mom had it done on the younger. I asked my husband, who wasn't circ'd. He wanted our son circ'd. So we did.
I'm Jewish so there's was no real discussion about it. My husband was fully supportive though he isn't (he isn't Jewish either, though we're raising the kids Jewish and he celebrates and practices with us) and there was no doubt in either of our minds on the issue.
