Did you get your son circumcised or no? If so which method did your hospital use.

I did but wish I didn't. I got my first son BC I was young and didn't know any better. Did my second BC well my first son was fine....never did my own research on it and I now regret it. It wasn't done properly and some of the skin grew back. I am pregnant again and will not if its a boy. All I can say is watching the videos online where it is done broke my heart and was enough to change my mind. I couldn't do that to my child knowing now what they grow through and knowing it isn't medically nessecary at all.

I don't have a penis so that decision will remain up to my husband.

Since he is not circumcized, I am willing to bet that he will say no to circumcision.

My DH is circumsized and our son will be also. I only know two men who are not(my Dad and a previous bf) and both wish they had been.  I trust my Dad and he had both of his sons circ'd.

I prefer my sons genitals unmutilated thanks. If he wants cosmetic surgery to make it smaller and less sensitive as an adult then that's his choice.

Our son will not be circumcised.

You all are ridiculous. Dh was and is thrilled his parents did it. He insisted our DS was as well. He'll thank us later.

After watching this video about a year ago is when I decided that I would not be circumcising anymore.


Quoting HoneyPlum:

If anyone can watch this and still decide to mutilate their baby, then they are horrible people in my book.
