Circumcision regrets or not?

3 years after my husbands vasectomy he apparently grew a third vas deferens and I became pregnant with #4, a boy this time. (I have 3 daughters)

After reading that the AAP and Dr. Sears both say there is no medical reason for circumcision we are fairly certain we aren't doing it.  However my husband is circumcised, and I'm a woman so tough call.

Anyone have uncirsumcized sons or hubbies? Regrets?  Circumcized a baby a regretted it?  Opinions?

No regrets here. DS is 7 years old and he hasn't had any problems.

And right there - is where it starts to get ugly.  This topic always turns into a debate for people rather than just giving the OP the answers they're looking for.  Reese you are being abrasive and rude because someone mentioned a simple factual trend for this site that is backed up historically with tons of posts on this topic.

That said, I hope you do get the input that you're looking for.  I have 2 girls, but TTC and if it's a boy this time we'll again be have this as a consideration to ponder.

Quoting ReeseStrickland:

No I'm not. Two questions, Did you circumcize and regret or did you not circumcize and regret.  Very simple, so far you are the only ugly thing about this conversations.  If you're so comfortable with your decision then settle down and go comment somewhere else, there is no need for ugliness.  I am just getting as much info and opinions as possible before making a final decision.
