Re: S/O Thread : Share Positive Circ Stories

My DS was circumcised in the hospital after he was born, we had no complications, it healed up fine and looks great today at 12 months. I have read a lot of anti-circ things as well as watched a number of "live" videos of circ's, and while it makes me feel sad, I am happy with our decision. My DH says he doesnt remember his as a baby, he also doesnt remember being born and being smooshed out the birth canal, since that probably hurt a lot too. (please take no offense, he is a joker)
All in all, we had a good experience and I can always say we had it done due to DS's genetic mild hypospadias which would have made having a foreskin a cleanliness/infection issue according to our Ped...
all of my future sons will most likely have the exact same thing as well (since it has genetically been there for 4 + generations) and we will most likely circumcise them too.
I know its a really tough decision, DS will have 2 uncircumcised cousins this spring, but for us, for now, this is what we want
