Re: What were your medical reasons for circumcising?

The rate for circumcision complication is 2%

There are other genetic medical reasons for circumcision, but those are easily discovered at birth and usually require waiting until the baby is older for surgery with a specialist (stuff like pee holes on the side of the glans).
