Re: Need some info on circing
The main benefit is lower risk of urinary tract infections. The insert my midwife gave said 1 in 10 circ boys will have a urinary tract infection and I believe it's like 1 in 6 uncirc boys will have one. Other benefits are minimal, some lower risk of contracting some STDs and HIV. There are other things to to consider like the type of circumcision if you're going to do it and who will do it and making sure proper pain relief is given. If you don't really want to than don't let anyone pressure you. They may make a fuss at first but they'll eventually forget about it. I believe the only good reason to do it would be a religious one or if they developed numerous UTIs but then it can be done later. More and more baby boys are not circ nowadays.
