I know this has been discussed a million times-final update#75.

but argh, I'm so annoyed and hurt right now. We're having our first boy, and my husband and I cannot agree on circumcision. "He" has a million reasons why it should be done, and doesn't care what is really fact vs opinion, or what's really been disproven, and I honestly have two plain and simple reasons.

I think my baby will be born perfectly just the way he should be, and I don't want to hurt the baby for something so superficial.

We went to the doc today, and my husband brought it up, and the doctor was obviously very pro circ. "Do you want the pros or cons first?" I said cons. "Well, there really isn't any cons unless you're doing it for religious reasons." Pros: and then had a grocery shopping list of "reasons". My husband literally silently cheering him on. Then my husband went to work and asked all the guys if their sons were or not, only one wasn't, and naturally the one had to say, "I wish we would have" (wether this was from peer pressure or legit).

We were talking about it a bit ago, and I just started crying, and he said, "okay well we don't have to talk about it while you're pregnant." I feel so nauseated thinking about it. I looked up the method the doctor uses and it just made it worse. BLEGH!!

I don't know how any medical professional can say there are "no cons". How sad.

From my experience, liberally minded health care providers, as well as those who are truly seeking to be the best docs they can be leave the military service ASAP. For those that stay, their job is typically 60% military and 40% healthcare while using outdated equipment. I was a USAF flight medic once upon a time and one of the predominate reasons DH and I separated from the USAF was because we very strongly agreed that there were way better health care options for our children. The medical referral process within military healthcare is also predominately based on cost - so sad.

We are seeing a civilian provider and nowhere near a military installation. So, its not the case in this scenerio. However he's the only delivering physician who takes our insurance in the area (and hes 40 miles away)

It depends on the base and doctors. I have gotten far better care on base and the off base care, especially for my son at our major Children's Hospital which is highly regarded has been very poor both times we went. I have gotten very expensive/innovative treatments done at our base and most of the equipment at our base is new and they haven't withheld anything from us. Referral management is done by a private company and they are a nightmare but those are two very different things.

Our good friends are having the same debate. She thinks it's completely unnecessary and her brother is intact and just fine. Her DH is circ'd and is playing the "look like daddy" card. She's really not sure how to handle it because she feels like since she doesn't have a penis, she just doesn't understand.

Because not all "professionals" are truly educated.

My husband left it up to me. He said that if there are any ill effects in the future it will be on me! Like if he 'gets made fun of' in the locker room it will be my fault. Just straight tell him you aren't getting it done unless he can come up with a good enough reason to do it and 'because everyone else does it' isn't a good reason.
