Re: circumcision?

WOW! I must be the only confused mama here. I voted... I didn't but maybe should have, because of stories I have read and heard about 5 and 6 year old's all of a sudden having to get circ, because it was due to their pain or removing the pain and I would remove my son's pain if it came down to that.

Re: circumcision?

My son is not circumcised. If he ever decided to do it he is more than welcome. There is no accurate medical information out there really regarding too much of either side. It is a vital sex organ and protects the head and shaft....I just dont see any valid reasoning and I dont consider cosmetic reasoning valid. Just my totally to each their own. Its his body-his penis-his choice for sure.

Re: circumcision?

I did not and would never. I really don't understand the reasons for routine infant circumcision. I was planning on having DS circ'd b/c I thought that was what ppl did. I am so so so thankful to the woman who encouraged me to research it and make a decision rather than "going with the flow". Now that I have looked at a plethora of information I consider myself an intactivist and regularly talk with my friends of childbearing age about this topic. Whether you do or don't circ I encourage you to research and make the decision for yourself.

Re: circumcision?

I don't know exactly how to vote. Our first son is circumcised; dh insisted on it for religious reasons. I wish he weren't but do I regret it? No...regret isn't worth a damn. Our second son is intact and will remain that way until he makes the decision otherwise.

Re: circumcision?

I did and would do it again,, but with a dif doctor.. the one we used didnt check for hypospadias and my son had/has it.. normally they would use the forskin to fix it. but he just did it.. he has some extra skin left and i am hoping someday he can make the decision if he wants to have it fixed or not..

Re: circumcision?

I can't vote, as I have three daughters, but should we be blessed with any sons in the future they will not be circumcised.

Re: circumcision?

I didnt vote, there isnt a option for me. My son is and Im not sure if a future son will or wont be. We will decide then.

Re: circumcision?

I have 2 girls.. so I can't vote. But if we had a son he would be circ'd and any future boys would be too. That's all hypothetical as well .... My last kiddo is just over 24 hours old.
