hello i dont belong here bc i dont have a baby nor do i Even have a BFP But my friend just had a boy (whom im watching right now) and shes a nurse she said if your gonna get it done and they ask u if u wanna see it being done say no! it'll scar you to see ur baby in pain and seeing what they r doing to him! she saw one being done (being a nurse)and still had her son done his peins is actually the 1st ever baby penis i've ever seen cut! my cuzn had a boy and left him "Natural" bc the FOB was "Natural" and she prefers natural men... lol I've had glimpses of "Natural penis" not that big of a fan sorry! my DH is cut and our son will be cut bc we don't want him asking "why doesn't my pee pee look like papi's? LOL so i'm a firm believer in if the dads cut or not the baby should be the same or he'll feel different and every boy whats to be like there papi!

I saw a video of a circumcision (after we had already made our decision) while researching a paper and I was incredibly traumatized. I think even if we hadn't already decided not to do it I would have made that decision after seeing the video.

my fiance is circumcised; i don't really think of that as an issue, the two of them looking a little different. i had to seek out a midwife in the US (again, what is standard in europe is not so easy in much of the US - we have regular OBs everywhere but i wanted less "medical" and more "natural" care for my pregnancy) and thankfully they are great, and recently gave us our birth plan form where we get to decide everything without pressure, including circumcision. i asked my fiance about it and even though he is a US-born guy who is circumcised himself, he just said "i don't see why we need to have that done" . i was relieved that we were on the same page about it.

My hubby is cut but that was done as a child because his skin was not growing the same and became too tight (soz!)


His went wrong and he has a lot of scars and other things i wont mention lol. Obviously it still works as this is his 10th child ha ha!

But ive never even considered my boys being done and this is my 4th son!

Gawd hed kill me if he knew id been discussing his 'thing'!!!!

I am on the fence about it myself. My older son is cut, it was his dad's decision. His dad was cut and thought it may be hard to explain later on if his son looked different and why he was different and all that. I honestly felt SO bad for the little guy though when they did it that I'm having doubts this time around. This baby has a different dad who lets me make most of the important decisions so if I say no he'll go along with it. I remember that they did it in the hospital when he was only a day old and they only gave him tylenol for pain.... that's what bothers me the most is the pain part. I felt really cruel and made my Ex be the one with him when it was done. Then for a week afterward he would SCREAM every time he peed because it burned so bad. I am having a really hard time with the idea this time because I just don't see the necessity. It has no religious value to us and would be entirely cosmetic. My DH has stated he thinks it should be done but his only reason is because everyone does it here. He just assumes that everyone does it because it's good to do.

I've never even met a guy who wasn't circumcised though... anyone know if there are other benefits to not doing it? Does it feel different for them later in life? (like, are they more sensitive if they are uncut than when cut?) I am leaning towards the idea of not doing it and if he doesn't like it let him have it done himself later in life when he can make that choice himself. It's hard as a woman to be certain of this when I have no idea what difference it will make to him as he gets older.

I live in the UK and OH was cut at birth for medical reasons but our son will not be

Its a funny thing, after seeing both types of penises I would go for the cut one

I am pretty sure it is more sensitive if left natural because when it is cut it gets rubbed all the time on undies so there is a bit more sensitivity since it is protected. Also it is meant to be better for sex because it has give iykwimlike more movement (not that these are things a mummy wants to think about) As far as I am concerned as long as he washes his privates, he is perfectly fine. I have always said a girls parts are FAR more likely to get infected than any form of penis and we dont go around freaking out about that and cutting parts off her. That is what I tell my sis and she cant think of an argument for it
