  • Circumcision. Part 2

    Posted on June 21st, 2012 Patricia No comments

    The baby may be taken out of your room, and the physician or mohel (an expert trained to perform the medical procedure and the Jewish ceremony of circumcision) will clamp the skin and cut it off. It is minor surgery, but many mothers say they would rather not be in the room during the procedure.

    Over the years, the American Academy of Pediatrics has changed its position on circumcision. In the past it has said that all boys should be circumcised, which was later modified to say that they didn’t recommend circumcision. The current position is that circumcision is an elective procedure that should be determined by parental preference.

    Some literature suggests that circumcised males have:

    Fewer urinary tract infections in childhood
    Lower rate of penile cancer
    May be less susceptible to HIV
    Other literature suggests that good hygiene reduces the risk of problems, whether or not the boy or man is circumcised.

    If you choose not to circumcise your son, you need to retract the foreskin during the bath to clean out any smegma that may be between the penis and foreskin. Retracting the foreskin daily helps prevent adhesions from forming. As time goes on, you will need to teach your son to do this for himself, so that a painful condition called phimosis does not develop. Phimosis is the formation of adhesions, stiff tissue that keeps the foreskin from retracting. It makes erections painful or difficult to achieve.

    There are hardly any problems associated with either circumcision or simply leaving the penis as it is. But, before your due date, think about whether you want the procedure done.

    When you are having erectile dysfunction or impotency, don’t get depressed more, as now you may purchase viagra jelly to help you maintain your erection.
