    My first son was circumcised, no problem. The second, not so much. I already had reservations about doing it becuase I had done quite a bit of research in between son #1 being born and #2 and found that it wasn’t necessary AT ALL. My husband still wanted to do it so I agreed. During his first diaper change he started bleeding A LOT! I hemorrhaged after his birth really bad so it had already been a traumatic couple of days. That was the last straw for me! I swore if we had any more children I wouldn’t circumcise them! It was absolutely not worth it. My sweet, tiny, precious baby was covered in blood from his shoulders to his toes…all for a look. I felt like the worst parent ever. It’s the ONLY time in the 2 years I’ve been a parent that I regretted a decision I had made.

    Carly, this is such a terrible story, what happened to cause that bleeding? Of course it wasn’t your fault, do not blame yourself! Thank you for sharing this…


    The foreskin isn’t just a useless floppy bit of skin. Scientists state that the foreskin is analogous to the female clitoris in that it contains many sensitive nerve endings which aid in male pleasure. In a woman’s genitals the clitoris has the largest concentration of nerve endings 8,000 with 3,000 in the virginal opening. In men the foreskin has the largest concentration of nerve endings 20,000 with only 4,000 in the glans (head).Study’s have found that uncircumcised men have 4 times the feeling that circumcised men do. Not only do you lose the feeling from the 20,000 nerve endings. The head becomes less sensitive as well In virtually all European countries the HIV rates are way LOWER than in the United States. And other STD occur at either lower or similar rates as well. Ditto for China, Japan, Australia, and other non-circumcising countries throughout the world.Urinary track infection in males are less then 1.% .020 circumcised .024 uncircumcised and penile cancer are the same as the United States 1 in 100,000 research has shown that in societies where good healthcare and high hygiene standards prevail there are hardly any medical benefits from circumcision. When it comes to preventing STD’s, for instance, a much more effective approach is the simple use of condoms. It should be noted that Prof. Morten Frisch’s study, which was questioned by Frank, has incorporated a number of measures to ensure the statistical validity of the data as well as peer review, which is of course the very reason it was deemed fit to be published in a respectable international medical journal in the first place.
    Prof. Frisch’s study suggests that a significantly larger number of circumcised men report sexual problems than do their intact peers. In addition, women in relationships with circumcised males report sexual problems more frequently than do women with intact partners.
