For many reasons, circumcision facts matter. The fact that almost all males possess at least one intact genital is something most people know. But we often do not know much more about it. We don’t know how common this procedure is. This article will attempt some light on the topic.
First, it is important that we emphasize the fact that there are no accepted circumcision facts. These are just myths. Some of these myths are so old that they have their own chapter in medical historical, while others date back to ancient Egypt. Fortunately, most of these myths are just that: they are based on common folk lore. Here is what I found.
One of the biggest myths about this practice is that it can be dangerous or painful. Circulation is often impaired during the procedure. As a result, some babies cannot nurse properly. These babies are often given formula milk to help them eat the right nutrients, but it is almost impossible to breastfeed. The “platelet effect” is a condition that impairs circulation in newborns.
Parents should also be aware that uncircumcised penises can be more sensitive than those who have been circumcised. They are not more sensitive, in fact. Circulation can be impaired only if the foreskin is damaged or removed. The skin is removed by circumcision, just like shaving. Sensitive skin is not affected.
Other myths state that baby boy’s will develop phobias and autism later in life if they aren’t circumcised. These myths are merely rumors. There are no studies that compare uncircumcised boys with circumcised children. These myths persist. These myths continue to circulate for one reason: Americans are more likely think negative things about other culture than they are about other cultures.
It is safe and can be reversed if performed by a professional. Over 95% of men will not have any problems with reoccurring. Only three cases of infection, or even death, have been reported out of hundreds upon thousands. It is a fact that most circumcisions in America are performed by doctors who are experts in the procedure.
Doctors from the American Academy of Pediatrics, the Royal College of Paediatrics in Britain and the American Medical Association have all recommended routine circumcision for children as an infant. These groups have conducted extensive research on the subject. They know that there is no danger and that the benefits are far greater than any negative things that could be claimed to be reasons some men may not want this procedure. They also know that there is no connection between the male sexual organs and any disease. It is possible to have a reduced incidence of certain types cancers in men.
As a medically necessary procedure, insurance companies should cover circumcision. If you are going to get the procedure done, you should research all of your options very carefully. It is important to understand how the procedure works, and what you can expect from it. Look into the medical evidence supporting the decision to have this procedure done. Then, choose the doctor who will perform it. Be sure that the doctor does not have an aversion to foreskin stretching.
One of the most well-known circumcision facts is that it is impossible to have sexually transmitted infections if you are not circumcised. This is false. Men who are not circumcised are more likely to contract herpes, genital warts, gonorrhea or even HIV. And although doctors do not believe that the loss of the foreskin causes the diseases, they are not recommending that babies are born uncircumcised.
One common truth about circumcision is the fear of complications. This is false. This is not true. Most doctors prefer to perform these operations when the child’s young. The operation is less painful for both the doctor and the child, even if the child is too young for awareness of their genitalia. Many doctors even recommend it to very young babies who are worried about having penises.
Another important fact you might be interested to know about circumcision is that most neonatal male babies will not require any form of corrective surgical procedure regarding the penis. In many cases, the foreskin simply retracts on its own in the course of a single sexual act. A topical cream can temporarily make the penis appear larger if there are any concerns about the size or tightness. A surgical procedure called plucking can also be used to remove a small amount of fat. These are just a few of the facts that you need to know about circumcision.
