Benefits of circumcision in male infants and their families

Circumcision is a controversial topic that has led to parents having to balance religious, cultural and health considerations when deciding whether to circumcise their baby. In the recent past, medical facts were insufficient enough to support the claims of the health benefits of male circumcision. The tide has now turned. There are now a variety of medical researches that support the true value and benefits of male circumcision. These studies show that although some herpes viruses can be transmitted through the penis to men, the risk of contracting them is much lower when a man is circumcised.

Circumcision is, therefore, very safe. This method offers the best protection against HIV. This is confirmed by the American Society for Infectious Diseases (ASIDs), which estimates that up to 90 percent of the people exposed to HIV through unprotected sexual intercourse do not develop any symptoms. Unadopted children are not likely to be exposed to HIV and have no psychological or medical benefits.

Circumcision, therefore, provides no known benefits in itself. Parents who choose circumcision over other procedures can still reap the benefits. These are just a few of the many benefits.

There are many health benefits to newborn circumcision that go beyond medical. The main advantage parents have is that there is no risk of scarring or pain. There is a risk of scarring the genital area with the common practice rubber band ligation. This could cause psychological problems and pain for the child, especially in childhood.

This procedure is painless and offers minimal discomfort. This operation is also less painful than other methods of removing foreskin. A local anesthetic can be used to avoid most complications, such as the removal of pubic hairs. This is also true for newborn circumcision. After the procedure is over, there are no scarring. Parents can be sure that their genital areas will not be infected or irritated.

Parents can also benefit from routine circumcision by obtaining the paperwork necessary. This paperwork is easily accessible at hospitals and medical offices. It is cheaper to obtain this paperwork than after the procedure. This is because the majority of hospitals automatically send the paperwork out to parents for their consideration. These documents are not always provided at no cost. Parents who wish to have the procedure done should not have any difficulties.

Parents can reduce the risk of prenatal sex by circumcision. Parents can reduce the risks by using condoms or delaying intercourse. They can also choose to not have sexual relations in their teens and to take birth control tablets.

Like other reputable organizations the National Institutes of Health, the NIH has taken steps to ensure that the procedures are properly documented. To examine the RFS, a task force was formed. The task force reviewed research by several groups, including the American Medical Association and American Academy of Pediatrics. It also examined research done by the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists. The American Academy of Family Physicians and the American Family Planning Association. The American Psychological Association, CDC, World Health Organization and the United States Department of Health and Human Services. Based on this scientific evidence, the task force released a comprehensive report which provides parents with the information they need to make informed decisions regarding RFS.
