Health Benefits of Circumcision: The Difference Between Cut And Uncut Men
Circumcision is one of the most highly debated sexual health topics in the Medical community. Often times, people don't really feel comfortable talking about it. But, I would say and shout it loud "Lets talk about sex!" You never know what you are doing wrong until you hear from the experts based on their findings.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reported that there are issues we should be more concerned about - when dealing with uncircumcised partner- rather than worrying over the differences in appearance and sensation.
The heath institute announced this week that they are proposing new recommendation about elective circumcision. Doctors will be educating parent and male patients on the health benefits of circumcision, noting that research shows that it reduces the risk of sexually transmitted Diseases (STDs) such as HIV, Herpes and HPV.
According to Shape.com, when a guy is uncircumcised, moisture can get trapped between his penis and his foreskin, creating the ideal environment for bacteria to incubate. “Female sex partners of uncircumcised men are at increased risk of bacterial vaginosis,” says Supriya Mehta, Ph.D., an epidemiologist at the University of Illinois at Chicago. Guys who aren’t circumcised may also be more likely to pass along any infections they have, including yeast infections, UTIs, and STDs (particularly HPV and HIV).
Mary Jane Minkin, M.D. said within the last 20 years, more and more parents have elected to leave their boys uncircumcised, viewing the procedure as an unnecessary risk to their child. In fact, data from the CDC in 2013 found that just 58 percent of newborns born that year were circumcised, which is down from 65 percent in 1979. If that trend continues in a downward direction, young women today may be more likely to run into a man who's retained his foreskin. Still, Minkin says you should treat an uncut partner the same way you would a snipped partner—and that means still using a condom with any new guy. "Until you are totally sure you are in a mutually monogamous relationship and he has been tested and is negative for everything, then use a condom, circumcised or not."
