What are the advantage n disadvantage of circumcision(cut penis)


Hi Tamala, this is a good question. Circumcision is done for a variety of reasons. In some places, it shows how men belong to a certain religion, ethnic group, or tribe. In other situations, parents have their sons circumcised for hygiene or health reasons.

According to some research, compared to uncircumcised men, circumcised men have a lower risk of:

Urinary tract infections
Chancroid disease

Some scientists believe that circumcised men have a lower risk of infections because without a foreskin, there is less of a moist environment for germs to grow.

With a circumcised penis, the head may be less sensitive, so the man can go on longer during intercourse before ejaculating. For some men this can be a bonus.

Critics of circumcision argue that it has disadvantages, such as:

Reduced sensitivity – an uncircumcised penis is more sensitive than a circumcised penis, meaning that circumcised men may experience less pleasure during sex.

Potential complications of circumcision – these include excessive bleeding, post-operative infection and, in rare cases, injury to the urethra. These complications are thought to outweigh any potential benefits.
