Benefits of Circumcision
Circumcision is the process where the penile foreskin is removed surgically to reveal the end of the penile. Circumcision is done by most people around the globe and it can be done to babies or even teenagers depending on the culture. It is also recommended by most religions such as Christianity, Islam, and Judaism. There are various things one should look out for when taking their child or teenager for circumcision such as ensuring that the doctor is well experienced to do the surgery, ensure that the process is as pain-free as possible, be able to maintain good hygiene after the surgery and ensure that you get good medication both to facilitate healing as well as reduce the pain. This article will outline the benefits of circumcision.
Circumcision makes it easy to maintain good hygiene on the penile. Having removed the foreskin on the penile it is exposed making it easy to clean it. The foreskin also creates a fold where dirt and bacterial hide and when one bathes it is impossible to thoroughly clean the place well especially under the foreskin. When a child is circumcised they are able to stay clean and well-groomed all the time which helps to reduce bacterial infections.
With a clean and well-groomed penile, there is a great reduction of urinary tract infections which are most likely to occur when one is not circumcised. Urinary tract infections in men develop as a result of bacterial infections which could be caused by the presence of the foreskin since the foreskin enables the bacteria to have a hiding place. To prevent this from happening it is important that the foreskin is exposed and hygiene levels are improved.
Circumcision is a great way to reduce the risks of transmitting sexual infections. When a man is not circumcised it is very easy to transmit disease from themselves to the woman when they are having intercourse since the foreskin acts as a carrier that makes it easy to transmit the disease from the man to the woman. It is also easy for the foreskin to transfer the sexually transmitted infection from the woman to the man. In order to reduce this, it is important to ensure that circumcision takes place.
Penile cancer can be prevented through circumcision. We have seen that circumcision has a great deal of health benefits and penile cancer is one of them. When the penile is hygienically maintained there will be no bacterial infections. There is also a reduced risk of contracting sexually transmitted diseases which could be a trigger to penile cancer. Having been circumcised is a great way to reduce the risk of developing penile cancer and when one has it easier to fight it when circumcised. It also helps to reduce the risk of getting cervical cancer in the female counterparts.
Circumcision is also a good way to reduce penile problems and it helps to enhance sexual intercourse between two people. This comes from the confidence that a man has and a woman is able to enjoy the sexual encounters which improves relationships greatly.
