I was just talking to a friend of mine who said that her friend had to have her 7 and 8 yo sons circ'd because they kept getting UTI's and kidney infections. Is this common? She said it because of poor hygiene. She also said her mom is a family practitioner, and that circumcision is a good idea in this country because so many parents practice such poor hygiene that she sees 2 and 3 yo boys with their foreskins swollen shut. Huh? I'd be especially interested to hear from mamas who might have some ideas about how this progresses through adolescence and adulthood.
