Has anyone used Oral Vitamin K instead of shot? Has anyone refused Vitamin K when circumcising?

Hi Yulia, not to argue with your main point, but it isn't true that Russian Jews never circ'd. My DH is Russian Jewish, and his generation was mostly not circ'd, but previous generations in his family were more religious and were definitely circ'd. Many (most?) prewar Russian Jews were more religious and lived in small communities where they were able to practice their religion. As I understand it, there was a big difference between the prewar and postwar generations in that regard.
I think it is true, at least for most part. I have NEVER heard of anyone circ (of course I had plenty of girls chats with my friends, like any other girl) and have never heard of ANYONE being circ.
