I agree with everything Jo satiated above. I would not mention it to the doctor. I don't know if you are familiar with the story of David Reimer, chronicled in a book called "The boy who was raised...

Personally, I don't believe that this is a decision that a parent has any right to make. There is no medical need here. Nature did not make a mistake! The child has a basic personal human right to...

Your heart and mind are in the right place. I think it would be a terrible mistake to subject your third son to this barbaric custom, not only because it would be a huge disservice to him, but as a...

You seem to make the assumption that all members of the faith are on board with this tradition of "marking" male children. You might be interested in the following documentaries, which offer a...

I think you are basing your argument purely on "reports" propagated by the AAP and the CDC. As a colleague once said : "Figures always lie and liars always figure". To put it bluntly, those reports...

I'm pretty sure that they are both circumcised, which is why the OP is beating herself up over this. The adhesions are in the typical location for circumcision adhesions, or skin bridges, at the...
