Circumcision is a surgical procedure that removes the foreskin of the penis. It’s most common in newborn babies but can also be performed later in life. Some people choose to have a circumcision for religious reasons, while others do it for personal hygiene reasons or because they believe it makes sex more pleasurable for them or their partner.

If you’re young, don’t force your foreskin to retract. If the foreskin is partially retracted, it will probably cause less irritation and be easier to clean.

If your foreskin retracts when you’re younger, don’t force it to go back. It will be easier to clean and probably cause less irritation than a partially retracted foreskin.

If your foreskin retracts when you’re older, don’t force it to go back. This can cause pain and discomfort.

Talk to your doctor or another medical professional if your foreskin hasn’t retracted by puberty.

If your foreskin hasn’t retracted by the time you’ve reached puberty, speak to your doctor or another medical professional about it. If they suggest that circumcision is necessary, they’ll usually be able to do the procedure right then and there without taking you back to surgery later.

If your foreskin has been retracted but won’t stay that way—and if no underlying medical condition is present—then you can try manually pulling it back with a lubricated glove for several days in a row (do not pull on any tissue other than the foreskin). Again, though, this must be done cautiously and carefully; if any pain or bleeding occurs at any point during this process, discontinue immediately and contact a health care provider for further advice.

An adult man may need or want to get circumcised for several reasons, but medical necessity is the most common.

If you’re considering circumcision, there are several reasons why an adult man might need or want to get circumcised, but medical necessity is the most common one. Circumcision can be advised for men with phimosis (a condition in which the foreskin is too tight and cannot be fully retracted), balanitis (inflammation of the head of the penis) and recurrent urinary tract infections. However, it should be noted that some physical complications are associated with circumcisions, such as bleeding, infection and swelling. Psychological complications include anxiety and depression.

Among adult circumcisions, phimosis is caused by narrowing of the foreskin opening, preventing it from pulling back over the glans.

The most common medical reason for circumcision in adulthood is phimosis or narrowing of the opening of the foreskin that prevents it from pulling back over the glans. This condition is common in young children but can also occur in adults. Phimosis can cause pain and irritation, leading to infections and scarring if left untreated.

Infections that cause parasitic scarring can constrict the opening and require circumcision.

The most common reason for circumcision is phimosis, a condition in which the foreskin becomes tight and cannot be pulled back over the head of your penis. This causes pain, discomfort during urination, and difficulty keeping clean. Circumcision can also be performed if you have balanitis—a swelling of the tip of your penis that may cause painful urination.

While these are legitimate reasons for having a circumcision in some cases, there are other instances where it’s not necessary:

  • 1. If you have a parasitic infection in your foreskin that leads to scarring within the tissue and constricts its opening (phimosis).
  • 2. If phimosis doesn’t respond to stretching exercises within six months or so after puberty has begun (this is rare).

Male circumcision may also treat glanitis (inflammation of the glans) and recurrent urinary tract infections.

Other conditions that may be treated with circumcision include balanitis (inflammation of the glans) and recurrent urinary tract infections in men.

A bacterial infection usually causes balanitis, but a yeast infection can also cause it. In either case, antibiotics are prescribed to treat it. If the condition does not respond to antibiotics, an antifungal cream may be used instead.

Circumcision can cause bleeding and infection at the surgical site, swelling of the penis, painful urination, and tenderness.

    • 1. Bleeding. Various physical complications can arise from circumcisions, such as bleeding and infection at the site of the surgery, swelling of the penis, painful urination and tenderness.
    • 2. Infection. The foreskin is an important organ that protects against bacteria entering your baby’s body during urination, so once it’s removed, it can leave your son vulnerable to urinary tract infections (UTIs).
    • 3. Swelling. The skin around the tip of your baby’s penis may become swollen after you circumcise him if he has any swelling-related medical condition such as edema or lymphedema that causes his tissues to retain fluid. If this happens, see your doctor immediately so they can determine whether or not there’s been any permanent damage done.


Some uncircumcised men experience psychological discomfort. They may experience anxiety during sexual activity and depression.

  • 1. Psychologically, some uncircumcised men experience discomfort associated with their condition. This can manifest in anxiety during sexual activity and depression related to their appearance.
  • 2. Whether or not you want to circumcise your child is a personal choice. There are no medical reasons why a man should have his foreskin removed, but it is important to note that circumcision does not provide 100% protection against STDs such as herpes, syphilis, or AIDS (the virus that causes AIDS). The American Academy of Pediatrics states that “circumcision has potential medical benefits,” but that there is not enough evidence to recommend routine infant male circumcision for health reasons.

Circumcision is not always necessary.

You may be surprised to learn that circumcision is not always necessary. There are many reasons why people choose to have their sons circumcised, but it is a personal choice. Any religion does not require circumcision, and it does not prevent you from being Jewish or Muslim if you choose not to circumcise your son. If you are considering having your son circumcised for health reasons, keep in mind that there are no proven medical benefits of circumcision for newborns. In fact, some studies have shown that uncircumcised boys have fewer urinary tract infections than those who are circumcised at birth (or later on).

It is important to remember that the decision whether or not to circumcise your son should be made with consideration of all factors involved—not just what others think or expect of parents today.


Whether you decide to get circumcised or not, you must make an informed decision. There are many factors to consider, including medical necessity, cultural tradition and personal preference. If you’re thinking of getting circumcised and need more information on the risks and benefits, consult with your doctor or another medical professional before making any decisions about your health care.

Frequently Asked Questions

What happens if I circumcise myself?

This is difficult to answer without knowing more about your particular circumstances. If you are considering circumcising yourself, it is important to speak with a medical professional first to ensure that it is the right decision for you and to find out the best way to do it.

There are many risks associated with circumcision, and performing the procedure on oneself increases the likelihood of complications. Without proper knowledge and equipment, you could end up causing serious injury or even death. Therefore, you must speak with a medical professional before taking any action.

Can you circumcise with scissors?

No, scissors are not the appropriate tool for performing a circumcision. Circumcision must be done with a sharp instrument that can make a clean cut through the skin and tissue. Scissors will not provide a clean enough cut and could cause serious injury.

Is it possible to self-circumcise?

There are a few ways to go about self-circumcision, but it is generally not recommended. The most common method involves using a sharp object to remove the foreskin, but this can be extremely dangerous and result in serious injury. Even if done correctly, there is a risk of infection and scarring. For these reasons, it is best to leave circumcision to trained medical professionals.

Can you circumcise yourself at an older age?

Yes, you can circumcise yourself at an older age. The process is called adult circumcision, and it is a minor surgical procedure. There are two methods of adult circumcision: the traditional method and the laser method. The traditional method is more invasive and requires stitches, while the laser method is less invasive and does not require stitches. Adult circumcision is typically done for religious or cultural reasons.

What does Self Circumcision Kit include? 

A self-circumcision kit includes everything you need to safely and effectively remove your own foreskin. The kit typically contains a sterile scalpel, bandages, antiseptic wipes, and instructions for use. Self-circumcision is a relatively simple procedure that can be completed in minutes with minimal discomfort. Although it is possible to self-circumcise without a kit, it is highly recommended that you use one to reduce the risk of infection and ensure proper healing.

Which age is best for self Circumcision?

Most people think the best age to get circumcised is as an infant. Newborns are routinely circumcision in many hospitals. The main reason why parents circumcise their infants is that they believe it’s cleaner. They also think that if they do it when the child is too young to remember, he won’t have any psychological trauma associated with the procedure. 

Many experts now recommend waiting until boys are old enough to make their own decision about circumcision. This age varies depending on cultural and religious beliefs but is typically around 10 years old or adolescence. The advantage of this approach is that boys can choose whether or not they want to be circumcised and won’t have any memory of the procedure if they decide to go through with it.
