Couldn't find what you looking for?


Hi, i have been looking into the possibility of going under the knife and getting circumcised. I have not been promted to do this for medical reasons but it's something i have researched and want done. I was just wondering if anybody could give me advice on how to go about getting this done, along with info about the procedure, as well as costs for it etc. Anyone who has had the procedure done (for medical reasons or otherwise) comments and feeling after the procedure would be welcome, thanks.


There is nothing bad about being circumcised remember that. Male circumcision is a totally normal thing and a people are doing this for the medical reasons. When it comes to this procedure, it usually costs about 50 dollars, if you have a health insurance. If you don't, you will have to be prepared to pay between 1000 to 1500 dollars. After this procedure, you will need some time to recover. Usually, it takes two to three days, not longer. And whole this procedure lasts for one-hour maximum. Anyway, any other concerns you should ask your doctor, but if you need to do this, don't hesitate. There must be a good reason for it. 



Hi there, I think that this might be adouble post but I thought I should post on this just to see if this isn't. I think that this is something you can get done but it usually costs around $1,000 to get done (if you're in the US) but I've had it done. A friend of mine had it done later in life and he said the recovery sucks--you have to wait weeks before your penis is back to normal. What prompted you to get this done?


Hi Stgeorge:

Adult circumcision is an irreversible, elective surgical operation to injure the penis and reduce its size and sensation by cutting off the nerve-laden sexually sensitive foreskin. Adult circumcision is usually performed with a general anesthetic however local anesthetic may be used. Like all surgical operations, it has risks of hemorrhage, infection, and surgical mishap. Loss of the penis has been known to occur. Death has been known to occur.

The cost is about $2,500. Circumcision may be carried out under local or general anaesthesia.

The foreskin is a complex double-layered structure composed of smooth muscle fiber, skin, mucosa, nerves, arteries, and veins. It is natural, normal, healthy, and its possession contributes to a sense of well-being. The foreskin has protective, sensory, sexual, and immunological functions. It is loaded with nerves and is the site of most of the penile sensation. The foreskin is a “specific erogenous zone.” The foreskin is essential for normal intercourse. Foreskin provides the additional skin needed to allow for penile expansion during erection. Amputation of the foreskin, which is an integral and important part of the penis has very significant adverse sexual and emotional effects.
Nature put the foreskin there to provide at least fourteen functions:

1. to cover and bond with the synechia so as to permit the development of the mucosal surface of the glans and inner foreskin.
2. to protect the infant's glans from feces and ammonia in diapers.
3. To protect against disease causing pathogens.
4. to protect the glans penis from friction and abrasion throughout life.
5. to keep the glans moisturized and soft with emollient oils.
6. to lubricate the glans.
7. to coat the glans with a waxy protective substance.
8. to provide sufficient skin to cover an erection by unfolding.
9. to provide an aid to masturbation and foreplay.
10. to serve as an aid to penetration.
11. to reduce friction and chafing during intercourse.
12. to serve as erogenous tissue because of its rich supply of erogenous receptors.
13. to contact and stimulate the G-spot of the female partner.
14. to produce pheromones to excite the female sexual partner.

It is normal to keep the foreskin forward over the head for protection.
Circumcision is an injurious, damaging, destructive, and harmful surgical operation that cuts through nerves and blood vessels that feed blood to the penis. The operation is irreversible. You will have the rest of your life to mourn your loss of your erogenous foreskin.
The foreskin is filled with nerves that make it the most sensitive part of the human body, therefore, cutting into it is very painful.
It takes about six weeks to recover from an adult circumcision. One should avoid getting erections. Oral ketoconazole may help to prevent postoperative erections.

One will never fully regain the lost protection, sexual function, sensation, and sexual pleasure, even if one restores the foreskin.

If you should become interested in restoring your foreskin, a search on the Internet for “foreskin restoration” will produce lots of information.
