Circumcision or not
Posted on: 07/16/2007
hi im 13 and i was wondering...would it hurt to have sex without being circumcised...im on a point to decide if i want to be circumcised...i really don't know if it will hurt....please help me....
Sexual intercourse does NOT hurt. It does not matter if you are circumcised or uncircumcised, it should not hurt.
If masturbation, intercourse or any other sex act hurts see a doctor.
Don't feel rushed in making your decision, you can be circumcised at any time in life. If this is a cultural or religious decision - discuss it carefully with your parents, your doctor and your religious leader.
