Reasons to Consider Circumcision
Men decide to undergo circumcision for a myriad of reasons. From addressing discomfort to treating health concerns, male circumcision has countless benefits. Dr. Bidair removes the penile foreskin to help men maintain their penile health, hygiene, and appearance.
The removal of the foreskin can allow for more direct access to the glans penis (head of the penis) for easier cleaning. Also, removing the foreskin is a measure in helping to reduce build-up of discharge around the penis that can lead to irritation and/or infections, such as in the case of balanitis and balanoposthitis.
Decrease in Urinary Tract Infections
Urinary tract infections (UTIs) are fairly uncommon in males. However, the prevalence of UTIs is significantly higher in uncircumcised males than those who are circumcised. Severe bouts of urinary tract infections (including untreated infections) can cause issues with kidney function.
Less Risk of Sexually Transmitted Infections and Diseases (STIs & STDs)
Research has shown that circumcised men may experience fewer instances of sexually transmitted infections, including HIV, when compared to uncircumcised men. In either case, it is still very important to practice safe and protected sex.
Phimosis and paraphimosis can cause pain and damaging penile issues. When the foreskin cannot be pulled over the head of the penis in either direction because it is too tight, the penis can become trapped inside of the tissue. The foreskin will squeeze the penis, potentially impeding proper circulation. This is a medical emergency that can lead to penile cell death.
Reduced Risk of Cancer
Penile cancer in circumcised men is less common than instances of cancer in men who are uncircumcised. Also, the female partners of men who have their foreskin removed are less likely to develop cervical cancer.
Male Circumcision Benefits for Women
According to many health studies, the benefits of male circumcision for women are quite impressive. Sexual, reproductive, and vaginal health can all be affected by the circumcision status of their male partners. While every woman is unique, a fact remains: the vagina, and its respective organs are a very sensitive part of the body.
Stated blatantly, male circumcision increases women’s satisfaction during intercourse. A Ugandan researcher reported that circumcised men were able to maintain longer erections and wanted to engage in sex more often. This, in turn, was shown to be a benefit for their female partners.1
The female partners of circumcised men were also found to have fewer instances of sexually transmitted diseases and infections (STDs and STIs, respectively). According to one study, HPV, genital herpes, syphilis, trichomoniasis, and HIV rates in women whose most recent male partner was circumcised were lower than those whose partner was uncircumcised. Research indicates that circumcision has a protective effect against some sexually transmitted diseases and infections.2
Male circumcision can reduce a woman’s risk of cervical cancer. As stated before, female partners of circumcised males were less likely to contract HPV (Human Papillomavirus). HPV is a common cause of cervical cancer in women. Women with cervical cancer in advanced stages may need to undergo treatments that can impact their fertility. Chemotherapy, radiation treatment, and surgery can each significantly lower or totally eliminate a woman’s possibility of future pregnancy.
Be remembered for the right reasons by opting for adult male circumcision. Contact Dr. Bidair’s office for an appointment.
A good hygiene regimen is important for anyone. Uncircumcised men may have trouble effectively keeping the penis clean under the foreskin. This can introduce infectious agents to the vagina of their female partners. Likely, a woman’s pH balance may be affected by the hygiene of their male partners, further enhancing the likelihood of vaginal infections such as bacterial vaginosis and yeast infections. Suffice it to say, male circumcision can help lower their female partner’s risk of developing vaginal infections.
About Male Circumcision
Male circumcision is a surgical procedure to remove the penile foreskin. Men may decide to undergo adult male circumcision to address the appearance, functional, and/or health concerns they may experience. By removing or reducing the foreskin, men may experience fewer complications and may have reduced risk of penile issues.

Will I lose sensation after circumcision?
The purpose of circumcision is to remove excess skin from the penis. This skin is referred to as the penile foreskin. Circumcision does not interfere with the areas of the penis that have significant nerve endings, such as the glans penis (head of the penis). Therefore, sensation and sexual satisfaction should not be hindered or diminished.
Does circumcision impact fertility?
As circumcision from Dr. Bidair solely removes the foreskin from the penis, fertility is not affected by the procedure. In some aboriginal cultures, traditional/ritual circumcision may be meant to reduce a male’s ability to reproduce. Medical circumcision does not interfere with the reproductive structures of the penis or testes.
