I am currently pregnant with my second child, I do not know what we are having as of yet. We have a daughter who will be two in Jan but I would like to know some opinions on our circumstances with circumcision..
My partners family carries a gene that can cause a defect with the penis. I dont know the name of it but this is roughly what it is...
The uretha that should follow through the whole penis and finish at the tip, actually finishes anywhere between. So it can finish at the base and the hole is at the side where the wee will come out.
Now what I would like to know is as my partner had this when he was an infant and was born circumsized would it be appropriate if we have a boy who is born with out the defect to have him circumsized to be like his daddy or should we leave him.
Keeping in mind that chances are he will have this defect as so far all the close men in the family have had it.
