Adult Men Circumcision
Adult men are often not married and can have their foreskin removed by a doctor. Some
hospitals may not be willing to allow this procedure to take place. If you are considering getting
circumcised, be aware that the recovery period may be longer for men who have been married
for many years. Although discomfort can be a side effect, the benefits outweigh the
inconvenience. This article will discuss the procedure and what you can expect.
There are risks associated with adult men circumcision, including bleeding, hematoma, infection,
inadvertent damages to the glans, excessive skin removal, and aesthetic unappealing outcomes.
Other risks include discomfort during intercourse, such as pain and disruption to the suture line.
You will be asked not to have intercourse for up to six weeks after the procedure to fully heal.
This is a good option for anyone who has had genital infections or a history of genital warfare. It
is the best treatment for genital warts or lichen sclerosus. Other complications include scarring
and tightening around the penis. In rare cases, circumcision may prove to be the only option. For
this reason, a doctor will recommend adult men circumcision when other treatments have failed.
In general, adult men circumcision takes two to three weeks. Some individuals may require a
week of rest and may not return to work for six weeks. Other complications include problems
with the foreskin and problematic circumcision scars. The pain following this procedure is usually
mild. Your doctor may prescribe a pain reliever or an antibiotic to avoid infection. If the pain
continues, your doctor may recommend another procedure to treat the infection.
While circumcision is a great choice for many men it is not always a popular choice for all. One
study from Zambia found that men’s willingness to undergo SMC was strongly affected by their
partner’s attitudes towards it. Women can also influence circumcision readiness by using “soft”
language or denying sex. It is important for you to know that most of the men in this research did
not inform their spouses about their circumcision.
A circumcision can be performed if a man is suffering from persistent health problems. Most
males have their penises circumcised at birth, but an uncircumcised penis is just as easy to
clean. An intact penis is more attractive than one that has been shaved or cut. Lastly, men may
choose to have adult men circumcised to remove the stigma that comes with being called a
A doctor will place a needle through the Buck’s facia and in the caudadof the penis to perform an
adult man circumcision. To minimize bleeding, a subcutaneous “U” stitch is preferred. In
addition, the cut edges of the foreskin are closed with simple interrupted stitches, made with 4-0
or 5-0 absorbable sutures. The sutures should be separated at every 4-7 mm. Petroleum gauze
and a dressing are given to the patient.
These results suggest that VMMC has more benefits than the stigma. Men may also benefit from
a reduced risk of HPV, which can lead to cervical cancer. Intimacy and confidence may be
increased by circumcision. While circumcision does not protect gay men from anal infidelity, it
does reduce the risk for HIV infection. This study has important findings that are worth looking
into and will be of value to policymakers as well as health care providers.
According to the CDC, and the World Health Organization estimates, circumcised people are
less likely HIV-positive. It is also associated lower rates of HPV infection and herpes in penis. It
is not known if circumcision can prevent cervical cancer. There is no evidence that circumcision
increases the risk of developing cervical carcinoma in circumcised men. Before you decide
whether an adult men’s circumcised penis or an uncircumcised is better, consult your doctor.
The procedure can be performed on any adult man. The procedure usually takes around 30
minutes and is performed under general painkillers. The surgeon makes small incisions behind
the head of your penis, then removes your entire foreskin. To reduce discomfort, local
anesthesia is used afterwards. The recovery process takes seven to ten days. The surgical site
might be red, swollen or filled with yellow fluid.
