8 Benefits of Circumcision

Before we go into this article, you should also read about the benefits of circumcision using the latest device – ZSR circumcision Malaysia. For a long time, the decision to go for circumcision has been associated with religious or cultural beliefs among the Jewish and Islamic communities. But all that has since changed when factors such as personal hygiene and preventive healthcare are taken into account which leads to this article explaining the benefits of circumcision. Whatever the reason for having circumcision, it all boils down to the benefits you are looking forward to getting. Read on to find out what you can gain from circumcision.

Circumcision is the surgical procedure of removing the foreskin covering the tip of the penis. In western countries, circumcision is done on boys a few days after they are born. But in Malaysia, it is done on teenage boys or men as a traditional rite of passage. The health benefits of circumcision include:

1. Personal hygiene

An uncircumcised penis is daunting to clean since the foreskin tends to accommodate and provides a conducive environment for pathogens to thrive in. Even though boys are taught how to clean the area beneath the foreskin, they might not remember to clean their penises each time they urinate. But with a circumcised penis, cleaning becomes easy since the foreskin that harbors pathogens has been removed. This will be the main benefits of circumcision as hygiene is the prevention of diseases.

2. Reduces the risk of urinary tract infections

It is relatively uncommon for men to get urinary tract infections. However, the few reported cases of UTIs are common in uncircumcised men. And since a severe infection can cause kidney problems in the future for uncircumcised men, going for circumcision is the only surefire way of ensuring you do not put your life at risk.

3. Reduced risk of sexually transmitted infections

Any person circumcised is at the risk of getting sexually transmitted infections when they do not practice safe sex. However, most studies have reported that uncircumcised men are susceptible to STIs compared to their circumcised counterparts. The foreskin provides a favorable environment for pathogens including viruses, fungi and bacteria. This makes it difficult to notice the symptoms of STDs because of the foreskin covering.

4. Prevents future penile problems

Getting infections under the foreskin is easier when circumcision is out of the picture. This happens when detecting an infection, making it impossible or difficult to retract (phimosis). It can lead to chronic inflammation of the foreskin or head of the penis.

5. Reduces the risk of penile and cervical cancer

While good genital hygiene may reduce the risk of getting penile cancer, it might not mean that the individual is safe. Penile cancer is a rare condition that is less common in men who have undergone circumcision. Also, their women with sexual relationships with circumcised men are at a lower risk of getting cervical cancer.

6. Improved sexual satisfaction

When men hear of circumcision, most of them assume that their sexual performances will be reduced. Ironically, the opposite is true. Circumcision does not interfere with your ability to erect or achieve orgasm. It increases your orgasm functioning, overall sexual satisfaction, and libido.

7. Reduced pain during sex

Studies show that circumcised men experience less pain during sex than circumcised men. The sensitive nature of the foreskin puts them at a higher risk of feeling pain in case they have any abrasions. The friction during sex may worsen the pain, making it difficult to enjoy sex.

8. Improved overall look and detection of potential penile diseases

Did you know that most females prefer the appearance of a circumcised penis than an uncircumcised one? It sounds ridiculous, but it is true. It also goes beyond physical appearance. Women tend to feel at ease with circumcised men since they understand the health risks of not doing it. It is also easy for you to detect any rashes or unusual symptoms of infections before they worsen. That gives them the peace of mind knowing they are not about to contract any infections from uncircumcised penises.

As is expected of any surgical procedure, circumcision also comes with its risks. Sometimes, the foreskin might be cut too short or too long or take too long to heal. Getting a board-certified and experienced circumcision expert is the only surefire way of ensuring you get the desired results.
