To Circumcise Or Not?

Uncircumcised Boys Have More Urinary Tract Infections  

Uncircumcised baby boys have a greater chance of developing a urinary tract infection (UTI) regardless if their foreskin is ‘tight’ or not, says a recent study published by the Canadian Medical Association Journal. A tight foreskin is when it is difficult to see the uncircumcised boy’s urethral opening.  However, uncircumcised baby boys’ overall risk of developing the infection is still low — like one out a hundred, says the American Pediatric Association. Circumcised baby boys have a one in 1000 chance of developing a UTI in their first year.
