Newborn Male Circumcision

Although circumcision of newborn males is controversial, some medical providers recommend it
to prevent UTI. The study was limited to young men who visited an STD clinic. Only 20% of the
study participants were homosexual or bisexual, and all had urinary tract symptoms. This
sample is therefore not representative for the male population. It does not provide clear evidence
for its effectiveness in preventing UTIs.

Nonetheless, there are ethical reasons for not performing a circumcision on a newborn. It is
difficult to decide if the surgical procedure is unnecessary, given that there are many risks
associated with it. It is often argued that circumcision violates the rights of an infant and infringes
on his bodily integrity. However, there is a clear medical benefit to circumcision, and some
ethicists argue that circumcision reduces the risk of some health problems.

A study conducted in Canada found that social norms and perceptions about research and the
benefits and risks of newborn circumcision were likely to affect parents’ decision to have their
sons circumcised. In the study, 143 parents reported that they wanted their child circumcised,
citing reasons such as personal preference, religious beliefs, and the desire to prevent future
infections or cancer. However, 92 percent of parents did not support the procedure, citing
concerns about pain and bleeding and the baby’s input.
A topical anti-bacterial cream or petroleum jelly may also be applied to the affected area after a
newborn male circumcision. A doctor should be consulted if a newborn has fever. A newborn can
be very sensitive and feel pain. It is important to seek medical attention if the symptoms
continue. An infection sign is a newborn crying while they pee, or if there are no wet diapers.

This is a serious problem and should be addressed immediately.
While the procedure is not invasive and is beneficial for infants, some health experts argue that
circumcision can still lead to health complications. While some doctors advocate it as a
protective measure against diseases that are not invasive, others say that it is an aesthetic
choice. Furthermore, circumcision is done for social reasons or cultural practices, and some
parents also opt for it for aesthetic or social reasons. In either case, the parent has the right to
determine what is best for their child. If the child is otherwise healthy, the ethical situation is
completely different.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), around 58 percent of new
born males in the U.S. were circumcised in the hospital before discharge. However, the rate has
continued to decline. Research has shown that newborn male circumcision rates are on the
decline. The rate of male newborn circumcision in the United States has dropped from 65% in
1979 to 58% in 2010, and it is not widely practiced in the country today.

After the procedure, the provider will remove any prepuce from your glans penis. He will use a
surgical knife to remove the pre-formed membrane that links the penis to the prepuce. The
surgeon must remove the adhesions that connect the two organs. This procedure is invasive and
can cause pain to the baby. After the procedure, there is a possibility of some skin scabs.
Canada’s recent decline in male circumcision rates among newborns has been attributed to the
changing nature of the country. American Academy of Pediatrics, Canadian Paediatric Society
and Canadian Paediatric Society both confirmed that circumcision is not recommended for


newborn males. Recent evidence suggests that circumcision may help to prevent certain types
of disease and reduce the risk of HIV. However, the practice is declining across the country. The
Canadian Paediatric Society’s position statement on newborn male circumcision in 1996 states
that the benefits and risks are “equally balanced.”
A recent study has determined that there are several health risks associated with newborn male
circumcision. Many parents are unsatisfied with their baby’s penis after the procedure, so they
choose to have it redone. Reoperation rates have varied from 0% to 4.5%, but most have been
within the range of 1%. Skin adhesions, for example, are known to cause bleeding, but there are
no conclusive studies.

SIDS may be affected by how a newborn experiences pain. SIDS, also known as crib death or
crib death, is the sudden death of a seemingly healthy baby while asleep. SIDS is a leading
cause for infant death in many countries. It is much more common among males. SIDS may be
increased by pain during male circumcisions. According to the allostatic load hypothesis, SIDS is
caused by the cumulative impact of stressful events during the child’s development, including
the pregnancy and birth.
