The Best Time to Circumcise

Circumcision is a procedure when the foreskin that covers the end of a penis is removed during surgery. Circumcision is a controversial issue that varies from country to country. Some countries believe that boys do not need circumcision, unless there is a medical need.

In the Philippines, circumcision is carried out as part of medical, religious, social and cultural reasons.  It is a time when boys are considered and welcomed as a young man. Circumcision is a counterpart when girls had their first monthly period and welcomed as a young lady.

My eldest son Rafael asked to be circumcised at the age of eleven, that was three years ago. Last December my youngest son said, "Mom, cut na ko this summer". I knew already what he meant because Rafael said the same thing. But I didn't get it immediately when Rafael came to me and said, "Mom, cut na". I was baffled and said, "baby, you just had your hair cut last week". He then said, "No Mom, I mean cut na, you know, circumcision".

So if you're asking, "when is the best time for circumcision?", the answer is if your son is ready for it.
