Can I Get Circumcised At The Age Of 18?
Can I have circumcision when I was 18 years old, yesterday when I was a child when I was 6/7 I was circumcised but the connection was loose, so I haven’t been circumcised, thank you …
Hello, Jusran Nopenri. Thank you for the question submitted to HealthReplies.com.
Circumcision (circumcision) is a surgical procedure with the aim of removing the prepuce (the tip of the skin of the penis). In general, there are 2 types of indications of circumcision, namely:
Medical indications: phimosis (penile foreskin cannot be withdrawn), paraphymosis (penile foreskin cannot be returned to its original position after being pulled), as well as to maintain the hygiene of the penis head area
Non-medical indications: religious advice
There is no age limit for circumcision. As long as there are no contraindications, circumcision can be done at any age. Contraindications include hypospadias, namely the condition of the urinary hole not at the tip of the penis, but at the bottom of the penis.
Don't hesitate to consult a doctor or surgeon if you want to be circumcised. Such is our explanation. Hopefully always healthy. May be useful.
