So I used this forum as a way to find some comfort and support when I had my circumcision in January as the Irish Health Service has little or no support for something so close to men going through such an emotional and physical change.
Looking back I wondered why I made such a big deal out of it and how I allowed my emotions to take over, I went through a regret stage but via this forum I overcame that and kept going. I sometimes forget I’ve had it done though I am still conscious of it and choose a stall over a urinal when I need to go for a whiz, maybe I got in that habit having to sit down to pee all the time(i dont sit down now fyi!) or maybe I don’t want people to see it.
Aside from that I healed well, I did have an unfortunate infection at the time which antibiotics helped with and I think I was pretty mich good to go within 5 weeks with no bandages. I left it much longer before sex, i think 10 weeks but i was tugging away from week 4/5.
Some say you lose sensitivity but I say it’s pretty much the same, my phimosis had got me used to damn all sensation so its great being ‘cut’ now. Not to mention that women do indeed prefer it a wizard sleeve. Perhaps its a novelty or something for them.
Anyway I thought I would share some thoughts here. If you are going through it and have questions or you are considering it please shout out. This is a place of support and I’m overdue to give back what I got months ago from you all
