My DH is not circumcised...should I keep my cevix

It may seem like a strange question but i have been reading reports linking uncircumsized males with an increase in cervical cancer for women. I had previousely wanted to keep my cervix but am now not so sure.. My DDDDH, when I told him what I was reading told me that if I really wanted to keep my cervix then he would actually go with me to castle and be circumsized if I wanted him too. Anyone else in this pedictiment or have any other information.

Hi, I have read about this somewhere a while ago and I remember that it is only a problem with men with many sex partners because the bacteria (forgotten the name, but its the one which causes the STD's') stays on the uncircumsized foreskin and that could lead to cervical cancer to their partner's'.

I think the virus name your referring to is HPV? My Dr said this is fairly new phenomenon - last 5 yrs - that they've been able to link this virus to an increase in cervical cancer. The cancer actually occurs in a different part of the cervix. I'd mention it to your Dr, but I don't think the foreskin has anything to do with it. Your decision should be based on how you personally feel after you've weighed the risks associated with keeping your cervix.

I for one, really wanted to keep mine. Mr Dr tried to convince me it wasn't worth the risk of cervical cancer, plus there's a chance you could still have a small period, unpleasant discharge, etc. I wasn't convinced until the colposcopy showed a polyp and the pap came back bad. After that, I figured that was a sign, plus I don't want to face this kind of surgery twice.

Hope that helps, sounds like you've got a great dh. Plus it'd be terrible if you both wound up at the castle at the same time. Who'd pamper you?! ; )

You've had your cervix all this time without worrying, why start now? The risk of STD, I agree is minimal in your case because you're in a monogamous relationship. I'm not sure what the benefits of keeping the cervix are, but tell doc your concerns and keep gathering info.

And what a loving hubby you have who would offer to do that for you! Lucky lady!

Wow, he would do that for you? Indeed, you are lucky. Have you asked your doctor about this yet? It is an interesting question, please let us know what the verdict is!

Yeah Right

I think he probably said that because he knew I wouldn't take him up on that, but it was sweet of him to say. I ought to tell him I have made him an appt. for the Dr., I wonder if he would actually go through with it.

Thanks for all the info
