  • Can phimosis hinder pregnancy?

      I am 28 years old. Since last 4 months we are trying for a baby. Our gynecologist suggested me to get semen analysis done. The reports indicated presence of 10-12 pus cells in the semen. When I recently met a urologist for a physical examination, he diagnosed this as phimosis i.e. the foreskin does not retracts at all. He has suggested me to undergo circumcision.

      However, I wish to understand how important is it to get circumcised and whether men with phimosis are not able to make their wives pregnant?

      FYI.. The gynecologist had prescribed a 2 weeks' course of anti-biotics (Ciplox-500) and has advised to go for a semen culture test. But we are to meet her again with what the urologist has told me.

      Also, as was mentioned in one of the posts in this forum "I thought that an intact penis' foreskin wasnt supposed to retract ever. I thought that all porn actors were circumsized. "
