If you HIV positive can you still do circumcision?

« Back to Previous Page

If yes, do you check the CD 4 count or it does not matter

Thank you for your question.

You can absolutely still have a circumcision done as it not only reduces the risk of HIV, but also the risk of STIs such as herpes and syphilis and certain cancers.

With any operation the recovery will be better, the higher the CD4 count, but as this is a quick procedure under local anesthetic it should not make too much of a difference.

Hope this helps

Kind Regards
