It varies: Some men make the change immediately others find that they may have enhanced glans sensation which may be uncomfortable and others might feel a bit numb. Studies have suggested that with time there is very little difference in sexual function following an adult circumcision. But there are always exceptions to the rule.

A week: Circumcision if done correctly leaves no scars. The scab usually takes about a week to form and fall off.
