Support: The main help you may offer to your boyfriend is that of support. He may need help changing dressing but normally he might be able to do it himself. I don't see what else he may need help with.

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.

Dr. Robert Killian
General Practice 28 years experience
Adult Circumcision: I am assuming you are speaking about male circumcision. This is not common but there are some rare conditions such as scarred foreskin and other reasons for this procedure to be offered to adult men. But, there is a large movement growing in places where HIV infections are high because those men who are circumcised do not contract HIV as easily as those men who are not circumcised.

Circumcision: Yes, unlike with a newborn, absorbable sutures are placed circumferentially around this incision site to hold the edges together.
