Sore tip of penis after ejaculation. Had 4 UTI in the last year. Urologist thinks circumcision may help. Good idea? Worried about loss of sensitivity.

In brief: Unusual for 4 UTIs

In an adult related to foreskin, unless u have phimosis (foreskin is tight).
Circumcision is certainly better than recurrent utis. Sexual sensation is different after circumcision ; most men are happy about 2 - 3 months after procedure.

In brief: Not to worry

It's often said that circumcision reduces sensitivity, but in recent trials of adult circumcision to prevent HIV transmission in africa, the men did not report a change in sensitivity or sexual pleasure after the procedure.
If you need it, you should do it.
