Summary: Penile circumcision is the surgical removal of the foreskin from the penis. The foreskin is highly vulnerable to HIV infection. Circumcision of the penis provides some protection against HIV infection for heterosexual men. Circumcision does not protect most men who have sex with men, although it may provide some protection for men who engage only in insertive anal sex (topping). Penile circumcision does not protect women from HIV transmission.
In Canada, circumcision is not recommended as a method of preventing HIV.
