Hello everyone,I'm back again on my research on effect of F.G.M.At first I'm very disappointed to know how our girls are put in risk.Anyway the effect of F.GM include:
- Severe pain
- Tetanus or infection
- Urine retention
- Ulceration of genital region and injury to adjacent tissue,wound infection,fever and septicemia.
Sadly, it is very dangerous to circumcise our girls because we are risking their life and they will be the mothers of tomorrow.I wish i had powers i would make sure that F.G.M is no more.
Long-term consequences complication during childbirth:
- The formation of the cysts and abscesses keloid scar formation
- Damage to the urethra resulting in urinary incontinence
- Dyspareunia[painful sexual intercourse].
Some communities like the maasai believe that F.G.M is the starting point of marriage.They say that F.G.M prevent pain when having sexual intercourse. Also they say F.G.M prevent pain during birth. I will be back again.
Thank you for reading!
