It was claimed that Umm ʿAṭiyyah said: “A woman used to perform circumcision in Medina. The Prophet said to her: ‘Do not cut a lot since that is better for a woman and more desirable for a husband.’” (Abu Dawud #5271) Abu Dawud said the narration is weak.
This hadith is not authentic due to its weak chain of narrators.
