Since we are all adults here

Since I am a long time member and came over with the great exodus back in the day. Admittedly more of a lurker than a contributor. Certainly not due to my lack of an outgoing personality, but 100% due to my busy schedule. And since many of you share some pretty wild stuff on here and are not subject to flaming, on the contrary it tends to skew toward normal conversation and rational discussion. I wanted to vent somewhere about what I just had done to myself.

Vasectomy.

Not what I was expecting at all.

Not here to bitch at all. Many of you seem to be about the same age and may even be considering it. If so. I will share my experience. If not. Then send me a sack of frozen peas and we will be good.

I'm actually seriously considering this myself in the next few months. I have twins coming with my fiance and two young sons already, so that's it for me as far as kids are concerned. Anything you can share I'd love to hear.

I'll probably have one done eventually. My girlfriend's been on an IUD for about two years, so when that starts to run out we'll decide what to do next.

Ugh, I'm considering one of those soon. The wife and I have 4 kids between us and we're done. I freely admit I'm a huge pussy and the thought of sharp bits down there is nearly enough for me to pass out.

I read an article recently which included a very long and detailed description of the procedure and the aftermath. It was...unnerving. Still, my girlfriend was in incredible pain for most of a week after getting her IUD, so it's my turn next.

The biggest piece of advice from the article: Don't be afraid to ask for more local anesthesia.

The only long term negative I've read of it is a small number of men will feel significant pain for months afterward. If you're done having children and you're sure of it a vasectomy seems like the best way to go from what I've been able to find out.

Look Don.... I don't know you. I don't know your wife. And because of those 2 statements, I am not going state something that could be taken as very insulting... however, I beg of you... don't utter those two sentences together again. =)

My wife had a tubal ligation, so I've been saved from the knife. If that's the route you want to go, I say do it. I obviously haven't had it done myself, but I've heard the procedure is barely what you would consider invasive these days.

No condoms + no surprises = win

Really? My wife has had an IUD twice and there wasn't any pain involved. That's too bad.

So, what's the scoop on vasectomies?

Yeah betweeen the two definitely do a vasectomy. Tying the tubes is an invasive abdominal surgery and can have complications, while getting snipped is pretty much in and out.
