I tried to talk my husband into one for 4yrs. Then my beautiful baby girl came alongs. We now have kids aged 13, 10 and 1 1/2. I got my tubes tied right after the baby was born. I had a bad last pregnancy and did not want anymore.Hi
Has any couple dealt with the vasectomy issue?
Trying to get my hubby to agree to having one:scratchhead:
And much less invasive. Had mine done 15+ years ago and never regretted it. Had it done at the doctor's office Friday afternoon. Watched a lot of football with an ice pack Saturday and mowed the lawn on Sunday. Pretty smooth really.Sure it is less painful for the man, but someone has to get it done.
Yea best to follow advice.Most guys don't have problems, but some do and if it's him having them he won't care about the stats. Look up vasectomy and infection or congestive epididymitis (I had both).
My standard advice:
1) Be sure you are done having kids. And, the partner who is done gets sterilized. If you divorced him or died, would he want more kids with someone else? Would either of you want more kids if one of your own died?
2) Make sure he does this willingly. If you pushed him into this, and he had complications, would he resent you?
3) If you have it done, have it done by an experienced urologist - not a family doctor and not a general surgeon. I let my doc talk me into having the in-house surgeon do it. He did the surgery fine but was not qualified to recognize the infection or do anything about it. I was in pain longer than necessary and it took 6 weeks of antibiotics to clear up.
