We had a recent thread where a wife cut off her husband until he cut his off (his vas deferens that is).

Now, I don't want to revisit that argument, because everyone felt that FORCING a spouse to undergo surgery is wrong.

However one thing that stuck out at me was how the female posters, who were INCREDIBLY informed about how horrible it was to use an IUD, birth control pills, or a tubal ligation, none of them seemed to understand that there might be side effects from a vasectomy.

I had a vasectomy. It was a scalpel procedure and the doctor did it with just one incision, according to him.

However, for a couple YEARS afterward, orgasms were painful for me. It ranged from an ache to sharp pains.

It eventually faded away. My testosterone level is fine after the surgery.

So...has anyone else had side efffects from the procedure or heard about effects on friends or families (hearing it from a guy who talked to a guy doesn't count)

15+ years ago for me with no side effects, but yes, as in all medical proceedures there are risks. But IMO much less risky than mywife having her tubes tied and that was what made the decision easy for me. Same end results with a lower risk factor.

Everything has side affects. In our case hormones make me crazy so it just made more sense for him to take care of it than me. Even getting my tubes tied scared us because we feared it messing with my already unstable hormones. I'm broken enough on my own I don't need any help. LOL

So he got it done 7 years ago and he had no problems whatsoever. He says it was the best thing he ever did.

My husband also agrees that his was one of the best things he's ever done. No complications and it's been a few months since.

He initially was against the idea, but when birth control failed us not once but TWICE, he changed his mind. He hates condoms and BC also made me nutty as hell.

I had the baby, he gets the snip. Good deal. :)

I'm very happy to hear those symptoms went away. I'm sorry to hear you had troubles.

Going under the knife always carries a risk no matter what the procedure is. The surgeon could accidentally cut the wrong nerve or screw up in other ways that lead to permanent damage. Trust me I know. I've had a surgeon cut a nerve when I had my gallbladder out and was in constant pain for 1.5 years. I had a neck fusion that never worked and now I'm disabled. I'm currently going through a kidney infection, which the hospital last Jan sent me home too soon after the first one. It led to permanent damage.

I don't have that much faith in the doctors and surgeons. My advice is to find the best you can and do your research!

My husband had this procedure done last year. He went to a specialist to have it done, which proved to work out well. Hopefully there will be no side effects in the future.

Over 25 years since mine was done. There was only mild discomfort post-op and I had no complications. Not wanting my wife to be on the pill because of hormonal side effects, we always used barrier methods (condom, diaphragm). My V has been great for our love life.

My H had his done about 6 weeks ago and he has had no problems at all. I have an IUD and do not plan on getting rid of mine despite the fact that H had a V. I like not having a period and have minor PMS symptons.

5+ years, no problems. The only thing that changed, and I may have imagined it, was a feeling of something like a little extra "kick" (a good kick) during an org. It either went away after 6 months, or I got used to it.

But, yeah, I'd do it again.

My ex got one after our second kid was born. On the couch for a couple days and that was as bad as it was for him.

I've thought about having this done what age were some of you when you choose to have it done

I was in my mid-thirties, but since we had all three children by the time I was 27, we knew we did not want any more.

9 years and no real problems.

I did have some sharp pains early on but only when extremely aroused and involved in very physical but that was only for the first year or so...faded over time. I had my testosterone levels checked this year and it was actually quite high for my age.

When I first got mine done, I couldn't finish the deal..it hurt too much..Plus the sight of blood coming out shocked me the first time.. After about a week it got better..still really sore though..

Girl on top hurt alittle, and I couldn't wear boxers for a few weeks..i needed the support of tighty whities..

On a happier note.. Sex now is...SOOOOO much better...All the fun and none of the mind numbing worrying until she has her period..Now I know for a fact, this gun is just for fun.
