Default Vasectomy Info Please:

Hey...

So, time has come... Wife had a c-section and baby was born.. Now we're already trying to think of other forms of birth control...

I'm sorry... Call me a coward, or whatever.. But... I can't stand the idea of a stranger with a sharp object doing something to my nuts..

Any experience with this? Does it alter the feeling of an orgasm? Does it cut out sex appeal?

I know.. I should be fine with it because the wife went through worse.. But.. For a guy (all you guys can understand) our balls are very precious...

So... Any experience with a vasectomy? The before and after?

No.

I believe they use a laser these days. Know plenty of men with them.

There is a 3% correlational increase in neurological disease amongst men with vasectomies, but of course, correlation doesn't always equal causation.

I often wondered about those..

Anyway, commenting on your laser one... I heard someone say the most unsettling experience in the whole procedure was watching smoke rise up from the nether regions

"Great Balls of Fire" takes on a whole new meaning... Thanks buddy... That story didn't help... *shudder*

Just close your eyes.




There once was a man with a hernia, who said to
his doctor, " Gauldernia!
When carving my middle,
please do not fiddle,
with matters that do not concernia!"

unfortunately, closing your eyes deals with the site of the smoke, but I imagine you can still smell it!

I suspected this thread would take a humorous turn

I got a Vasectomy about 4.5 years ago. Simple, outpatient surgery that was done in an hour. They also injected me with valium so I was flying high when we were done.

It seemed like the better option since the female version is a LOT more invasive, costly, and risky as well.

In short: not a bad procedure since my wife doesn't believe in birth control and I don't believe in wrapping my manhood in latex. I am married and want to enjoy it, after all! Wrapping it is for bachelors.

Hmmm... Due to family history Valium isn't an option for me I don't think.

However.. Yes, seems more and more like it...

How long was it after you got the procedure done that you were able to "have your fun" again chris?

Everywhere I've looked says a few days, but I have this aweful image in my head of something exploding :/

I know alot of guy friends who have had a vasectomy without any complications however, I'm not too sure if any of them would admit otherwise..

If you decide to have it done, the follow up exam is very important. Or (I'm not trying to frighten you) if you develop a fever, swelling that gets worse, a lump, or difficulty peeing.. go immediately. And you are still shooting little mighty men for about 8 weeks after, so you'll need to use some type of birthcontrol method.

These are pretty good sites to read. Good upbeat info:

In the event pain becomes an issue:

Yikes... I know they aren't meant to scare.. But geez.... How often do "issues" crop up? :/

And yeah, obviously going to be tender for a bit afterward, and I guess if they do it where you need to go back and get stitches removed... Oh boy... hmmm...
