    For those of you guys who have had one:

    1. What is the surgery like?
    2. How long did it take you to recover?
    3. What was sex like afterward?
    4. Did you notice any change in your sex drive?
    5. Did you notice any physical changes to your genetalia?
    6. Did you notice any other differences?

    I want to know from personal experience, not what some website has to say.
    I want to hear what some of the guys have gone through first hand.

    THANKS

    Office visit. I went into the exam room, pulled down my pants and waited.

    He gave me a local (Lidocane) - felt like someone was shoving a softball under my skin and into my groin - by far the worst part of the whole procedure.

    I held some of the equipment for him so that the nurse didn't have to be in the room.

    One incision with a scalpel and then some forceps digging around in there to get to the vas. He grabbed the vas with one of the forceps and cut it and cauterized the end, then cut about 1/2 inch out of it and cauterized again. He took some of the "flesh" that was inside the opening and sutured it over the ends of the vas (separately). And then did the other side. A few stitches on the outside and that was that.

    I was pretty gimpy for 2 or 3 days. I felt fine but walking around sort of jostles things in that area and well, that isn't too comfortable. I only took Advil.

    No different. They say to wait 5 days before ejaculating at all - I made it 3 :mamoru: I was still a a little bruised and swolen the first time but it wasn't too bad.

    None. I have, however, noiticed that my hair is growing thicker/faster. I don't know if it is in my head but I swear that for a few weeks after the surgery I felt like I needed to shave like every 4 hours. I haven't noticed it as much lately.

    Be prepared for bruising - and by bruising I mean expect your cock and balls to swell up and turn black :sad2: The swelling lasted for 3 or 4 days and then was gone - the bruising lasted for a few weeks.

    On my right side it felt like I had some scar tissue built up around one of the ends of the vas. It was like a marble sized lump that I could feel when I put pressure on it. It wasn't anything that I was too worried about - I was going to ask about it at my follow up appointment but it seems to be subsiding.

    None - I don't notice any difference in the amount, color, consistency of my cum at all. I only got it done 6 weeks ago. I have to go give a "sample" in a few weeks.

    I'll let you know how my follow up goes if you want. Let me know if you have any specific questions.

    Wow. Thanks.

    Actually I do have a few other questions.

    Did you have to make a deposit or can you choose to make a deposit (just in case)?

    Also, how much did it cost or did your insurance pay for any or all of it?

    When the doctor did it, did you watch it happening? (I assume you did)

    Last of all, how did you decide to have this done?

    I assume that you can (or should). I would discuss this with your urologist beforehand. I have no desire to father children so I did not do it.

    It cost me about $280 (included copay and the 20% that my insurance would not cover- insurance picked up the rest, another $750 or so. Oh, and my prescription (Darvocet ?) was $4 or so.

    I was laying on my back so I couldn't see much. I could hear the cauterizing machine buzz and see/smell the smoke wafting up. :hs:

    My wife and I have known for a long time that we did not want to have children. She had been on the pill for as long as I have known her. We had discussed me getting snipped before but never had any real solid reason to do it.

    About a year ago my wife starting having really weird periods - like constantly for months on end. She had tests done, untrasounds, you name it and they copuldn't do anything. It was pretty debilitating to her so she went to a specialist who suggested she get a procedure done that would remove the lining of her uterus. Technically she can get pregnant but without the lining there is nothing for the egg to implant in so the risk of eptopic pregnancy is pretty high. This was sort of the reason we needed so I decided to get a vasectomy so that she can get off the pill and we don't have to worry about pregnancy.

    For the record I am 33, she is 30. No kids for either of us.

    1) numbing shots hurt, the rest is a breeze. My dr's office gives you a relaxing pill to take ~1hr before hand. I was loopy as can be. good stuff.
    2) 2-3 days later I was fine.
    3) no differnce noticed.
    4) see #3
    5) nope
    6) I don't feel like I felt different, but I know that with my joking about me no longer being a man it did effect me to some degree. It is kind of weird knowing that you're not complete. But it's also very relieving knowing no more kids once you've decided you are done.

    My best advice is ask if your Dr will prescribe some kind of relaxer. I would have been super super nervous, man I felt high as a kite and just kept rambling on about different stories. Definitely take it easy for a couple days after, if nothing else to milk it from your woman!! You had your boys violated, you need to sulk on the couch while she brings you beer and stuff.

    No deposit made!! $20 office visit co-pay. I did not watch, at one point I had to look away from my wifes face who was watching!!

    why- we had 2 kids, we're 24 and we decided we are done having kids. We have 2 daughters. I'm happy that if we ever decide we want a 3rd, I'm adopting damnit because I want a son. There is no way I could handle 3 daughters. But we are very happy with 2 kids.

    Haven't had it done...yet. But I worked with a guy who didn't wait long enough before ejaculating in his wife and ended up with another kid.

    :ugh:

    I didn't know either.
    There is no way in hell I would let my wife watch that.
    I will go do it on a lunch break or something so that she won't even get the chance.

    :mamoru: :o I would want to watch.
    Actually, I don't really have anything to answer your questions, but I would like to say that I think it's wonderful you are willing to do this for your wife. I have discussed it with my husband and he is very adament against getting one (not now, but in the future). So I just wanted to say thank you.:) (silly as that may sound)

    I am doing it for my wife? :eek3:

    I am actually doing it for us. It just seems easier.
    And if we wanted more kids one day and changed our minds, I plan on making a deposit just incase. I was just curious because it is a little way down the road for us too. I only have one kid on the way and we want two. After that, I get snipped. That is just the way I would rather have it. I would rather it be me instead of her.

    Assuming that you are doing it because you are done having children (after you are done having children of course) and one of you is going to be sterilized so that she does not have to deal with birth control anymore, I would say that you are partially doing this for her ;) (Yes of course you're doing it for the two of you, but you understand what I mean?)
    Considering a vasectomy is a lot 'easier' than a tubal, I think it's awesome that you're willing to consider it.:)

    Your man may very well change his mind when the time comes. For me I was always no way in hell I'm getting neutered, but when it came to we had 2 kids, were done having kids you look at things different.

    Well, I have been considering it since I was 16 actually.
    I always knew that I would be the one to get fixed because that is the way I always wanted it. I don't know why that is, but that is just the way I ahve been.
