jmadisonbiii: A derpstress in the GA house last year actually introduced a bill to outlaw vasectomies. The bill reads: "It is patently unfair that men avoid the rewards of unwanted fatherhood by presuming that their judgment over such matters is more valid than the judgment of the General Assembly..."


WTF am I reading???

Hah, finally found someone who admitted to watching the procedure as did I! I INSISTED on mirrors so I could observe the procedure. I actually think it helped my anxiety about the process as it allowed me to be detached from the moment.

Became a father at 24, had another child at 28. Was living in sin with the mother of both children, eventually married the mother, still together after nearly 20 years! *knock on wood har har*

Had the vasectomy done around 30 years old. Doctor was point blank: "Why? Have kids? What if?"

I vividly remember replying "My wife HATED being pregnant and she asked for her tubes to be tied after her last pregnancy. I realized that it was a relatively serious operation for a female, more so than for a male. We already have a daughter and a son and I think we've contributed enough to the gene pool."

Doctor: *SNIP!"*

There is a caveat, however, where, in our late 30s, watching the kids grow up, there was a span of about a year where there was regret by the missus and myself where we longed for a third child. That regret has quickly subsided as we realized such regret was due to a selfish reason ("I wanna take care of babies!"). We knew we did the right thing.

For those of you in your 20s and early 30s without children, I strongly suggest you don't opt for sterilization without lengthy and serious consideration but this new procedure seems very intriguing!

I myself was the ultimate conceited asshole in my early 20s. Me me me. Having a kid changed my world view and made me "grow up." But that's just MY personal experience.

All I can say is that I am SO HAPPY to FINALLY have someone (aka my 13 year old son) who will eagerly play Space Hulk, 20th Anniversary edition, with me regularly after so many years of longing. Heh.

TL;DR version: Getting your nuts snipped prematurely may deny you the best gaming partner of your life.

I do not recommend people have kids so that it will help them grow up. You should have kids because you already are grown up.

Oh, I absolutely agree if this was a "perfect" scenario. I wasn't asking for a kid at the time, it just happened. My experience and personal upbringing made me realize then that this wasn't just my life on earth that I needed to be concerned about, but that I brought a NEW life into this world and was equally responsible for it as such.

Unlike the deadbeat dads out there, I manned up and took responsibility. And still am happily married to the mother.

About 15 years ago I had my ballsack opened up to correct a testicular torsion, then stitched back together. Diagnosis and treatment on the Thursday, back at work on Monday (but walking very very slowly).

Normally I wait an age to go to the doc with any medical symptoms, but in this case I went immediately - and very lucky I did.

Needless to say, the op described in the article sounds like a fine and dandy walk in the park in comparison. Where do I sign up?

jmadisonbiii: lordaction: Dr Dreidel: DarthBart: meat0918: The snip is one of the best things I ever did.

//TMI, I know.

This.

I called in sick on a Friday morning, had the snip done (via the no-scalpel method), held down the couch Saturday and part of Sunday, went back to work Monday. I think I took one Aleve because of the general tenderness. That was 8 years ago.

1. Does insurance cover it? What about for single people?
2. How bad is the "general tenderness"? When I sprained my knee, I was confined to a recliner for 3 days, only walking to the bathroom (which the doc said I shouldn't do, but I didn't have a cane handy), but it didn't hurt much when I was sitting still. Will my boys be achy - and if so, more or less so than after a, shall we say, "spirited weekend with the ladyfriend"?
3. How reversible/effective is it? I know vasectomies these days mostly are reversible, and that most of their partners don't end up pregnant (0% of men with vasectomies reported being pregnant after the procedure, too), but are we talking a The-Pill-esque 99+% effective?
4. How long would I be out of commission? Just those 2-3 days, or is there a "no farking until month 4" rule that no one talks about?

// remembering an ex's IUD's getting-to-know-you period, is there any hormonal imbalance to be expected?
// I'd guess not, since you're not farking with anything endocrine, production-wise

Feminist groups in the US have been lobbying to keep male birth control (pills/shots) off of the market in the US. I am dead serious. Evidently it oppresses woman for men to have the same reproductive options/rights as women.

A derpstress in the GA house last year actually introduced a bill to outlaw vasectomies.   The bill reads: "It is patently unfair that men avoid the rewards of unwanted fatherhood by presuming that their judgment over such matters is more valid than the judgment of the General Assembly..."

madgonad: There are a lot of pussies in the thread.

I watched my vasectomy about five years ago, well, all but the very first incision. Didn't touch the Vicodin and only took Ibuprofen for the first day. Could have gone to work the following day, but I did it on a Friday. The wife was more than happy to help clean the pipes out too.

This procedure sounds like the PERFECT graduation gift for my son!


you want son to get a blow job from your wife?

dude.. thats disgusting

I have my vasectomy planned for the Wednesday before March Madness. I figure if I have to spend a couple of days lounging around with frozen peas on my boys, I may as well watch some hoops.

I always find the visual of a bag of frozen peas cooling the pain of a vasectomy to be highly amusing.

meanwhile... I am going to jerk off in a cup tomorrow morning to make sure I still have enough boys kicking around to get the wife preggers again,.

No, the best birth control is a week in the life of my young earth creationist older brother, his wife, and their 6 girls aged 2 months to 6 years. Quivverful-type people. If groups of 2-4 teenagers spent more than 2 days at a time living in their house, there'd be a severe drop in teenage pregnancies.

dj_spanmaster: I'd rather go with the solution covered in Wired: RISUG. One time surgery, but reversible anytime, unlike this one.


God if we did a government program to do this for free (with a free reversal later, stipend or tax break for every year you don't) on all 9th grade boys, teen pregnancy would drop significantly.

I think we should mandate it. Let's get that eugenics ball rolling!
