Mister Pleco: Electric shocks to abdominal muscles are not the same as uterine contractions and having your pelvis expand to accommodate giving birth./I say, let 'em scream. Don't want kids, won't have kids. Too bad for you that you do.//I have had a traction pin extracted from my femur with no anesthesia when I was eight. I'll put that against childbirth.
Marine1: We get it: you're special because you have a vagina, and men are lesser because they don't have one.
5monkeys: Childbirth is not that bad. I've had five kids, 3 with epidurals and two without. My gallbladder was taken out two years ago due to a pea sized stone that got stuck. That was bad.
ChipNASA: I had kidney stones twice. I have a woman who is a friend who also had kidney stones. She told me she'd rather give birth again.I couldn't even bend to stand up I was in so much pain. 3 shots of morphine and then a shot of dye and i passed it. It was no bigger than 1/2 a grain of rice, if that. Seriously, the piece of stone.salt/calcium that came out of the end of my dick was no bigger that this * (on your keyboard) and I felt a burning and back pain like I'd tore all the muscles in my lower back.The second time I had *really* bad cramps like gas. I toughed it out. i was concerned and was on the phone with urologist 20 seconds after I tried to pee for the 4th time and did, and BLOOD CAME OUT OF MY DICK!!! Thankfully a guy in my unit had the same thing happen to him so i knew what it was.Me: "Um, Hello, yes, I peed Blood"Dr office: "Oh we can see you on Tuesday"Me: "You.Don't. Understand" BLOOD CAME OUT OF MY DICK!!"Dr Office." It's ok we'll see you on Tuesday (This was Friday)Me: HELLLOOOOOO, DICK!!! PEE. BLOODDr Office: Yes, I understand, You're not dying. Come see us Tuesday and we'll check it out.Me: WTFF- OK then./sometimes the stones can be sharp and can nick a capillary and that happens.
punishmentforshoplifting: Didn't watch the video, but if anyone is particularly interested in what contractions feel like, I always tell them the closest thing I can equate it to is someone giving your whole abdomen an indian rug burn.
Mach10: This should be mandatory for all men./Bring it on!/Bring it on!/Bring on the PAIN!
Helena Handbasket: Speaking as a woman who has given birth twice, without anesthesia, the contractions aren't the worst part. The worst part is when your pelvis separates. That was the only point where it was difficult to refrain from screaming.
RodneyToady: I once had the local anesthetic wear off during a minor operation.It was my vasectomy. Hint: It didn't tickle.
God Is My Co-Pirate: Breastfeeding was actually far worse than labour.
chemrebel: 5monkeys: Childbirth is not that bad. I've had five kids, 3 with epidurals and two without. My gallbladder was taken out two years ago due to a pea sized stone that got stuck. That was bad.I was the opposite on pain levels. Childbirth was worse than my GB attack. Hell, my leg tattoo was worse pain-wise than the GB attack./gallbladder was taken out three days after the attack//thought the gb attack was a strange asthma attack
5monkeys: The pain was so bad I threw up 10 times as I drove myself to the er. It didn't stop till they pulled it out. The other attacks I had were bad, but this was different. It was a 10 pain wise for days. My body just kept shutting down. I would throw up and pass out. Never felt anything like it and hope I never do again. I am glad the stupid thing us gone now.
