drewogatory:They just poke a probe in and fishhook out the vas defrens and snip and cauterize. Just a tiny hole that closes by itself.

Yup.  Got mine like this 14 months ago.  Very little trouble after the procedure.  Funny thing was that the right side didn't hurt at all but the left side did a little.  The doctor said that it's because your brain is expecting it after the first cut.  Interesting...

Another interesting factoid was that the doctor told me that folks without kids before the procedure (obviously) are far less likely to come back later looking to get it reversed.  He should know.  He told me that he had probably done over 10,000 in his career up to that point.

Anyway, it was worth it.  There have been only a couple times since that I've felt any discomfort, and it was minimal at that.  Totally worth not getting the Mrs. preggers.

Jon iz teh kewl: why the hell would you WANT a vasectomy?

it reduces your desire
you might as well be injecting salt petre


On the contrary.  It increased mine, because there's no worries about getting her pregnant.

El Supe: I got my vasectomy in the mid 90s a few years after both my kids were born.  I don't normally mind getting shots, but for this the surgeon used the longest, scariest looking  medical needle I have ever seen to deaden the balls, of course it had to be used twice, and it hurt big time.
I must say the surgeon was very professional, and especially his hot young female technician who assisted in the process.  She was jabbering away with the doctor while handling my junk, even though she had to be seething with desire at my "equipment"


Yep, same here, but ten years later in the mid-naughties.

I had my prevas-party with our friends at an omelette place called "Great Eggspectations".

Random notes, since this is the kind of thing people don't talk about too much...

* you get to shave your pubes like a porn star. The cute nurse will do this for you. But no guarantees she'll be gentle.

* my HMO covered the procedure at the time. They don't want to pay for delivering any more babies than I want to pay for raising them.

* Pain wasn't bad, but the doctor did comment that he was a bit freaked that I was so stoic. To me, it was just a commitment to raise my existing kids (1 primary, 1 aux backup) right.

* Recovery meant no rough sex for a few weeks. The knots remain sore for about a year, but only if you manage to squeeze them. Hoever, the guys feel fine if that's what you're worried about.

* All the other glands stay connected, so you still get plenty of cheese. It's just not as interesting to look at under a microscope anymore. (you do have to provide a sample post-op)

* If there's any reduction in sex drive, it wasn't noticeable, esp. compared to the natural reduction from growing out of your horny-teen years, and the reduction from having kids around the house all the time. It's still too high compared to the Mrs., but supposedly she catches up in her 30s - 40s.

* Didn't see any reduction in, uh, aggressive behaviors. Maybe I became more risk-averse, but your car insurance goes down at 25 anyway, so that's already been established that you're going to act less dumb. Still have the cajones to try new things, like mountain climbing, downhill skiing, sparring with larger / faster guys, scuba diving, etc.

* Stress is wayyy down, it was one big thing less to worry about.

ramblinwreck: Swoop1809: Sign me up. Will they perform one on a 24 year old? It's hard to find one that will. But free pizza seems like they are shooting for my demographic

Why the fark wouldn't they? Sounds like bullshiat. They'll give women birth control starting as soon as they have a farking period but won't give a 26 year old male a vasectomy? Equal reproductive rights in the US my ass. I can't wait for RISUG to come to this country...especially if doctors don't restrict it's use (just like they don't really restrict the many types if birth control options women have).


Young women have difficulty finding docs who will sterilize them, too.

They won't do surgery to tie a woman's tubes till she has had children. This is the same thing.  A vasectomy is too drastic to do at such a young age. It may not be 100% reversible if you decide later to have children. Men have equal birth control rights. You have the right to use a condom. You have the right to make sure your partner uses the pill or one of the many other forms of birth control. You even have the right to abstain from sex because you don't want to do the one thing you KNOW causes pregnancy. You aren't a dog that that has to go around humping everything. You can exercise self control. I know! Shocking!


Bullshiat. Women have choices: shots, IUD, pills, tubal ligation, and physical barriers other than condoms. Most of which will be prescribed without much of a discussion with a doctor. All, except some physical barriers, she could lie about without any legal recourse. Don't tell me about equality in reproductive rights when it doesn't exist.

Same reason they wont tie the tubes of women that age. They prefer you to be older as well as already having at least one child to prevent the inevitable crowd who regret the decision later on. If you were to poll all 20-somethings, most would say they don't want kids, however that typically changes in their 30s. Even though these surgeries can be reversed with greater success these days, it's still considered a permanent procedure.


That's why I got mine so young. So I COULDN'T change my mind later if I was blinded by hormones or whatever. A pre emptive strike against future stupid decisions.

Funny because it is really difficult for a woman under 35 to get a sterilization procedure at all and here they are giving away free pizzas to dudes who get the snip.  Sigh.
