If I tell a woman I have gold in my cock, will she try to suck it out?

Why don't I just teabag a radiator while I'm at it?

Wow, I didn't know so many men had vaginas. Procedure sounds very precise in comparison to taking scalpels to the balls.

Not if she's financially independent and has a semen fetish.

As someone who will be getting fixed in the next 1-3 years, I'm not sure that this sounds very appealing compared to the traditional snipping.

Have a friend who had his vasectomy reversed and went on to have 2 more kids.   Said the doctor opened his sack like filleting a trout, and every nurse he passed asked to see his scar.

Yep - Mrs. Henry would LOVE to see me do this - and I've had a vasectomy.

FTA:
After seven days, mice that had experienced testes temperatures of 37 or 40 °C were 10% as fertile as untreated mice. Their fertility recovered to 50% at 60 days

So, it's a 10% fertility and increases to about 25% in 30 days.
You're gonna expect a guy to go through this every 30 days for 75% protection??

Guys, if you don't want kids get it done. With the new laparoscopic method there is no scalpel incision, no stitches, and virtually no pain (in my case anyway). It will not affect your sex drive, ability to perform, or amount of semen produced.

The worst part is getting the injection to numb the area. That is about 10 seconds of pinching pain then nothing. The entire procedure takes about 30 min. and can be done by the doctor in the office.

I got mine very young (23) and have never regretted it. It has been the source of some interesting moments with girlfriends who have either faked a pregnancy or actually gotten pregnant without knowing I've had it done.

If wiki is to be believed (grain of salt and all that) the success rate seems to be tied to how long the person had the vasectomy. If the reversal is done within 3 years of the vasectomy there is a 76% success rate of pregnancy, this drops down to 25% as time goes to 10 years. I'll also note the study these numbers came from was done in 1991, so it's possible new techniques/drugs may have increased the success rate since then too. Still, even if the rates are the same it would still be a bit of a far cry from irreversible.

I had that one done.  Had the little bit of pinch when the needle went in, that was it.  When I went into the procedure office, the doc asked me if I wanted to sit up and watch or lay down.  I opted to lay down.  The doc even wrote me a 'scrip for a single Valium when I went in for my consultation, but I didn't get it filled.

Procedure was at 9:30 Friday morning, I was out of the office by 10:45.  I held down the couch Saturday and Sunday morning with a sock in my pants to provide support and went back to work Monday morning.  I didn't take anything stronger than some Tylenol for the pain (though I'm the guy who can take two Aleve for the pain of a kidney stone and be okay).

It was a lot easier to get me fixed than get the wife fixed.  I just had to get the wife to sign a paper saying "Yep, I agree to him getting the snip".  The wife's OBGYN didn't even want to discuss her getting fixed until she had at least 2 kids.  I guess we are evil worthless turds for not wanting to breed like cockroaches.

Seriously? Because I'm pretty sure your wife has no legal say over your body. Maybe it was the doctor covering his ass.

/Kaiser Permanente specifically stated to us "We do not require any spousal permission for either a tubal ligation or vasectomy. It's your body, end of story."

It was definitely a CYA thing.  If I was doing it on the down-low, he could have just refused to do the procedure and I would have had to shop around for a doc that would have done it no-questions-asked.

This was in GA, where the HOAs fine you if you *don't* have a copy of the Ten Commandments posted on the lawn.
