robohobo: Paternity tests should be offered at every birth. Seriously.


Change that to 'required'.

They're cheap and non-invasive. If we're going to put some dude on the hook financially for 18 to 22 years, shouldn't we be sure he's the father?

robohobo: Too many women tricking their poor husbands into raising someone else's bastard.


The number I keep hearing is 20%.

accelerus: this is why I'm 31 years old, employed, own my own home and car, and am 100% *SINGLE*


I'm fixed, how you doin'?

WordyGrrl: If paternity testing becomes mandatory, will a guy get little postcard in the mail just like for jury duty? Can he claim he didn't get the postcard? Or will some men start collecting postcards, ala "one from each of the 50 states?"


There are not too many guys who are going to want to collect all the cards.

There will be a lot of guys who will consider it a status symbol not to have any 'You are the father' cards.

So basically no one under 30 can get their tubes tied. Awesome.

My brother tried to get his vas about 5 years ago at the age of 28 after having 2 kids with his wife, and the doctor shooed him away too. "You're young yet, you may want more kids." They still just have two kids. They're still married. Now he's 33, maybe now they'll listen. Or they'll get surprised, which I'm half-expecting.

Bad news: yeah, it happens. "Good" news: they're not out to get you.

QueenMamaBee: robohobo: Admiral_Halsey: I think it goes something like this:  Oops, birth control failed.  They quit using birth control for obvious reasons.  Girl actually gets pregnant.

That's why there needs to be a BC pill/shot for men.

I've heard of these things called "condoms"....


Then why dont use use female condoms?

Sure..you get to get laid and it feels great bc ure vagina isnt wrapped in plastic.

Main benefit to sex in a long term monogamous relationship: after std testing, no need for sensation-killing condoms.

A lifestyle choice should not be overruled by a doctor.  There is no medical reason to deny you this procedure, which would be the only valid reason.  It's none of their farking business.

My SIL tried to get fixed after their first kid, and my brother also tried to get a vasectomy. He was in the military and so had military care. They refused to sterilize either one of them. Well, he was overseas for quite a while, and she went off the pill (it messed with her.)

You guessed it--she got pregnant when he came home on leave. It was 7 years after their first child, and she was pissed. In fact, my brother said that she was not just pissed, she was right out of her mind angry. But she had the baby and he's a nice total wise-ass, smart 20-year old now.

I hope he never finds that story out.

I had an 18 year old girlfriend who wanted a hysterectomy because of severe pain during sex.* But her case of  dyspareunia was thanks to endometriosis; it was never going to get better and it was never going away.  And thanks to her "family of origin" issues (i.e. a hyper controlling mother and a father who lobotomized himself whilst welding on a gas tank) she never under circumstances wanted kids. In fact every time she got drunk, she spent her time fighting with anyone around her telling them they'd be terrible parents. Needless to say at the age of 18 no doctor would give her the procedure.  Too much danger she might change her mind later and sue them to hell.

*The pain was so severe she hated intercourse that lasted more than a few minutes. Once during sex she bit me so hard on the neck I had bruises for a while and honestly I thought she broke something and was surprised I wasn't bleeding.  She said "I just wanted it to feel the same for you as it does for me." Needless to say we never had sex again (how could you, in good conscience) and broke up soon after.


I'm a bastard in the traditional sense - no father on my birth certificate and the guy my mother insisted was him said no way.  Believe me I would have given my eye teeth for a paternity test just to rule the hapless object of my mother's affections out.  Instead she spend the following years building some kind of alternate reality in her mind about how he was the one and some day he'd some to her.  When I was 12 or so our house caught on fire due to aged electrical wiring.  According to my mother, I had set all the love letters and photos of Mr. Right on fire for reasons unknown.  My aunts actually read the the "love letters" and they were hate mail from Mr. Right denying paternity.   So I was a convenient excuse to cover up lack of evidence and continue the story.  :facepalm:   I love my mother.  Only a monster doesn't love his mother.  But I don't necessarily like her.


I eventually found my real dad 45 years later after submitting a DNA sample to a family ancestry site.  What would have happened if my mother had been forced to admit then she was banging two dudes and it was the party of the first part and not the second who had fathered me?  I like to think really great things, my real father's been nothing but kind to me.    At least I wouldn't have had a lifetime of people accusing me of presenting a fake birth certificate every time they saw mine with a blank spot for father's name.  LOL.

Unless your plan was grandfathered (unlikely) or the ACA is repealed (also unlikely) birth control, including sterilization, has to be covered. Make sure you pick an in-network doctor and contact your insurance company first to ensure you're getting any pre-authorizations and that you're doing it at a covered facility. I got Essure done, and it has been fan-farking-tastic. My tubes are confirmed blocked, scars completely formed, and I had not one side effect and never even needed so much as an Advil.

For the consult, procedure and medicine I paid a total of 95$ in copays, prescriptions and parking. Best money I ever spent.

Good luck to you, and seriously, don't give up. Doctors have a tendency to discourage people from sterilizing themselves. The last one finally accepted it when I said 'Would you be asking how sure I was if I was in here telling you I was desperate to get pregnant?'

No. Rifampin makes oral contraceptive pills (and tons of other drugs) ineffective. You can tell if you're on rifampin by the red tears/urine/etc and the fact that you're taking drugs for something like TB, leprosy, or really bad staph. The interaction of other antibiotics is purely based on anecdotal evidence that's been proven false multiple times, but they still get the pink sticker because lawyers don't care.

Most of the 'failure' of the birth control pill is down to the fact that people are really not that damn good at making sure it's taken as directed and they get sloppy. I was on the pill for a long time, and quit taking it because it was doing bad things to my blood pressure, and since I knew that I never ever wanted kids, I just went balls to the wall for getting sterilized.

OgreMagi: And when reading Dostoyevsky, you drink vodak


Delicious vodak. Although, I do like to make mine bubbly with some club soda. No flavoring though. Just bubbly club soda and vodak.

May Cause Drowsiness: The interaction of other antibiotics is purely based on anecdotal evidence that's been proven false multiple times, but they still get the pink sticker because lawyers don't care.


The lawyers care about whether they can win a wrongful life/wrongful birth suit against the pharmacist who didn't put the sticker on the package. It doesn't matter that a lot of the 'pregnant while on the pill' cases are actually misuse of the pill or women who have just farking stopped taking it so they can have their little 'oops' trap to spring.
 
2013-09-01 09:49:41 PM

willfullyobscure: I'lltry to sum up a funny story that happened a few years ago:
I got a vasectomy.
I met a girlsoon afterwards. She was nice and attractive but with a selfish streak that raised a big red flag. She was 32 at thetime and I could practically HEAR her biologicalclock ticking. Regardless,she was a good lay, easy on theeyes, and reasonably good company.
I did NOT tell her about my vasectomy and I always used a condom with her to protect against STDs. She assumed, obviously, that thecondom was only used for birth control. Silly girl.
We date for a few months. I never made any move towards commitment but shebrought it up ocassionally. For me,this was a casual but pleasant relationship. For her - as I was to find out - it was part of life-changing series of events that shewas planning very carefully.
Four monthsinto dating, I getthe "I'm pregnant" talk. She's goingon and on about how the condom must have broke and now we really need to think about getting married "for thebaby". She's positively giddy. She has a baby inher and she thinks she's gonnahave a good meal ticket (me) to go along with her new 7lb annuity.
At this point, I'm just as giddy. I get to pullthe reverse "oops" on her. I figured that she slept with some bad boy and got knocked up. Good thing I was using condoms! Better still that I have a serious mistrust of women who can't thinkbeyond their own uteri.
So I wait a coupleof days to "think about all this." I meet her again. I say I don't want kids and that she shouldhave an abortion. I know where this is goingand sure enough it goes there. She goes completely bat**** insane on me. There were theusual insults about my manhood. There were threats of legal action. It was all very ugly and I was loving every minute of it.
Well, I let her stew for a few days. She leaves me nasty messageson my phone. She sends awful emails. I'm laughing hysterically.
It was time to drop thehammer. While she was stewing I was busy. First I get a notarized copy from the urologist who ...


I laughed, I cried, I pasted it to note book for when I need a pick me up. You are a god among men.

The only problem was, I found out sex with girls is so damn much better, that I went out and proposed to a chick instead.

Our babies are gonna be pretty cute though.

In conclusion: don't let those chicks you don't trust anyway find out how comparatively terrible you are at teh butsecks.

megarian: I'm "too young" to get my tubes tied...said FIVE doctors so far.

I am not an OB/Gyn, but during my residency in the mid-90s, I recall that there was a spectacular lawsuit at Detroit Medical Center, in which a young woman had allegedly consented to have a postpartum tubal ligation, since she'd had a bunch of kids already and didn't want any more.

Although there was a signed consent form in the medical record, the plaintiff asserted that the procedure was not adequately explained to her, and that she had never been told that the surgery would result in her becoming unable to have any more children. Being Detroit, it got turned into a racial genocide issue (white doctor, non-white patient, evil white doctor had knowingly, cruelly, and racist-ly robbed her of the basic human right to reproduce, etc.).  Nazis were invoked, as was the spectre of Michigan's old eugenic sterilization program of the early 20th century. The doctor and hospital paid a settlement that was allegedly a high seven or low eight figure sum.  Although this happened at DMC, this put a significant damper on the OB/Gyns performing tubal ligations throughout the metropolitan area.

Not being a party to the suit, this account is hearsay, and it is entirely possible that this is an urban legend. However, urban legends can affect people's behavior, and twenty years later this might be why you can't find a surgeon to perform a tubal ligation on you.

so, have any of the docs brought up issues with YOUR body reacting?  just asking because my mom had a complete hysterectomy after a grapefruit-sized tumor on one of her ovaries twisted her tube and sent her to the hospital with abdominal pain...

as a result, she ended up dealing with treatments, and menopause...  thankfully she's been officially in the clear for 15 years (16 this spring)

BUT, where i was going with this... it may be that your body might not be ready for that?

if the doc says "well you might want kids later" feel free to slap him, but if he says that it would lead to internal imbalances, then it might be a procedure to look for as our options grow...  what you asked about then might not be what they do now...

I got Essure done, and it has been fan-farking-tastic. My tubes are confirmed blocked, scars completely formed, and I had not one side effect and never even needed so much as an Advil.



My sister got Essure done after giving birth to her one and only child, and she loves it, too.  But like a lot of women, she had a very, very hard time finding a doctor who would sterilize her.  I think it took a better part of a year to find one (she lives in a small town and found finally found a doctor a couple counties away).

robohobo: Esroc: robohobo: Paternity tests should be offered at every birth. Seriously.

 If offered then most husbands/wives will refuse it as to not risk pissing off their significant other. And they're pretty easy to get if you really do want one.

Then offer them quietly. Perhaps write it into insurance requirements. Too many women tricking their poor husbands into raising someone else's bastard.


It's an extremely rare phenomenon. I doubt it happens even 1% of the time.

If you don't trust your wife, well then you either married the wrong person or you have issues.

cynicalminion: megarian: not_an_indigo: megarian: not_an_indigo: I had my tubes tied, no kids because I don't want them. So no chance to trap a guy.

I like to think that's not the reason I'm single.

I'm "too young" to get my tubes tied...said FIVE doctors so far.

Wtf


So basically no one under 30 can get their tubes tied. Awesome.

WTF indeed...I was 25.

I was just sayin that has not been my experience. A few of my guy friends are snipped. I've been trying to get my tubes tied and have been to several doctors. Five so far. None of them have been willing. But I'm sure I'll find one soon. I'm pretty determined :)

so, have any of the docs brought up issues with YOUR body reacting?  just asking because my mom had a complete hysterectomy after a grapefruit-sized tumor on one of her ovaries twisted her tube and sent her to the hospital with abdominal pain...

as a result, she ended up dealing with treatments, and menopause...  thankfully she's been officially in the clear for 15 years (16 this spring)

BUT, where i was going with this... it may be that your body might not be ready for that?

if the doc says "well you might want kids later" feel free to slap him, but if he says that it would lead to internal imbalances, then it might be a procedure to look for as our options grow...  what you asked about then might not be what they do now...


A tubal is not the same as a hysterectomy...

The My Little Pony Killer: ITT: It's okay, even encouraged, for guys to lie about their birth control usage. The instant a woman does it, however...

What in the name of holy fark are you bleating about?

How the hell are men "encouraged" to lie about birth control usage?  And why the fark would we want to?

i know this, i was just saying that it might not just be age as a factor.  there might be other factors. that's why i said, if it's just "you might want kids later", smack the twunt and tell him to do it anyway.  but if there's some other concern, make them tell you what it is, and get it checked out.   "reproductive health" isn't just a vetmed course...  so ask questions if it's gone past the "you're too young"-punchtothejunk-"you were trying to say yes?"

I think it took a better part of a year to find one (she lives in a small town and found finally found a doctor a couple counties away).


Essure was approved by the FDA in 2002 for female sterilization. I finally had the procedure done earlier this year. I danced in the doctor's office when I signed the consent. When I got there on procedure day and had to give the final verbal approval, a kid in the next room had been running around, screaming, yelling, and looking in other patient's rooms for 90 minutes before my doctor came in to get the thumbs up. He asked if I was sure. I pointed in the direction of that screaming kid and said 'I absolutely, positively, pope-is-catholic, bears-shiat-in-the-woods am certain I will never want one of those.'

The day I watched the monitor during the hysterosalpingogram (contrast fluoroscope to confirm blockage) and saw those coils and none of the dye going past the scars, with the radiologist and my doctor both confirming they are blocked, I said 'This is the best movie I have ever seen. Best movie I will ever see.' I really don't think anything can top it. I started trying to get fixed when I was 18. I turned 35 a couple weeks after the procedure.

Men have extremely few options as it is, and it's not like they can lie and say 'Of course I'm taking my pill on time every day.' The idea that men routinely like about using birth control is ludicrous.

i believe it's in reference to the guys who don't tell women they've been neutered until the women tearfully confess the birth control didn't work, and "what are we going to do"

at which point they say "ask whoever got you pregnant, because i've been snipped."

but there are still people asking the internet if the baby THEY ARE CARRYING IN THEIR BODY is theirs...

How exactly is it the guy who's the douchebag if she cheated and got pregnant and wants to spring the babytrap but can't because the guy she's trying to trap is sterile?

i THINK it's that the guy's supposed to automatically TELL her he's been neutered, instead of waiting for her to spring the babytrap and then c*ntp*nting her.  if he tells her first, she can find other ways to lure him in.  if he tells her after, she's gotta go back and try and find the guy who DID knock her up.  and that's just too much effort, dammit.  men should be more considerate.

Maybe she shouldn't cheat and get knocked up by some other guy.

And I sure hope she wasn't lying about being on the pill too.
