the first nut was painless. when he went to the second nut, it was hurting a little, so he shot me with some more anesthetic and i was good to go.

little sore now, but it's not too bad. totally worth it.

well, i wasn't watching, but my wife was. she said they stuck it right in my scrotum. i felt the needle, but honestly it was kinda hard to tell what they were sticking it in. the valium didn't help.

it was pretty cool that they let her stand there and watch them clamp off the vas and snip them right out.

It was harder to watch him be uncomfortable from across the room that it was to be beside the doctor watching the actually procedure...but I have no problem with gore on tv/movies/tdub either.

It was really cool to see though, especially since they don't just snip the vas, they cut out a little portion probably 1/8 inch on both sides.

Yeah, a vasectomy is probably the most reliable once you get past those first months and prove that your semen is all clear.

But I saw a vasectomy reversal on one of those health channels and it's definitely cringe worthy. Those are some tender parts that they're poking around in.

Don't be that guy like the guy the SO worked with. He made the wife get snipped (which is major surgery) so he didn't have to have another guy touch his balls.

an update in case anyone cares:

the real soreness was gone in 3 or 4 days. i was still a little tender a little over a week after the procedure. pretty much only hurt when things got in a bad position. i'm good to go now. i'd highly recommend the procedure.

I wonder how hard it would be to find a doctor to perform this for me. I'm not married or in a relationship, and I know a lot of docs won't do it without certain conditions being met.

You have to find the right one, but I'm sure one will do it. When I had my IUD put in it was a newer trend and lots of doctors wouldn't put one in a single childless girl but my GYN would because she knew me and was fine with it. And this is "safer" because it doesn't put you at risk of getting infections from STDs that would leave you barren.

Call planned parenthood and see who they suggest for it. That's how I found the gyno that tied my tubes. I got a list from them and looked for the one that I thought would do the best job. Went and had an appointment with 2 of them before I made the final decision, but the surgery is much more involved for women.

i had absolutely no issues being a married 25 year old with no kids and getting it done. the "consultation" was really just a rundown of the procedure. there was no "are you sure?", "you're pretty young for this", "no kids never???" type stuff.

on the day of the procedure, i had a different doctor than the one from the consultation. as he was preparing, he asked how many kids we had. i said "none and i'd like to stay that way." he says "you sure?" "yep!" "alright."

^^^ IUDs rule. Every girl should have one.

Unfortunately I can't dictate that, and there's no guarantee that she couldn't have it taken out and not mention that to me, so...

^ Has there been any effect sexually? Everything works just like it always did? Feels just the same as before when you empty the magazine?

Here's a thread I posted three years ago about this:

http://thewolfweb.com/message_topic.aspx?topic=598204

I'm still 95% sure that I'm not having kids. The only concern I have now is that when I am old I will have no one to advocate for me to make sure I'm getting quality care when I am not competent enough to make these decisions for myself.

I stand by my comments in your thread, Shawna. Still don't want kids, would much rather retire early and spend more time at the lakehouse I'll be able to buy in lieu of spending money raising a child.

My wife and I have been discussing this for the past week. The more we talk about the less motivated we are to have a kid. Neither of us is especially attached to the idea of children other than "It'd be cool if...." The possible complications, cost, and time all have us leaning toward being child-free.

That's the price you pay. You can't have your cake and eat it too. Those who choose to have children subject themselves to a great deal of misery during their lives, but if they are lucky enough to have children who care for them and who survive to their parents' old age, it may be returned.

In a perfect world the level of happiness would be net zero.

"People who have children are just as smug about their choice. Either side has a right to be satisfied with their decision."


I wish there was a term that wasn't loaded. "Childfree" treats children as a malady, much like "disease-free". "Childless" treats the lack of children as a great loss, much like "heartless". It would be nice if the discussion could go on between interested parties on both sides without each using a loaded term meant to belittle the other.

No need to convince others why you are doing what you are doing is the right way. Whatever path you choose is the right choice for you and that is how it should be.

I'm not saying that each camp should continue evangelizing the other, I'm just saying that it would be nice for a netural term to exist other than "people with no kids". Since when is lack of discussion between differering viewpoints a good thing?

Though I suppose it's not the point of this thread, so I'll say no more.

Sometimes I feel like I should know one way or another whether or not I want kids. I admit that part of me is super selfish and I don't want to commit to something so stressful and permanent, or give up my cushy lifestyle and on-a-whim travel opportunities.

But on the other hand, sometimes I think - how hard could it be? Seems like every idiot I went to high school with is procreating (multiple times) and their gene pools really should have stopped with them. I'm being selfish to the world because my husband and I are both intelligent and well-rounded; I can only assume our offspring could attempt to counteract the stupid. But I also worry that it's too late and the world is going to shit anyway. /conceited rant
