Default Vascetomy

So I'm set up to have this done on Friday. Anyone here had this done? The more I research it the more I want to back out of it.

Let me give you the backstory on why I'm going to get it done. Back in January my wife gave birth to our only son. Things went bad. She got the flu that in turn sent her into labor. Then our son was born with the flu. Very bad times. After this my wife spent 13 days at the U of M for post pardum depression. And she does not want to go thru this again. And we have been married ten years and she has never wanted children but now we have our son. Don't get me wrong she loves him very much but is still very depressed. She goes three times a week to therapy. And I do as much as I can but I leave the house at 225 am to start work at 3 am. So I'm not as much help as I'd like to be.

But to get back on subject. What are the pros and cons of this procedure?

Had it done 19 years ago. Still works fine and you can't tell the difference. Word of caution, take the suggested length of time to do nothing otherwise you'll see swelling.

Mine was a walk in the park. But really make sure you dont want anymore kids. Other than having a little asian female student watch and me being drugged up thinking all sorts of naughty things, I was in and out in no time. I went on a road trip the next day. Like 5 hours. But no side effects here. Mine works better than before.

I didn't have it done, but a co-worker did. Here's a tip: Never tell the guys you work with you are having this done. That's the part he claims to regret.

I had it done 5 years ago. The procedure wasn't near as bad as I thought it would be. I did take a little longer to heal than most but besides that no problems.

Plumbing works the same... Just make sure you have a bag of frozen peas and some Ziploc bags. Use one bag full until they get warm, throw them in the freezer and get another one, keep repeating...

Like someone above says, take the time on your back... Your front will appreciate it in the short term...

As a joke you can tell your wife that the Dr recommends Green Giant peas and not the cheap ones...

This too. If I remember right I had to back afterwards to make sure the tank was empty.

I had it done 4 years ago by the Scottish guy at St. Joes in Ann Arbor. No problems and nothing to be scared of.

I'm going in sept for mine. It really isn't good for a woman to be on birth control for so long.

Don't be a pussy, it's soooooo worth it! Once you get past the desire to pull out and blow your load into the curtains, you will enjoy worry free, nuts deep stress relief.

My vasectomy was sort of a bad experience but it was still worth it to me. My doctor (Doctor Cummings, true story) is an ex military doc and carries himself accordingly. When I was sitting in the stirrups, I was dealing with the stress by being a smartass. Since it does hurt some (man up, you'll live), and I was spread eagle, I joked by saying "Oh man, my pussy hurts". The doctor started laughing and accidently doinked my dickhead with the caughterizing iron. My jimmy hat was not happy! Other than that, not a big deal. You end up with a little tiny hole in your bean bag that they may leave open to heal correctly and your junk will be sore for a few days. A few sessions with a bag of frozen peas and you will feel fine. I got me twins cut on a Thursday and I was on my farm tractor bouncing around without issue by Sunday.

A few days of discomfort, a lifetime of worry free discharges deep in the promised land. Seriously, sex is so much more relaxed when you take the twerp fear out of the equation. When you are fully healed, everything looks and feels the same except for the chilly like semen you will produce because of the lack of swimmers. Just kidding, your wife will say it looks, feels, and tastes the same!
