Had it 3 years ago after my third daughter was born(3 strikes and I was done). Just do as the doc says before and after. I think my insurance did cover it. I know my doc made the wife sign off on it also saying we didn't want any more kids. No problems and glad I did it.

Insurance covered mine 100%. It is much cheaper for them in the long run. My wife gets baby fever once in a while but it is very short lived. Mainly because we had kids early and some of her friends are having kids now.

Doctors have to get permission from somebody other than you for your health care? Please tell me her signing off on it was not required for the procedure. WTF... A woman can get an abortion with out her husband or anybody else knowing, but a guy can't get his balls chopped?

I'm on the other end all my friends had kids young. Hell most my friends kids are in high school. I'm 35 and just starting time to stop it before another one comes along and I'm 45!

Bought the beer and peas today. Have a few DVDs to watch over the weekend. I hope it rains most of the weekend so I don't get pissed I sat around all weekend and it was nice. Anyone that's had this done had to climb stairs? I have a ton of them at my house.

You are putting way to much worry in this. It's not a big deal and you can still do stuff right after the surgury, you just can't strain yourself by lifting, pushing, etc. Stairs will not be a problem. Naked jumping jacks? I'd draw the line at that.

Had the option of just a shot or being knocked out for the procedure. I got knocked out, had it done on a Friday, relaxed for the weekend went to work Monday, I was golfing a week or so later. It has been 11 years and don't regret it a bit.

My grandpa had one done back in the 50s and my grandma got pregnant with my dad a while later. I was told there was a lot of tension in the doctor's office before my grandpa found out it was his. He got it done before they perfected the procedure and he was one of the statistics that it reversed.

When I had mine done I could feel him tugging on my sack tubes , I could also see and smell the smoke from him cauterizing said tubes.

I went home and drank a 12 pack afterward.... It was only tender for a few days but it really wasn't that big of a deal.

Cause sometimes guys like to "lay some pipe" without worrying about reproducing or have had enough reproductions running around already? I think the answer you seek is pretty black and white don't you think? Rubber is expensive these days.

Yes. He needed proof that she was my wife and that we both understand that we would not be able to have any more kids. I think it was also because I was 27 when I had it done which he felt was young even with having three kids already. Even though you can get it reversed(not covered by insurance) for about $10G. I worked with a guy who did it because him and his wife decided to have another kid. The funny thing is they ended up with triplets on top of the three they already had.

quoted for truth.

I had it done in the winter, after our 2nd son was born. Dr. ButterFingers dropped the tray of instruments after opening an incision and clamping me off.

Apparently they didn't do their dishes the night before, so I got an extra numbing shot while I waited, clamped off for their auto-clave to do it's thing on a fresh set of instruments.

Feeling great, and seeing a lot of snow accumulate that morning, coupled with having an oversized snowthrower that's a PITA to get out of the garage I was reluctant to only do my own driveway since I had the day off.

I did 8 driveways.

Spent the next 4 days in bed clamoring for another bag of frozen peas and was black and blue practically 1/2 way down my thighs.

once healed up however, no issues, or noticeable differences at all, or any misgivings about having it done.

LAY SOME PIPE
we were done after having 2 healthy boys. I like my lower lip attached to my face, so I wasn't about to suggest to my wife, who had given birth to two babies approaching 9lbs that she should bite the bullet and have herself fixed...

Have the rest of you guys that have done this, had to have permission from your wives/SOs to have this procedure done? I am not pro-abortion, but if a woman has the right to kill a baby without consent from a father, who the fukc can rationalize that it's not ok for a guy to get his balls zipped up with out consent from a broad that could, one day maybe be a baby momma. That's fucking outrageous.

If I get this done, and the doc makes me ask for permission from my wife as a condition of the procedure, I'll walk my happy ass outta his office.

no I did not have to have anyone sign off on it. if I had, I would have not so subtly reminded said practitioner that it's a free market for medical services and done exactly what you're talking about - walked out the door
