They do a no scalpel, no needle vasectomy now. Only a 2mm incision and a 10 min procedure. You can drive home that hour. I think it is very practical for men who are finished having kids. Why is it always our job to handle the birth control?

Did mine 8 month ago. No problem, a little uncomfortable and a little freaky watching sensitive parts of you turn really funny shades of purple hehehe.
My wife went through child birth. least I could do.
Now she wants to have spontaneous sex just about anywhere. No down side here.

vasectomies cause less volumn......since i love to swallow big cum loads, i don' t think they are good. my friend had it done. 4 months later his loads where less than half of what they use to be.

I am going to have one. I decided that when my EX girlfriend cheated on me and ended out getting knocked up by the guy she cheated on me with.

I have never been able to have children:
I have been sterile all my life; being an orphan, I have no idea why.

It is always an option and depends on your situation, age, and who you are with.

Those that I have been with over the years are either on the pill for a reason that they chose and not just for birth control......many use it to regulate their periods, help with cramping, control hormones, etc.

Others had their tubes tied after the last birth of a child for reasons when they were married, and some had to have a hysterectomy. All valid reasons to take charge or their own bodies and I did not have to do mine that way.

I would be happy to get one when in a relationship that involves someone that needs me to have one.

Just my thoughts on this subject.

when I was pregant I asked my husband to have one to see his answer, and he was like no way is anyone going to do that to me. Didn't matter that I was going to get really big, and have a baby, and go threw all that pain. We desided I would get my tubes cut, tied, and burned when I was done having the baby. Thought they would do it, as soon as I had the baby, but no they waited a day, and it felt like someone took a base ball bat to my belly. That on top of just having a baby. Just because he wouldn't get fixed. My brother, and my sisters old man, and a uncle have gotten fixed. But thats all the men in the family. They prefer the girls take care of it. I think thats sad. On the other hand I wanted fixed years ago, just didn't turn out that way. Long story.

vasectomies are good for the prevention of unwanted pregnancies....BUT, and there's always a but, in some states even if you live with a woman for 5 years or more and she has children, she can turn around and make you the legal gaurdian of her children and many courts have sided with the woman. Many men have left this country to escape that very thing just because they hepled out a woman with and infant for five years or longer.

Cheaper (and easier than a hysterectomy) and reversable, easy and cheap, why not do it for your loved one,
=====================================
I'm splitting hairs here but who told you they were reversible.

In THEORY a good 90% of them are reversible if the doctor sets to with his scapel again.
In practice the guys are so delighted with the vasectomy that, given the option of a reversal, they usually tell the doctor exactly what s/he can do with that there scapel. Boy do the doctors wince.

- To test your capability

Wait a minute, I'm pretty sure there are enough women in science today to find one who is capable of coming up with a pill for men.
===============================
Several Australian isntitutions are very close to something thats commercially viable. They try too keep the progress reports fairly quiet though.

Because every time they make a breakthourgh and get that one step closer it leaks to the press.

And thousands of guys are knocking down their front doors the next day trying to get hold of these new male pills.

Honestly? When I hear mens' responses (which is nil) to this topic I get mainly pissed off, its like they relate their manhood to their virility......guys~~~come now, get real!
============================================
it's you who needs to take a course in reality m dear. Not the guys. This is a vasectomey in paticular, conraception in general discussion.
Not a man bashing session.

You women assume that, if a man walks crooked, or pases out in the street, its because hes drunk. I know different. The last time I passed out in the street was courtesy of a double dose of flu bodering on pnemonia. And I definitely know the difference between the drunk stagger and the vasectomy tiptoe.

==================================
Please post the name and location of your doctor on the board.

If it was that easy then s/he's good.


Mine was harder than a tooth filling but easier than a root canal. I HATE those root canals.

When I asked the nurse if I could safely ride my motorbike home from the operation she collapsed in giggles for five mins. When she pulled herself together she advised me to take a taxi. I did. But I could have ridden the bike home if need be.
