Anyone considering vasectomy an option?

Does anyone have experience or have heard of anyone having gotten one?
Complications? Regrets? Best thing that ever happened?

Re: Anyone considering vasectomy an option?

My DH had one in August. Today he goes in for his analysis to make sure it worked. It was the best decision we ever made. We had to get special permission because he was 23 and we only have 2 children. I have a medical history that allowed him to get it done no problem and we have no regrets. He wanted it done very badly and maybe that's what made the difference but he said it wasn't bad at all. He didn't even take any pain meds. He followed the instructions for recovery and recovered just fine. I wasn't allowed back with him during the procedure since he had it done at a military hospital but he said it wasn't bad at all. He said he just made jokes with the doctor the whole time and it didn't hurt and he was done quickly. He'd do it again if he had to.

Thanks Hilary and Brittney, really helpful. Whitney, you'll have to follow up and let us know how it went.
The doctor who performed the surgery, he/she is a... urologist?

DS saw a urologist. His procedure was smooth and simple. Recovery was very easy. Required some extra tv time for him for a day or so and a few throwaway bags of frozen peas. No carrying of the kids or anything much for a while as it kinda caused a 'pulling' feeling but that was not a big deal. They want mama to carry them anyway

Besides the procedure, it's very freeing to know I'm not pregnant every month. I am extremely fertile and having to use barriers plus abstain for long periods of time around ovulation was too much for us, when we knew we were not wanting anymore biological children. Taking out the option was the best option for our family.

No regrets for anyone so far? Hmmm...me and dh have been talking about it. I think we should. We have one of each. I turned 30 this yr so my age is a non issue but I feel complete. The only thing that ever throws me, and this is gonna make me sound looney...when I have DD in a carrier on my back, I get this weird feeling like I am forgetting something. Kinda like when people are looking for their glasses and theyre on their face. Idk why it happens...doesnt seem to happen when she is in her crib but I wear her on my back everyday and Id say this feeling happens a couple times a wk. Its not even that I forget shes back there (Im really not that stupid, honest)..its just a weird feeling I cant describe.
