The doctor who performed the surgery, he/she is a... urologist?
Yep, urology does it.

LOL.
Thanks everyone for your input, doesn't sound like any family has had regrets. We've only got 2 kids, and my husband is much older, and I'm happy saying, this is our family, we have 2 kids, which is why we're entertaining the snip. But... and this might sound silly... but my big fear is that somethng horribly awful will happen to one of our 2 babies and then we'll think, oh, very sad, let's make another baby to make up for the one lost. Werid, I know.

we were discussing it, but I read that it can have some negative side effects later on in life...and decided against.

Don't feel bad. This was my thought process when I was pregnant with DD2. I wouldn't let DH go get it before we had her because I kept thinking if something happened to this baby, we would want to have another. We would not want just one child. Since having her that thinking has gone away but vasectomies are reversible. It may cost $10,000 but it is reversible. There is also adoption which we have always wanted to do anyway. Or that is our line of thinking when we start going through the what if's.

I haven't had one but, ironically, I was looking through the "Best of Craigslist" yesterday and ran across this - http://www.craigslist.org/about/best/sdo/3148365387.html

It really made me laugh.

With any surgery, inpatient, outpatient, simple or otherwise, there are risks.
