That which has been seen/Vasectomy Snip-all

Pages

I suggest you consider strongly how you're going to support the boys when you run...

Currently I use this

Will I have to switch to something else afterwards? For how long?

Compression shorts and gauze work great post procedure. Then, as mentioned, use frozen peas and ibuprofen.

I can't remember if I used them for running afterward or not. I feel like if there's enough soreness to require compression shorts, you shouldn't be running yet.

BTW, shorts a few sizes too small effectively achieve compression. Just try them out beforehand. You want supportively tight, but not cut-off-the-blood supply tight. Getting the right level of support creates a surprising amount of comfort, for the first week or so.

Done.

OH GOD YES!!!

Got it done this morning and back at home!

Didn't post beforehand because the last two days have been filled with anxiety so I didn't want to post about it and then bail on the procedure. As with most things, the anxiety over it was by far the worst part.

Now's as good a time as any to start playing Control and watch The Irishman. Doctor's orders. It's not like I can masturbate to fill the time.

Yeah, that's a quick way to cause serious problems for the vasectomy not working, and it going from "outpatient, 15 minutes total" to "OK, when did you want your surgery??"

My recommendation. Stick to the 3 days super light duty. They tell you to, but you'll start feeling good enough to do more, listen to the doc and don't do more. Wear the jock strap for at least 7 days

Druidpeak speaks the truth.

On behalf of all females, I wish to say thank you to the males who have gotten this done. Sometimes we like not to be the responsible ones.

Yeah still hoping for baby #2 around here but this won't be far behind. Heck of an interesting thread.

Oh yeah, count me in as of a few months ago.

Had it done in a clinic and aside from paying a heck of a lot more than I was led to believe it would cost as a result I can't really complain.

To add to this, I am a complete baby when it comes to medical stuff. I still need to lie down for blood samples. So you can imagine how much I stressed about this, especially with the typical dumb thing of reading things online about times this procedure went wrong. And in the end I got so anxious, I might have considered walking out if I hadn't taken that Ativan he offered.

But in the end, I can say it caused less discomfort than some filings I've had at the dentist. If you can get a doctor with a good reputation in town, and hopefully the no needle/no scalpel version like me, then it's a no brainer. I felt a few small pops for the jet freezing - a fraction of pain of a needle - and about 6 minutes of a slightly tight feeling while he did his thing - and I was back to checking my phone. It's now 36 hours later and I still would call what I have discomfort more than pain. (Knock on wood.)

Forget tubal ligation, the process for her is probably worse when she gets a pap smear or an IUD put in. Granted, I have a desk job and can work from home so it's no big deal for me to sit around and do nothing, but I'm glad I could "man up."

Looking forward to the test in 3 months to confirm I'm sterile and I get to tell my current girlfriend that she's free to quit her birth control that gives her extra cramping.
