    Well I'm still hoping for the best. They still ache. A good supporting pair of pants makes a world of difference. Its not quite as I expected. I was expecting a warm operating room (We all know that regions easier to work with in the warm) but was in actual fact bloody cold. I...

    It Was A Selfish Reason

    I had a vasectomy after my third daughter was born. I seem to have struggled through the first two children, and was shocked when my wife said the third was on the way. I cried, rather selfishly, thought I would not cope. When she was born, beautiful of course..I cried again...

    Not As Bad As You Think.

    to all the guys thinking of getting "snipped" let me tell you that it is not a big deal at all. Get over the embarrasment of being exposed during the procedure and the worst is over. Once the local anaesthetic has "frozen" your scrotum you feel no pain, only the feeling of...

    Back to Normal, Full Recovery

    Well guys, it was nothing; a week after my vasectomy I was fully recovered, not a bit of tenderness even.  Sex has not changed one iota!  Nothing else has changed either, as far as I can tell.  Have no fear!

    Real Men Are Willing To Get A Vasectomy

    I got my vasectomy years ago and I’m glad that I did. It has been so very nice over the years to not to worry about needing protection when I made love to my wife. Just wish we made love more often but that is a story for a different forum.
