I Got a Vasectomy

For men wanting to unveil the sterilization procedure done on men 460 People

    3 Days And Counting

    As a native of Venezuela, I grew up with the mentality that contraception was for women to worry about and that nobody was going to get closed to my junk with a scalpel...ever! When my wife had my second child, we had a discussion about contraception and I basically told her...

    My husband got a vasectomy in November of 2013.

    We have three sons and twin daughters. The girls are the youngest of our children just born in September of 2013. The decision had been made before their birth, if I ended up needing an emergency c-section I would get my tubes tied, if not we would have my husband get the snip...

    Nope Not Us

    Instead - we got an IUD which is perfect. Oh and we make good and very regular use of it too.

    Three Weeks After Surgery

    Just to give you some statistics from my life, which I have only because of that recent vasectomy, I'll let you know that my wife and I had se*x at least nine times since June 20th.  It's the 16th of July now, so that's 27 days, meaning se*x every three days; maybe slightly...

    When my (now estranged) wife and I decided we were through having children, we discussed it, and I 'volunteered' to have it done. My Urologist, I kid you not, was named Arrowsmith (Lot's of jokes..he has a great sense of humor). I had it done...the double tie back, staple it down...

    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...
