Several years ago, my wife gave up her fourteen years of having an Intra-Uterine Device. Her experience hadn’t been perfect and any reinsertion had some risk involved. It was love/hate for me since it DID prevent pregnancy, but it had those damned nylon threads that hung out of her uterus, which I could feel. The … Continue reading
I wanted to share the details of my recent vasectomy for the stories section. Mine is similar to other stories, though I am unique in that I pursued a free vas through the local Planned Parenthood, and am a recovering Sex Addict, which added some unexpected turns to surgical recovery. 3 months pre-surgery My wife … Continue reading
A few weeks ago I had a vasectomy. Strangely, I was less apprehensive about getting the surgery than I was about attending the consultation that preceded it a few weeks earlier. I did think occasionally about canceling, but it was more to do with the nervousness about being sliced open than the consequences of infertility. … Continue reading

I’m a 47 year old and moderately active. This is what worked for me. (and worked well, I might add). I got mine 48 hours ago. I got a keyhole version (one small central cut), vas were tied and cauterized. I got Novocaine (Lidocaine). That was the only minor pain during the operation. 20 minutes … Continue reading
I decided to have a vasectomy 2 years after my divorce with 3 children in the middle. I wanted one at 19 years old but the doctor said I was too young and I listened to him, glad I had some children before undergoing surgery. Had a Traditional Scalpel Vasectomy in early 2011 by a … Continue reading
I had a vasectomy in September 2010 after a casual warning from my urologist that 1 out of 150 guys will encounter some form of chronic ball aching afterward. I felt like I was going to be the guy with no trouble since my father had a vasectomy with no problems. I figured that one … Continue reading
I am 22 years old and have no kids nor a significant other – this is strictly a scare-prevention tactic. I got a referral to a urologist who has a good reputation. It appears that the doc and I have the same birthday (he’s 12 years older), are both the oldest of a family of … Continue reading
Later this year me and my fiancée are getting married and the subject of children has come up several times while we’ve been together. She never wanted to have kids and I was never particularly keen on the idea so after many conversations, we decided that neither of us wanted kids so we needed to … Continue reading
Monday afternoon, at 1:15 pm I had my vasectomy. Today is Wednesday morning and I am now sitting on my couch with my laptop (in my lap) adding my story to those shared here. I would like to preface with this comment: Thank God for the information and stories shared on this website. The stories … Continue reading
I used your site extensively prior to my vasectomy (which I had today) and would like to put in my experience as I go through the next few months to hopefully help others. I believe there is an adverse selection problem when it comes to reading personal stories on vasectomy because most people only want … Continue reading
I’m guessing you’re either thinking of having a vasectomy, in which case you’re looking at these stories at the right time, or like me, after it’s already gone completely wrong, and you’re wondering how much worse it’s going to get or how long it’s going to last. Well done to the first category, but I … Continue reading
I wanted to add my story to help return the favor. I spent months perusing forums leading up to the big day… would I faint? Would it hurt? Will I be laying on a table for 2 hours writhing in agony? The day came Friday morning. Despite being extremely worried, I declined the Valium. I … Continue reading

Typically I am a very positive person. I am not very positive about my vasectomy story. My wife was pregnant with our third child. I was at work at my firehouse and was having a conversation with my chief and telling him that my wife had decided to get a tubal ligation after delivery. She … Continue reading
My partner and I decided together over the summer that we definitely didn’t want any more kids and due to some complications using the mini-pill we decided on a vasectomy. We saw our G.P. and were recommended for an appointment. We are in the U.K. and the N.H.S. does vasectomies for free in most cases. … Continue reading
First, it must be said that this site is a wonderful resource. I had planned on having a vasectomy two years prior to when I actually had it done, however, I had to postpone it due to emergency surgery for testicular torsion. I discovered at 35 years of age that testicular torsion is not just … Continue reading
