Chris’ experience: Failed vasectomy

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

An epic vasectomy story

Here is my male surgical sterilization experience. I wanted to record something other than the generic, “I worried, it didn’t hurt, it turned black and blue, we tried it out and it still worked, my balls ache a bit, I am childfree, whee!” story. Repeating the mistake of Polonius, “Brevity is the soul of wit, … Continue reading

Stuart’s experience: My vasectomy story

I had a vasectomy about 11 years ago after the birth of our fourth child. I saw this as my duty since my wife had delivered our children and took responsibility for contraception up until that time.

Richard’s experience: Think twice

This is my sad tale of woe. However, the most sympathy I’ve ever received is, “Sucks to be you!” For many years growing up, I never gave much thought to the idea of parenthood. Even when discussing it with friends at an early age (e.g. 12, 13, 14) most of them said they wanted two … Continue reading

Fern’s experience: Story of regret

As I’m sure is the case with a lot of men, the idea of a vasectomy came from my wife, who got it from one of her friends… This subject would have never come up otherwise. It’s very difficult to say no to the person you love most in your life, so I started doing … Continue reading
