Here's one for the men - Vasectomy advice please

I'd like some advice for any men out there that have had 'the chop' please.

My Hubby is about to have it done and we've been told to get some tight fitting underwear, others have said to get a jock strap.

Could anyone that has been in the same situation please advise on the best underwear/support that you used and any tips or advice you may have.

A bit of a touchy subject I know but any advice would be appreciated

Thank you xxxxx

Hi, all dependant on the op and what he is going to do after.

IE Is he back at work next day?

If he is not doing much for a couple of days just relaxing should be fine.

A couple of days with tightish normal boxers C Klein type were fine for me.

Good luck.

I was actually given a jockstrap by the hospital but chose to wear tight(ish) fitting briefs instead. What he needs is anything that provides support.

My hubby had it done, as long as nothing is swinging free he should be fine !!!

Must be a snug fit. Can't have anything swinging about.

Get a rubber ring..... i know a guy who could only sit on that for days after!

I think its wrong though - What if your situation changes?

get his some trunks rather than boxers, they are a snug fit

I know, just saying. My personal opinion. Things change

have you thought of all the other options? i am on the pill injection have been on it for 6 years one injection every 12 weeks and we are sorted and no more monthlys for me either.
#14
My Husband was given a jock strap from the hospital and then he wore snug fitting pants over the top. He was fine but then as he felt so good he decided to hang a new door in our extension and that made him swell up like a grapefruit. Make sure you husband takes it easy for a few days and look after him. I felt very lucky that my husband was prepared to do this for us, as I know a lot of men that wont.

well i dont mean to be funny sassie but if she went on the injection she wouldnt get pregnant so why put hubby through a op like that plus you dont know what the future has to hold what if they decided down the line they wanted more. i just dont see the point in putting anyone through that when i simple injection 4 times a year would sort it.thats my opinion anyway.

I know a family with 4 kids, the husband had this op done.

They had a terrible house fire and all the kids died.... something went wrong and he couldnt get it reversed.

nobody has any idea what the op and her partner have been through, so have just answered the ops question really but i do know they dont just do these things like matter of fact, you see someone and talk through all options available

Yep my dad had it done after my brother. Split with my mum then had to pay £3,000 to have it reversed. They certainly do. My wife has said no to me getting it done as she'd miss the white bit? Ha ha

apart from the fact she has just said she has had 2 kids now he gets everything he deserves!! well that is selfish more like she doesnt want to get a few injections per year and would sooner see her hubby go through this op. my sister in law got her hubby to have one why because her way of thinking was why should she do anything well i am sorry but its wrong. and all the surgeons talk you through is to make sure its the right decision thats it they dont sit there going on about pill injections for your other half.

you have no idea what the op has been trhough, most on here would see that last bit as a little bit of humour to keep the thread light, i have been through a consulation with my ex so know exactly what your gp and the consultant talk about, try not to judge someone you dont even know, for all you know a third pregancy could kill her, make her serioulsy ill, maybe she has a genetic illness that she could pass on etc,etc, im sure neither of these are the case, but it isnt up to us to say she is selfish when you dont even know anything about them or their family

I agree.

Just out of interest.... would any of you women say oooh go on then ill have a hysterectomy so i dont get pregnant or have any more kids.... no you wouldnt because as we have all said things change. Fair enough this is a small quick procedure and thousands of men have it all the time... but its a last resort if you ask me and a shame if something happened and you were desperate to have more kids
#27
We have thought about it long and hard and have made this decision together. We understand the possibilities in the future but I know I don't want any more children, regardless. It was either me have a sterilisation or him and he said that after what I'd been through having my 2 he would do this and I feel very proud of him for making the decision.
Thank you all for your opinions x

And by the way, I'm 33 with a 12 yr old and a 3 yr old and have one of each and have been blessed x

i have tried every bleedin pill out there and havent got on with any, so could never have the injection, had the new coil put in and had to be revoed 3 months later as it wasnt good for me, so yes your right it not everything suits everyone, but hey lets not let that stand in the way :thumbsup:

i had the injection after my first, it had awful effect on my monthlys, reversed it so i was week off,3 weeks on, was awful...i cant take pill due to blood pressure problems, so had the mirena coil, it was fine for me and lasted 5 years, but yeah everyone is different
#38
I had it done last year. My wife is 32 and my lad is now 6. We both decided we wanted no more kids, we are happy with the lovely one we have.

I also do not want anymore kids ever regardless of what happens in the future especially as I am nearly 40 in a few months and the thought of being an old dad is not for me.

It was my decision too so my wife could come off the pill. It was a very quick and also painless experience and was all done without the knife and healed very quickly. It is deffo not comparable to a hysterectomy which is a proper operation.

We are both glad I had it done but it wont suit everyone.

Ha ha! Hilarious but unfotunately completely wrong. :?

A little more research required methinks after which your wifes 'missing white bit' fears will be put to bed.

Well you may think differently when you're old enough for it to be an issue.

My reasons exactly - 2 kids, getting older, didn't want any more than 2. (and also after putting my wife through 2 births I thought it was my turn to do something)

Yes, we thought about "What would happen if...?", but then if we ran our lives asking that question all the time then we would be too scared to ever leave the house!
