My SO said that he will get snipped after we are done having kids. He doesn't want me to have to have any surgeries.

DH wants to get a vasectomy when we are done. He doesn't want me going through a surgery, since the vasectomy is much simpler for him.

I will be 'getting fixed' because DH doesn't have insurance that pays for it & I do. He can't afford to be out of work or have lifting restrictions because of his job. If I don't get my tubes tied after this baby then we will be exclusively using BC, condoms & tracking my ovulation.

I went ahead and got a tubal because he really didn't want to go through it and who am I to force him to permanently alter his body? if i bugged enough I'm sure he would have eventually done it, but I wasn't about to wait around for that haha



I had the procedure that uses titanium clamps

I had it done. My husband has a fear of hospitals and undergoing procedures.



It was pretty easy for me. Sedation and procedures are fairly routine for me with my GI condition so a tubal wasn't that much different. I needed about 48 hours to sleep off the anesthesia and I was good to go.

I had a csection so they did it after my daughter was born. My husband will be going soon to get snipped also.

I am snipped... it's not a big deal... in & out in 30 minutes... and you have sore nuts for about a week... and then you're back to normal... whatever any guy heard about men's behavior changing and depression etc... is just bull... I mean yea, ppl will crack the occassional joke "you got your balls cut off"... but a quick reminder that I cat go bare back and not knock anybody up quickly shuts em up and they get p***s envy :)

Quoting Mrs.Mud:" My husband has already agreed to a vasectomy when we are done having children."


My husband was ready to have one after his second was born but now that we're truly done he's back tracking

I'll refuse sex until he gets it done, lol. I'm terrified of getting an IUD and I shouldn't have to/don't want to worry about any other kind of birth control daily or monthly. If this is our girl, we'll be done. Praying for pink!
