I got this done a month ago. Have one and one on the way. Prob should have waited until next is born but timing was perfect. Called and made an appointment two days later go in for consultation, said do it. 20 minutes later walking out the door. I iced for about 6 hours and that was it. I was given a script for drugs but lost it before I had it filled. Never needed it anyways.
Took a week off from Fapping. Hittiing skins another week later. Took about 3 weeks for tiny scar to heal.
No pain, quick, $750 without using insurance.
Just make sure you really want it done. Reversal is supposed to be painful and can cost 5 figures.
I'll add a funny story to this thread.
Long ago (like at age 12) decided I really didn't need to have the expense, responsibility or time drain (not to mention lack of sleep) required to embark on a 20 year (and longer) project of children.
As a friend down the street said. "I don't know which is worse. Owning your own business or kids. I guess kids. You can't fire 'em."
At any rate, rather late in the game, age 30ish, after playing russian roulette with women and being lucky enough to not start a child inadvertently, I decided that it was time to take care of things.
Especially since some of the women I was with couldn't stop talking about children even though we'd agreed that wasn't what we wanted. I figured I couldn't trust them at all to be clear headed and take the pill. Once the baby clock starts ticking emotionally and mentally you can't really tell what they are up to.
I arranged with a doc to have the procedure and when I showed up, there was a new young woman doc who was getting her chops down (literally) under the tutelage of the guy that had been doing thousands of these. You are under a local and can hear the conversation. Went something like this:
Her: "That one?"
Him: "No, the other one"
I felt like I was in a Danny Glover, Mel Gibson where they are deciding which wire to cut.
"The Red One?"
"Not THAT one, the Blue One!!"
It was a very funny afternoon. Never looked back on getting this done. No regrets. Peace of mind is priceless.
After vasectomy: In general after about 40 ejaculations the sperm count will be zero. So it depends on how frequent the sex the person is having before he totally empty his vas. Masturbation can be considered "sex" for this purpose.
Patients are always advised to have no unprotected sex after vasectomy until after 2 sperm counts are negative!! After two negative sperm count the person is "permanently sterile"!
I understand the apprehension doctors may have at permanently altering a man's chances for procreating - even if a young man does not. People change. What you want at 30 may not be what you want at 35, 40, etc.
The procedure is quick and painless. My insurance covered it as well, two $20 co-pays for two visits (best $40 I ever spent ). Also, before you start back up with the sex I strongly recommend you go back when they tell you to test to make sure everything was successful. They said that over 95% of men never go back to make sure it was successful and those rare stories you hear of it not working is mostly because they had sex too early after the procedure or the procedure was not successful. I believe you'll need to wait about 3 months before having sex again too. It takes some time for your little men to fully flush themselves out.
3 months? Ouch.
I'm doing this for me I don't ever want kids. If my GF is determined to have them then she can find someone else to raise them.
The reason I have waited this long is that I wanted her to turn 30 first. She had one last tick of her biological clock. Now hopefully it will be years of no strings attached sex as it was meant to be. I'm 32 and I doubt I will ever feel much differently.
I will probably opt for the somewhat reversible option. I just made an appointment for a consultation next month.
If she ever twisted my arm we could always adopt a Asian baby.
Just make sure that you tell anybody who tells you to pick up anything heavier than a can of your choice beverage to suck eggs. My wife said it was "my idea" so she made me carry my two bowling balls with limbs.
I was in pain and all different shades of purple for a month. I was a fresh 28 btw.
About two years ago a buddy of mine at work decided that after he and his wife had two kids that he would explore their options to make sure that they were two and through. He is an engineer by trade and is pretty analytical so after he heard from several people that the procedure could not only be painful but sometimes not 100% effective he took it upon himself to see if there was another way.
He did some research on the internet (always the best way right?) and found out that there were several instances of people BOILING THEIR SATCHEL REPEATEDLY in water above 130 degrees for an extended period of time that it would cause a man to lose his sperm count and in his mind eventually it would cause his sperm production to cease.
So onward he traveled to consult with his doctor and after laying out his plan and getting the "sure, why not" from his doc along with testing a sample to get a starting point he assembled what he thought were the tools that he needed to complete his experiment. He gathered up a new crock pot, one of those toilet seats and stands that you might use for camping, a kitchen timer and a meat thermometer... hopefully you can create the visual in your mind.
He then set out to dunk his plums for 30 minutes a day for a solid month at 130 degrees. According to his wife who validated this story for us during a Christmas party last year he had her monitor the temperature and time and in the end she made sure that she muffled the initial screams that he let out for the first week when he got himself used to the temperature.
Anyhoo, for those of you who are interested in knowing the experiment was a complete failure and he ended up just getting himself fixed. The twist of irony to this whole thing is that about a week after the operation happened his left ball swelled up to about the size of a racquetball and he held no shame for us while whipping it out in my office no less to a group of five of his closest friends.
I have one, too:
Someone I know, who all the girls called "Fast, Fearless, Freddie" finally got snipped after knocking up 5 different women Being kind of a numbnuts (pun intended) he refused to follow doctor's orders and his balls swelled up to the size of grapefruits and he had purple bruising down his thighs and up into his belly. He couldn't walk for two weeks. We all drank beer and laughed at him
My plan is to crank out a heaping helping of vaguely ethnic children so white people* have to rack their brain and determine my kid's ethnicity when they're old enough to venture into J. Crew** on their own. They'll know the joy that I know.
*Or alternatively black people
**Or alternatively a local soul food or Jamaican restaurant

If you are in a committed relationship and don't want to avoid fapping for a whole week why not talk to your better half about an IUD? It's not permanent, fairly painless and the one with hormones makes periods disappear.
Just a thought. Of course, if you plan to skeet all over town it does not matter what the ladies do. (but really...wrap that **** up, b)
if you get your balls snipped I think your voice will change.......

I've actually put quite a bit of though into the "what if something happens to her" scenario over the last couple of years. Provided nothing happens, I don't regret my decision.

Just an update, I had mine done yesterday. The shots were the worst (one in each nut and one in the skin). Pretty much the same as a shot in the arm, just slightly more uncomfortable. Didn't feel anything else. Had to stop taking the pain meds b/c they were causing me to vomit. I'm not in pain (24 hrs later), I'm just a little uncomfortable. Would do again...
Did it when my son was 7, no big deal, no major swelling or anything.
My doc asks you to "clear the pipes" about 30 times then come in and have a sperm test. I was cleared then.
