So I am thinking of taking a break from the ol’ lady pill. I’ve been taking it for a while now and figure it’s time for a body break (not the Hal Johnson & Joanne McLeod kind.)
But there are no plans to start a family any time soon – perhaps ever. So my husband offered the only thing he could; perhaps the most unselfish thing a man can offer his long-term lady: a vasectomy. What a guy. He would snip for me? I must be one lucky 30-something-year-old lady who would rather use her spare bedroom as a walk-in closet than a baby’s room.
But I don’t think he knows exactly how the procedure is done. And frankly, I don’t think I know either. Is it inside of his…? Outside? Do you shake hands with your doctor after? A high-five? I feel like a hug would be in order after that intimate procedure. It definitely seem less invasive than what I would have to do in terms of a ‘snip’, non?
So instead of Googling ‘vasectomy’ and ‘tubes tied’ at work, I thought I would put it out to you. Can you tell me your experience? Ladies, would you/have you tied those tubes? Or do you think it would be a heck of a lot easier for a man to go to his doctor for the ol’ ‘snip snip?’
