  • my hubbys dr told him to put it in the fridge until we can get it in- told us it can be done the night before but bring it in right away in the morning. He does his sample in May so I think he will probably just do it that morning & take it in. His main worry is "how much do I need to get in there?!" LOL!
    and yes ladies you shouldent skip the follow up!!!!! You can definatly still get pregnant while your man is snipped. Two of my husbands co-workers wives got pregnant after the big snip and had to have it re-done! It sometimes takes a long time for the sperm to get out of the system to- we will NOT be risking it & will get all the additional samples done (one at 6 weeks, one at a year and one every 5 years after that!!

  • My Hubby had it done last yr and didn't give the sample, it's been a yr and no worries so we didn't stress over it... I wouldn't think doing it the night before is a good idea, sorry I couln't help...
