  • Nice pun, lol.

    Talk to him about the side effects of birth control. They're downright scary! My husband got fixed almost 3 years ago and he was fine enough the next day that he wanted to take a little trip to the zoo with the kids! It's not as bad as he thinks it will be!

  • All you can do is talk to him. Maybe he isn't ready to make things permanent. That is a big decision and if he is not ready then you can't force him to. Talk to him and see what he is thinking.

  • Maybe get a pamphlet or print some info off the net to show it to him...or place it in the bathroom in his "reading material" for when he takes a poo...LOL thats how i sneak info into my hubby's head

  • Get the calendar out then ask him if he wants you to schedule it or if he is going to. Then say that he keeps saying he's going to do it, you just wanted to put it on the calendar for him. Then ask him when he wants to plan vacation this year so you can mark that as well. That way it looks like you are just organizing your year!

  • Talk to him about why he isn't doing it. Maybe he feels he will be less masculine or have trouble in bed. You could offer to go to a urologist with him just to discuss. No pressure. If he just isn't ready then that's his right.
