We're due with our second child in a few weeks and our first is only 16 months old - obviously we haven't come up with a good form of birth control that works for us both. We're pretty sure that this is our last kid (and if not we're really interested in adopting), so DH proposed that he get himself 'fixed'. Does anyone have experience with this? pros/cons? Things we need to be thinking about before we take the plunge? Any advice would be greatly appreciated!Answer Question

My DH just got fixed Friday! I was so happy and so worried. He is still a little sore today and sick unto death of laying on his back BUT I had THREE babies one with NO DRUGS! I never had to have a CS so I didn't like the idea of going under when it was so much easier for him to do it, and I felt like I contributed enough to the childbearing he could contribute to the child prevention! I had to go with him to talk to the Dr. They wanted to know how long we had been married, how many kids we had? ect. He had to take 2 Valium an hour before and OMG he was SO funny! Also, he will not be sterile for about 2 months and you have to bring in samples for the lab to check to make sure he is. If you have any more questions just pm me!
Oh yeah....we don't have ins and our total cost was $650. $150 for dr visit. $500 for procedure.
