O.K. I'm not a doctor but DH had a vasectomy about 7 years ago. What they do is numb the testicles. They make a tiny incision in the testicle and cut a small section of the tube that carries the sperm to the penis. The ends of the tube aresealed so that they can't grow back. The man is given some pain med, told to rest, ice the area. In about 2 weeks they are asked to bring in a semen sample to check for sperm. They are asked to do this 3 times and the couple is advised to use other birth control until after 3 samples are clear of sperm. Most doctors guarantee no babies if the man follows the instructions.
My hubby was sore for the first day, but after that he was fine.

My DH plans on doing this after our next child. Is his turn to handle the BC. I think vasectomies are far less invasive than a women having her tubes tied.
