tubes tied/vasectomy

So if either of you are fixed who got it done and why?

my SO finally went to get the vasectomy. After 3 kids we were done and I felt its his turn I had 3 kids. So he reluctantly agreed and finally did it:) I am amazed though how many men refuse.

My reason for him doing is because I had 3 kids and its simplier procedure. altho now they do have an out patient one for women.Not sure much about that though!

  • My husband will get the big V done. It isn't done yet but we already decided it will be him.

  • I got my tubes tied a few months ago. Really not much of a big deal. I was home an hour after I got out of surgery. My mom had a miscarriage after me, dad had a vasectomy and it obvioiusly didn't work so I don't trust it.

  • I had my tubes tied after my second child was born because she was a c-section. Had she been vaginal it would have been DH getting snipped. This decision was made before I got PG with the second. It made since for me to be the one to get tied if I was already open. It made more sonce for him to get sniped if it was vaginal because it is less invasive and I have a very physical job.

  • I plan to get my tubes tied because if he ever trades me in for a younger model I want to be able to hope he has to change diapers again!

  • I had a tubal after my third. I had a c-section and had it done right there. I would have had my husband do it, but I wanted a c-section anyway so it just worked out.

  • I had a tubal after my last child was born 2 yrs ago. I was having a c/section so we figured it was easier since I was open and ready to go then having my husband go in for a V.

  • DH will most likely have the V.

  • ha ha so far most you women had your tubes tied! My hubby got snipped far less invasive than tubes tied but just proves the point of the post! Most women that get tunes tied its because their hubby will not do the deed! Altho if you have a csection that makes sense to have it done.
