  • Hub just had it done in is great! We have enough children, the youngest is 7 months, and it was easy, took minutes, recovery was simple, and apparently, sex is even better for him. Just an easy thing to get done without the complications that can befall a woman getting a tubal..

  • My husband had his done almost 6 years ago. It was a piece of cake and one of the best things we've ever done!

  • My husband offered to have it done and we love it! He didn't want me to have to go through any other type of surgery after we had our son and he read up on it and knew it wouldn't be bad and it wasn't..

  • my hubs had his done... done on friday and back to work Monday....
    it is easier, safer and quicker for them to get it done... they are ini and out with in about 30 mins... usually done right there in the dr office, and no down time for them....

    for us to get sterilized, there are so many risk involved it is not worth it!

  • My ex had it done. I think its alot easier then having doctor cut you open to tie your tubes. If hes willing to do it then go for it.

  • Hubs had it done 11 years ago. It was out patient "surgery" done in the urologist office. Our local urologist wouldn't do it until the youngest child was at least 2 years old (beyond the SIDS ages).

    Best thing we could have done EVER!!!

  • Completely agree with you, but my hubby is dragging his feet, doesn't like the idea of a knife near his boy parts. This is good info, I will have to tell hubby.

  • We did it . . . . wasn't bad at all according to my husband. Easy as pie. :)

  • My husband had one 13 years ago.  It was quick, easy and relatively painless with no complications.
