Vasectomy opinions


DeLaMunte

Recommended Posts

I'm in my late 40s and I'm thinking to have a vasectomy ... 

I did my research online already, but I would like to hear opinions from the forum members who already had it ,,,, did you have any unpleasant side-effects ? Do you regret having it ?

I understood that it shouldn't have any effect on testosterone levels nor on the ability to perform in bed. 

Thank you everyone !

I have not had any issues.

It was done with a local, so it is pretty uncomfortable having a surgeon do his work on your tackle for 40 min & unfortunately there don't seem to be any pretty young ladies doing that work - although I guess that could have it's own issues! :)

All up a little tender for a month or so but that the worst of it - as you mentioned it has no impact on T levels or performance.

No regrets at all.

Exactly the same for me at 43, now 71 and no regrets. After 12 happy years mongering in Pattaya  I now have a much younger partner for the last 5 and am pleased to report that everything is working well. A bonus is that she doesn't have to worry about birth control and our love life can be as spontaneous as we want. With the p4p scene tho it is worth remembering that although it may encourage spontaneous sex, it doesn't remove the risk of any STD.

Anyone know whether in the UK the NHS will do if you haven't had children?

Did mine a month ago at Bangkok Pattaya Hospital.

Would recommend, with the added bonus that one of the two nurses present was an absolute stunner. (Not that you're much able to handle stunners at that precise moment, what with all your junk (literally) hanging out.

Some discomfort for the first week but now pretty much back to normal after a month and mechanically all seems in good working order.

Re Scuba's NHS question: I think it depends on your age. No problem if you're 50+, more tricky if you're 30.

During my pre-op (?) research, I also discovered that the urologist at Pattaya International Hospital goes by the unlikely name of Dr. Supanut. [emoji23]

PIH is also a bit cheaper than BPH, but hey, my nuts deserve the best.

I had mine done on the NHS. I had had children at that time but I'm sure they'd do it for free if you wanted to but they might want to make sure you're completely sure first. It's difficult to reverse, especially after several years and you'd have to pay for each attempt (£2000 a time) I had mine done under local. Not painful at all. back at work 2 days after. To be totally upfront and honest, I had it done so that I could have bareback sex with a woman I'd met and because I didn't want to be 'caught' out and be made to be responsible for another child. Too many of my friends at the time had girlfriends who'd got pregnant by mistake (!) even though they were on the pill (yeah, right) I'm afraid a woman's clock starts ticking in her 30's and some get desperate to have children and catch a man in the process.

On the problem side of vasectomies; I was told by the doctor that it very slightly increases your risk of testicular cancer, but I was not told, until years later, maybe because they didn't know when I had it done that.....see next post

It is a significant increase of the chance of aggressive prostate cancer. I had a vasectomy and got it. If I could undo that I would.

it can cause immune system problems. I didn't find this out until I had a liver problem and was lucky enough to be seen by one of the UK's leading immune system specialists. Basically, the body will still produce sperm, but of course, nothing happens to it - it stays there and is 're-processed' by the body. Sometimes, and this was in my case, the immune system mistakes your sperm for an 'invader' and produces white blood cells to deal with it. The trouble is, once this has kicked in, it doesn't stop. White blood cells are dealt with by the liver, which in my case was working overtime, becoming enlarged and making me feel exhausted. 

Before having a vasectomy discuss this possibility with your doctor. If they laugh it off it means they don't know enough and think again. It can be dealt with, as mine was, but only if your doctor accepts this scenario. They're not going to help you if they don't. Oh and these symptoms don't appear straight away. It can take 5 - 10 years to appear.

I had mine done at the age of 27, I do not regret it and no problems performing.

How 'significant'? What's the stats? In terms of numbers of men getting prostate cancer overall out of the total population and the numbers getting it who have had a vasectomy. I was told it's like filling Wembley and having one person getting prostate cancer.

I do believe though that compared to fertility treatments given to women when it comes to men the NHS are far less explicit about the side-effects. We're men, we don't matter as much.

This article says it's a 20% greater chance. https://well.blogs.nytimes.com/2014/07/17/a-vasectomy-may-increase-prostate-cancer-risk/

But googling it again, I see there are mixed opinions and studies.

Good info, i think I'll give a vasectomy a miss

Yes, if you don't need one, why take the risk. You might not be told about them all anyway. For me, if I had a regular partner and didn't want any more children, I would try to persuade her to have a hysterectomy or if she was old not bother at all or I'd be tempted to leave her. I just don't trust women when they say, "I don't want children"

They're always difficult to interpret, statistics, aren't they? And even then there'll be other studies which disagree with the findings. The question really is, 'Why should a vasectomy lead to someone getting prostate cancer?' I can't see the connection, to be honest.

A vasectomy stops sperm from entering the prostate. I don't know if it does anything else that affects the prostate. Probably should ask someone in the field.

How old are you and how's your PSA?

I have been told Cabbage and Condoms restaurant fame (Bangkok Branch) offers discounted operations. Apparently the owner is a rich Thai spreading the responsibility message.! Would be interested to know if any Farangs has taken up the offer.

I wasn't aware of this, im mid 30's and considering freezing the lads and if the need arises going down that road to avoid any potentially costly exercises.

whats the deal with trickyness? I thought it was only difficult if you want it reverses, tricky, although possible.

I would take the male pill if it was available. Still being developed i think. There is however a new temporary vasectomy, from memory its a form of gel that blocks the pipe and can be reversed easily. Not very technical but approximately correct

I just meant that some places are more reluctant to snip younger guys, esp. if they don't have kids.

Are you sure? I thought that sperm and semen went past the prostate not through it.

Had mine done 36 years ago, so I'd have been in my late 20's. I've had zero bad effects from it, and zero regrets. I used it as an excuse to lounge around a couple of days, but that was It for discomfort. Then as now, I didn't want any unexpected or unknown little 'Garzan's' running around. With that being my Desire, it is also my responsibility to make sure that's the outcome. My biased opinion is I don't have much good to say about fecking assholes who shirk their reproductive responsibilities. You want to make babies, great. You don't want to make babies, man-up Buckwheat..Deadbeat dads are a carbuncle on the ass of society. I also didn't want to depend on 'don't worry honey, I take medicine for no baby.' Since it's a simple and easy outpatient procedure for men, and any loss of male power is all in the big head, it seems like it ought to be an easy decision. :-)

Opinions on anonymous social forums are all well and good, but not something you should trust for medical advice. Go see your G.P. and have a chat. :-)
