    Hubs will get the vasectomy.  He’d like for me to get my tubes tied for extra protection though.  That won’t be happening.

    After our daughter was born FH got a vasectomy. Sooooo much easier and less invasive for him to get it done in 30 minutes than for me to go under the knife.

    Most of the couples I know have had the male partner get a vasectomy instead of the female getting her tubes tied (it’s cheaper/less invasive/reversible/faster recovery/etc…).  Maybe that’s why you haven’t heard about it lately?

    You should add vasectomy to the list.  That’s what we’ll be doing.  Unless you are already getting a C-Section it’s must more invasive for a woman to have her tubes tied than for a man toget a vasectomy (and less reversable if you do change your mind).

    He’ll get a vasectomy. Like others said, it’s easier and less invasive. And he volunteered so I’m going to let him.

    Yeah Fiance and I were talking about this the other day. He’s skeptical about “the snip” but I’m pretty sure he’ll see the benefit, considering I’ll have had to do all the childbirth fun and am not planning on getting any EXTRA done. If I had a C-Section then I think I’d be like “Ok go ahead” but have him still get the vasectomy too, to be safe. Having your tubes tied apparently isn’t super effective. I have several friends who were born AFTER their mothers had their tubes tied. Whoops.

    We’re aiming for 2, and after we have them, Darling Husband will get a vasectomy. Like PPs, it’s cheaper, less invasive, and was his idea (helps that both his older brothers have had them).

    I think we will probably opt for a vasectomy. My good friend’s mom had her tubes tied and ended up with a “surprise” just shortly after..

    Just a note: no one should be getting a tubal ligation or a vasectomy with the idea that it is reversible birth control. Yes, it can be reversed in many cases- but NOT ALL.

    If you are 100% sure you do not want more children no matter what the circumstances, then go ahead. Otherwise look to another form of birth control.

    Oh, FYI too for everyone mentioning you can get pregnant after your tubes are tied- I did not know this until FH got his vasectomy and they told us this, but you can get pregnant 8-12 weeks after a vasectomy as well, because there is “leftover” material left in the vas deferens or wherever that must be safely ejaculated before you are given the all clear. So you have to use backup BC for the first few months anyhow until a new sample is given and examined and deemed to be free of impregnators. LOL.

    He’ll get a vasectomy. My aunt got pregnant after having had her tubes tied for 10yrs and I’d rather just not have that possiblity.

    When we are done have children, Darling Husband will get a vasectomy.  It’s cheaper, way less invasive and a much faster recovery.

    Plus – after I’ve gone through childbirth 2 or 3 times, it’ll be his turn!  I don’t want to have to go under the knife again! 🙂
