About My Vasectomy

What I can tell you about my vasectomy is why I decided to get mine, what it was like and shy it was one of the best decisions of my life.

Vasectomy is Defined as -

A surgical procedure for male sterilization and/or permanent contraception. During the procedure, the male vas deferens are severed and then tied/sealed in a manner so as to prevent sperm from entering into the seminal stream (ejaculate) and thereby prevent fertilization.

About My Vasectomy - Reasons Why I Did It

I was 36 years old, a little over 15 years ago. My youngest child had turned one. My other child was five. I really wanted to get out of the government job I was in and find something more rewarding and more lucrative. I wanted an exciting job where I actually did something I could be proud of instead of sitting around all the time pretending to work or pretending my job was needed.

I also wanted a different job so we could move away from the big city.

I was very concerned about the health insurance somewhere else or the medical leave available in the types of places I wanted to work.

I had two other major reasons for thinking about a vasectomy.

The first reason was that my wife had nearly died from complications after the delivery of our first child. The doctor then had her on bed rest for six months prior to the birth of our second child. She did not have children easily.

This was a tremendous burden on both of us. But mostly me. She was on bed rest after all. I had a full-time job and a three-year old boy to take care of, plus a pregnant woman lying around all day.

Whenever someone heard about our situation they only talked about my wife and how hard it must have been for her to be on bed rest. This still irritates me. I was the one doing most of the work to keep our second unborn child alive. She was just on bed rest.

Fathers rarely get any credit for doing whatever it takes to care for your family.

The second reason was that two children were enough for me.Two is a lot in the modern world.
