My Vasectomy will be 26 years old this year. I had the Surgery done in 1986. I was 29 years old at the time.

I first considered a Vasectomy when I was 22 years old. A Friend of mine once told me, "If you believe something about yourself is true, wait 7 years. If you still believe the same way after 7 years, you'll probably believe that way for the Rest of Your Life". So, I waited until I was 29 years of age and decided to have a Vasectomy.

Even though I usually didn't do this, I asked God for a sign. I got an extra Paycheck, soon thereafter, and the Paycheck was $25 more than the amount to buy a Vasectomy. So, I took this as a sign.

I had also recently struck up a Friendship with a Urologist at the Hospital where I worked at the time. We liked to talk Baseball. I went to visit him at his Office. He was hesitant to perform a Vasectomy on someone as Young as me who had never Fathered a Child. I said, "Look, Doc- I came to you because I trust and like you. But if you won't perform the Vasectomy on me, I'll go find a Surgeon who will".

So, Dr. D performed the Vasectomy on me as we talked Baseball.

I've never regretted My Decision.

Okay. I'm open for Questions and Comments. Anything you want to say or ask, feel free to respond to this Thread.

I look forward to discussing My Vasectomy with you.

Sincerely,

Davey (Sunkist) Do

Well. . . Davey (Sunkist) Do . . . I truly believe that this is one of the most original threads that has crossed these tired eyes of mine! LOL!

Amy and I are without children, too. Yea, at one point in our marriage, we tried to start a family. And yes, it was sad to find out that I could not "father" a child. But in the bigger picture, we're quite happy with our lives. We both believe that this "happiness" does involve not having children. Although I KNOW that there are a lot of wonderful things associated with being a parent, we really do enjoy our freedom!

Here's to vasectomies and to zero sperm counts! :cheers:

Also sincerely. . . . but with much chuckling . . . :lol2:

It would seem that some have Regretted the Decision that they had Children. I cannot count the Number of Times over the years I've heard some Parent say, something like, "I love My Children, but if I had it to do over again..."

I can't recall ever hearing anyone regretting The Decision not to have Children.

Try having a child, and she then dies, age 22. I don't regret having her, just not being there for her when she needed me.

I now have 3 adopted girls [now women] whom I love to pieces.

That's sad to read, bushambo. I can't even begin to image what it is like for a parent to lose a child (of any age). Such loss goes way beyond what words can describe.

Those three adopted girls that you have. . . . I'm sure were a gift and a Blessing both to you and to them. I greatly admire all parents who "love to pieces" their children.

Peace.

regrets are toxic to our souls.:twocents:

what i really wanted to post though, is you'd make an awesome dad.

just.awesome...this, i know as truth.

i remember when ed had his vasectomy...

without conferring with me - i was upset.

anyways...

i went to pick him up at hospital, and found him walking home.

anesthetic obviously still effective.

they had told him to wear tight underwear and apply ice.

he didn't listen, and he swelled to the size of an elephant.

he hurt so badly.:lol2:

oh well.*shrugs*

(singing, "memorrrrieeeessss"...)

I have. Remarriage in his 40's to a woman 10 years younger who wanted children. He had a reverse-vasectomy. It didn't work. I'm kind of amazed their marriage has lasted (so far).

That kind of surgery is pretty darn popular. You must not run in those circles Davey. :coollook:

Reverse tubals are common as well.

Have never regretted our decision to have children (they are now 21 and 23).

However, we were married 14 years before we had our first, so we were older parents.

That said, I believe one makes one's own happiness/contentedness, whatever the context (childless, child-full, married or single).

:)

We just had a vasectomy discussion with a good friend tonite at a restaurant.

Got the whole description, from viewing the video the night before ("we made a party of it, we two couples, while the kids played outside. Had snacks . . ." :D :D)

to

tearing a napkin in the middle and showing two knuckles through the hole "Now, this is what it looked like: the sterile surgical towels around, and . . ." :eek: :eek:

to

"that afternoon I drove my tractor around, a bag of frozen peas at my groin."

:lol2:

(I guess ya had to be there, ---- tonight, I mean, not at the very event!!! :eek: ---- but we thought it was hilarious!)
