Your wife will already be happy you are having the procedure done, so she should be willing to take pressure off you, so you can recover and lie around.
Man C: Vasectomies are painless and effective ways to prevent pregnancy.
Since I have a mostly sedentary job, it didn't affect things at all. What I do know, however, is that whatever it was [we were supposed to wait], we went early by a day. That first ejaculation, though, I remember being a bit of a moment — like I thought my balls would explode or something.
Rest assured, everything came out great, if you'll pardon the pun.
Man A: With our first and only child, my wife suffered terribly from hyperemesis gravidarum (recently made newsworthy via Kate Middleton).
From about three weeks until the seven-month mark, she was hopelessly ill.
However, after that period, I really enjoyed having sex with my wife without having to worry about condoms, birth control pills, or any other forms of contraception. Nothing life-altering happened as a result of waiting, and I'm having better sex than ever before. Man B: Nope, we decided we wanted two kids so after my second daughter was born, we scheduled it.
Man C: No, I think I had it done at the perfect time.
She couldn't keep anything down and I truly mean that.
She was in and out of hospital being put onto a drip because she was severely dehydrated (as well as underfed). Subsequently, the idea that she would ever put him through (potentially) seven months of completely restricted access to her was just out of the question. She hated using birth control because it screwed with her cycle and hormones. We had our perfect child and decided that he was well and truly good enough for us.
But I'm very much a mind-over-matter kind of person and it's worked out.
Both my wife and I would simply affirm, during moments of worry, "Don't be ridiculous. I am completely, 100 percent fine and everything is healing beautifully." And it did!
Man B: It wasn’t fun but wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be. It was never super painful, just a dull, consistent pain.
