There is no estimate about how many guys are "on the fence" about whether or not to go through with getting snipped. I bet it’s a ridiculously high number, maybe in the millions. I too was "on the fence" for well over a year and during that time my wife got pregnant with our third. Upon hearing this news I leapt "off the fence" very quickly, called my urologist and went and got snipped. Most guys are not well educated in Vasectomy 101. Plain and simple.
And, as a result the fence is packed with guys teetering from one edge to the other. One moment they swear they’re ready to do it and the next they are cowering in a corner.
The problem with this is that as time passes this behavior inevitably effects the marriage. Your wife may want you to have it done but your indecision and confusion about the procedure leaves you stuck in a rut, with a storm brewing on the horizon between the two of you.
My advice? Get off the fence and out the rut! Seek out information on the procedure, the pro’s and con’s. Talk to men and couples who have had this done, and find a good urologist who can give you all the clinical info you need. If 600,000 guys get this done each year, then you too can join them. Most of the pain is in your head anyway…and just think of the benefits after you get snipped.
"We all need encouragement if only to vasectomize ourselves. I think your purpose deserves praise and your book is of the highest merit. The need to ensure men procreate responsibly is far more civilized than leaving events to the chaos of selfishness, thoughtlessness, and theological roulette."
No more pregnancy fears and all the stress free sex you can physically handle! Not a bad deal for forty minutes on a table, a low co-pay, and 2 days on couch with your remote tethered to your hand. If you are like most people, you have probably not had sex when both parties were completely worry free. Besides those times you might have been trying to get pregnant (and that can be stressful) the rest of your life your wife (and you) has probably been stressed about getting pregnant, remembering to use birth control, and concerned about possible side effects.
"Real Men Get Snipped! Touches on something I see over and over again in my practice, a lack of education that equals a lack of sex in couples with children. There is an epidemic in our culture that no one is talking about sexless marriage as a result of fear of pregnancy. Hunter’s book looks at this subject in a lighthearted way and gives couples the facts about vasectomy that everyone should know."
