Moved to finland recently. Did my consultation today. a 15 minutes conversation and most of it was just fact checking etc. The urologist wanted to make sure i didt want to freeze my sperm but i have no interest in biological connection to a child if i ever raise a kid.

Appointment for snip booked, 2 weeks from now, friday 13th!!

I feel pretty good about it. Bit nervous of course. Decided never to have children in a big deal in some ways. Though I just really dont want any, and havent for a long time. 35 years old!

My partner hates taking pills because she HAS to take some pills each day for a medical issue, so i understand she wants to limit them.

I've used condoms my whole life..and i can not wait to stop doing that. I've disliked them in various intensities over the years. Once in a relationship where she was on the pill so we didnt use them, and i loved the sex more because of it! So heres hoping to that type of feeling again!

When I saw the thread notification I was half expecting a Black Friday deal

I've decided though that it's time to get it done as well. I've been humming and hawwing about it for a long time now and at 44 with a 7 year old, I think I'm done from that perspective. Plus any potential future partner would likely already have kids anyway, so that'll do me.

Just wanted to thank everyone for their feedback here and update with my experience.

In my mid 40’s with 3 kids, youngest is 10 and had wrestled with the idea for a couple of years as my wife and I knew we were done. Seeing the positive difference in my wife, mentally, emotionally and sexually in the last year since she stopped the pill convinced me that it was necessary now.

8 weeks post procedure done by Dr. McCormick and no issues. He explains everything including the possibility of complications and then gets to work. All done in about 15 minutes. Took advice given and lay up for a couple of days afterwards. No real pain on the day or since that required any medication. A little bit of tenderness/achiness for about 2-3 weeks in that you would be more careful in that area.

No issues with libido, sex etc. since and just waiting now for the all clear in a few weeks.

Really glad I went through with it now and hoping another positive experience convinces another undecided like myself to bite the bullet and go for it.

Got my operation done yesterday. About 45 minutes on the table. It was pretty much zero pain. Just a pinch from the injection.

Recuperating with my gf n friend. Yesterday felt a bit like someone hit you by accident in the nuts.
Today is more bruise or sharper but perfectly capable with a ibuprofen.

He gave me anti biotic too.
I'm very pleased overall. My scrotum looks a little different lol. Just pulled in a different way I guess because of stitches.

3 months I've to go give a sample to get the all clear.

Appreciate everyone who posted in the thread. It gave me good support in my decision making.

So this is day 3 post op.

All is ok so far. The pain has been more intense than expected. It kinda feels like when I stand up n straighten my torso that it pulls on something. Guess it will just take a bit of time to rejig some muscle memory sensations.
It's better every day. No more swelling today. Looks mostly back to normal.

About 4 doses of paracetamol 500mg each day. Today I expect 3 doses to manage.

I walked about 2km yesterday. Slowly but surely. I'll do that today too.

I masturbated this morning. Gently lol. It went well. I tried yesterday n got scared because it felt wrong in many ways. Today felt great n normal again. Delighted because I had a fear it might not feel good the same way.
So very pleased today everything seems to be working!

Hello everyone, sorry if I reply at an old thread. I didn't find any reply regarding what I was looking for.

I'm 24 and I'm living in Cork.

Anyone around my age have had any luck getting a vas while having no kids. And if so where did you go?

Thanks

I see Dr.McCormick comes highly recommended on here.
Whats the best way to make an appointment with him. Just call up and see when is available or via email?

Any idea of the waiting time for him?

vasectomyireland.ie is his website. Contact him through that and he'll answer queries over email or phone. I got an appointment very quickly. Think he offered me a slot a few days after I got in touch!

Yep just download the form from the Revenue website, or you can probably log in and do it online too.
