The total cost of a vasectomy is €450. This is the total inclusive cost including the semen analysis.http://www.elmwood.ie/services/vasectomy/vasectomy

I think it's time I get this done really. I've been thinking about it on and off for the last 2 years or so, but I've decided that at 44 and with a 7 year old son already, I'm quite happy never to have anymore.

I was going to get it done in that place in Clane as its conveniently between work and home, but it seems they've changed doctor? I see mixed comments here in the last few pages.. Anything recent?

Then there's the doctor in Dublin referenced above which would be fine too, but I have a practical question...

Can you drive home afterwards? I wouldn't really have anyone to chauffer me home. I drive an automatic if that makes any difference though. Alternatively, I could bus it but 2 hours on a bus after getting it done doesn't sound like fun.

Thanks for any feedback

You be grand to drive afterward they only numb the area take 15 min the off you go. You will be sore once the anisteitic wears off but you probably be home by then. I had mine done almost 3 years ago at 31 at morehampton clinic in donnybrook booked it here http://vasectomy.ie/ never had anyajor problems after the first few days

snipped
Yes indeed there are an awful lot of posts on this thread simply about possible pain and discomfort. However there is another angle that is not talked about too much here.....loss of libido.

Got mine done, fairly simple procedure and went back for the test, all good. Went back to the sex life after a little break and of course she was delighted.. no more pills. After a few months started to struggle with the libido, went back to the doctor and told him. He said don`t worry its all in your head, we can help with that and prescribed viagra. Major reaction to Viagra, headaches, red face, feels like booming blood pressure so I went back again to the doctor. So he changed me to Cialis, that was fine and then I tried to come off it and it started letting me down again. Now my wife is getting really frustrated with it, telling me the amount of work she has to do to get me going is not fair and she can`t be arsed with it sometimes.Now its causing issues between us and really I wish I had stuck with no vasectomy. Anyone else struggle with this?

Jesus lads I came in here to ask if there’s tax relief (med expenses) for my upcoming snip. Wish I hadn’t bothered now based on the two posts above!

Been thinking about getting it done for a while now. Have two beautiful children that I love more than life itself however I don't think they will be having another sibling. People seem to be recommending McCormick in Dublin CC and that's who I'm thinking of going with, I've a couple or questions for those that have had it.

1) is it simply a matter of ringing them and booking an appointment or is there a requirement for a pre-op meeting?

2) how soon could one get an appointment?

3) are you ok to drive directly afterwards?

4) says on the website about shaving ones sac before hand, I trim anyway but never wet shave, would complete hairlessness be required?

I was waiting 3 days. Depends on clinic and how busy they are. Guy I went to only does the snip one day a week.

I did no special prep, wasn't asked to. I have been told that they don't want you to shave in case a nick causes an infection or irritation.

I went to McCormick in Dublin. Had it done at the very start of this year.

He was able to give me an appointment within a week or so, but I opted for a longer wait due to Christmas. Pre-op discussion over the phone, and then another one on the day. He was also very responsive to emails with queries.

I queried the shave in advance. Was told "about 2 inches above your penis, whatever’s at the side of your penis and underneath it and the front of your scrotum".

In my opinion, it was as close to painless as you could hope for. There is initially 2 little flicks, very slight, equivalent to maybe gently snapping an elastic band on your wrist. After that, it's a spray on aesthetic, and then you feel absolutely nothing in the way of pain. You might feel some tugging as he takes the tubes out to do the procedure, but no pain.
