vasectomy realities 🧵
Time to dispel myths and talk realities, because if you can do this, you should strongly consider it.
I got my vasectomy about 17y ago, and welcome other, more recent stories.
* Got mine through Planned Parenthood. Sliding scale.
* The woman on phone heard I "only" had one kid and did spend 45s asking if I was sure. Then I said I was, and that was that.
* Two Vicodin, and maybe a local? I was awake, then maybe napped?
* Waiting before & after is the longest bit

@thraeryn No, I had all 4 wisdom teeth pulled at the same time, so I was out with a general anasthetic. The procedure I had was the one in the video, vas deferens pulled out and cauterised one at a time. I found the feeling of having vas deferens pulled similar to having a teste squeezed, and it was my vas deferens that was sore after. Still, it wasn't debilitating or unbearable, I was just surprised after all the downplaying I had heard.
