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

* I still ejaculate. My ejaculate didn't notably change in any way, including volume.
* I think they used some sort of tiny clips to close all the snipped and newly-open ends. Every blue moon, they're in an uncomfortable position; a little jiggle sets things right.
* Every partner I ever had after, for 17 years, has acted (somewhat understandably) like they won a contest they hadn't even entered on hearing about it.

@thraeryn So there's no mysterious pent-up feeling at all?

Maybe "blue balls" is really "blue prostate"...

@tully

Heh, nah. Granted, I'm so many years out from the procedure itself that my memory has gaps,

and it never felt (to the best of my recollection) that anything was "storing up", never felt that I had a decreased or "missing piece" orgasm; all was as expected in the weeks after
