    Default Vasectomy ?

    Can anyone help with how much this procedure costs? We do not have PHI.

    Thanks.

    Sorry Mods didn't know where to put this...

    PHI is not helpful cos it's an out patient thing, under local anaesthetic in the doctor's rooms.
    Out of pocket was $300 for hubby 3 weeks ago.

    Depends where you live DHs was $180 in GP (country town, GPs here are also surgicaly trained) rooms under local, got some back from Medicare too!!!

    Speaking to circle of friends all the men who had it local had MUCH faster recovery, less brusing etc compared to those who went GA (sounds funny but most of our friends the DH has had it done!)

    Not to be judgemental, but just make sure you are 200% sure. There is other options. You only have to look through the assisted conception/ IVF threads to see how many people who were certain end up wanting reversals. You and your dh are both so young.

    No not judgmental! Thank you for your input!

    I had a horrible horrible labour, DD was an extremely sick baby, we do not want another. We have been thinking maybe for DD to have a sibling we will consider another when she is at school but really we both do not want another. But it's not something we will rush into. Thanks again Hun.
