I am curious as to what other peoples opinions are on this issue.
Me and dh have always agreed on him getting the snip after we are finished having our kids.
I watched my mum go through the tubes tying and it was a very painful experience not to mention my lousy father leaving her to take a taxi to the hospital and back....
Anyhow since then, I had a boss who got the snip on his lunch break and came back to work fine with a slight limp
Also an uncle of mine had it done and went back to work the next day.
I have spoken to many men who thinks it's crazy as they dont want to lose their manhood!!!???
What the hell is wrong with these men! Lol
What will your choice be or what has your choice been??

Snip or tying the tubes?

When I am 100% sure we are finished our family, I will get my tubes tied. For me, it will be because I am sure I am finished.

DH had the snip last August He didn't want me to have to go thru a surgery and recovery that comes with a tubal, for us, it was easier for him to get the snip.
He has uncomfortable for a few days but nothing too bad. He did get an infection but anti-biotics cleared that up!

Whilst personally it is not something I am interested in, I saw awhile ago mention of a new form of permanent female sterilisation called a stop device. It was done as day surgery and required minimal recovery. It basically consisted of inserting a coiled spring (covered in a protective sheath) through the vagina and into the fallopian tube, then withdrawing the cover so that it sprung out and pushed into the tissue. Apparently the tube would scar badly and grow around the coil so there was no way an egg could pass. There was no option to reverse the procedure however, so one needed to be certain before undergoing it.
From what I saw, it seemed like a less invasive and more permanent alternative to tubal ligation for someone who was certain.

DH and i have had the conversation and still can't come to an agreement.
he flat out refuses to discuss getting the snip and im not keen on a tubal either.
luckily we still want another bubba so dont need to make any decisions yet

The snip for sure here!
Vasectomy can be done under local, taking around 2 minutes. Tubal ligation is major abdominal surgery under general.

DH was happy to get the snip but our circumstances changed and I had my tubes tied during my emergency section.
I vote man snip in "normal" circumstances.

Hubby was totally against having the snip unless I had my tubes tied as well. Until he actually found out what was involved in both procedures. Now he has decided he will just get the snip. His choice.

I'm looking at these methods
The Essure and Adiana procedures
Essure and Adiana are female sterilisation procedures that are less invasive than other methods. Both involve putting a tiny, flexible device (micro-insert) into each fallopian tube. The Essure device is a tiny coil of titanium and the Adiana device is small silicone plug about the size of a grain of rice. They make the body grow scar tissue around the inserts, blocking the fallopian tubes.
Some facts about the procedure include:
A gynaecologist who has had specialised further training can perform the procedure.
General anaesthetic isn’t needed, but can be used.
A flexible device called a hysteroscope is inserted through the cervix (entrance to the womb) and threaded along a fallopian tube. Once the hysteroscope is in place, the micro-insert is released. This is then repeated for the other fallopian tube.
The procedure usually takes less than 30 minutes.
Essure and Adiana are more than 99 per cent effective in preventing pregnancy.
