Unless your DH wants more kids (or wants the potential to have more kids) I think he should go and talk through his concerns over a vasectomy with a health professional. Honestly, it is far less invasive a procedure to be done. Thankfully my DH is also 1000% done having kids and was happy to take care of birth control given that I had carried and birthed our babies, and knowing that I can't take hormonal birth control. It was condoms forever, a vasectomy, or abstinence. They were our options cause there was no way I was having more kids.

I had mine tied after my last pregnancy. No, I didn't have any syndrome. I had no problems at all. Yes, I do recall having one or two heavy periods with associated pain but I saw that as part of being post partum.
I have yet to review any material that significantly proves TLS but that's not to say it doesn't exist. What I will say, though, is that I was not counselled prior to the operation nor warned of any side effects. The obstetrician simply handed me a form to sign and that was basically it.
That said, best decision I made and no regrets.

I've heard too many too many stories of failed vasectomy to not take care of it myself, so that's what I did.
In my opinion it's the best decision I've ever made.

I had my tubes tied feb 2012. It was the worst 3 years of my life, hormonal, weight gain, my periods went from being light and only 3 days tops to being heavy, painful and lasting up to 7 days with spotting on and off for the rest of the time. In March this year I had them reversed and I immediately felt free. AF has gone back to normal and all my hormonal issues are gone..

This came up last week in my 6 week appointment with my ob.
He offered tubes, mirena or mini pill. I'm really not happy with any of those. I told DH about them and we kinda figure that with 2 pregnancies, 2 csections and numerous complications that my body has been through enough. So it's his turn, he's happy to get the snip. We are both 100% done.

Anyone had their tubes tied?
We haven't spoken about it all in a while but we've also not DTD since DS was born 11 months ago!!! I did warn DH though that this would happen if he wasn't having the snip and I can't take the regular pill just yet.
