    Good point. I think we had one for March Madness this year too... I'd have to go back and look.

    It's bi-annual now. Once before March Madness, once to prepare for football season.

    Ditto here. I acutally have a couple of friends that won't get one now, after hearing what I went through. But, I am the exception, not the norm. I have several friends that had no issue at all, I was just the unlucky 1 in 10,000.

    Mine was very uneventful. I would highly recommend the jock for the 1st 3 days. I got tired of it after day 2 and went back to boxer briefs. I lasted about an hour and went and put the jock back on. I was fine after that.

    Only thing significantly interesting I can add to this was my wife, on the day I tested "negative", sent the kids to our friends house and we celebrated when I got home. I highly recommend it.

    Go to a Urologist, go for no-scalpel, sit on some peas, take the pain meds, wear the jock strap it makes it so much better, take it easy for a couple days even if you think you're a-ok.

    As stated previously, take it easy for a couple of days and rotate your bags of frozen veggies. The worst part for me was how nervous I got shaving the boys.

    Ehh, I had to get rid of the jock after a day..couldn't handle the constriction, but I did go to briefs rather than boxers.

    Probably just on account of your massive dong. I liked having everything tucked up all neat and tidy.

    Give them a semen sample and they test it for sperm. Repeat until it comes back negative.

    Had it done a couple weeks ago. Pain is overblown. I had the prescription filled but didn't use it. Only time I had pain is when I didn't use ice. If you're a side sleeper, I'd recommend a body pillow or pillow between your legs.

    As far as getting back into your "routine" I was told 4 weeks because of the risk of infection. I didn't do the scalpelless procedure though so it may be less with that.

    Echo this... Did scalpel-less and other than trying to start lifting a few days too early it was easy. Best advice - if doc says to take it easy for 1 week, give the boys 1 week.

    So my question is did you not know that you were done having kids on the last C section? Next child we have my wife will have to have a scheduled C section and we know we are done after that child so she agreed just to have her tubes tied while they are already in there and spare me the vasectomy because there is no point in both of us getting a medical procedure done if they already have to have her go under the knife and are right there to do it. I realize not everyone knows if they are done yet or knows they will have C section for their last child

    I'll give the argument against it. My friend's ex was on the pill with the back to back rotation without placebo; thus, no period. He got snipped, she went off the pill. Periods started back up along with the enormous mood swings that came with it. She refused to go back on the pill that helped regulate her mood changes that came with the cycle because she didn't think she had any changes. Again, she's now his ex, and for very good reason.

    Probably the most uncomfortable thing about the whole experience was handing that cup to that old nurse. Luckily some places they give you the sample cup and let you fill it at home and then bring it in. Mrs. Velo didn't help by standing outside the bathroom door and asking me what I was doing in there, chuckling the whole time.
