Impending snip

Cheers George. How long before you could realistically exercise? Especially how long until you could cycle?

Its not worry free…you can still get sexual transmitted infections etc

Self love on day 3. Full sex I think day 5

Not unless I cheat on my wife which I wasn’t planning to do


Not many women have replied, for obvious reasons I guess.

Am I the only person who found that it tasted and felt slightly different. I can certainly remember the difference when my ex-husband had his done. I have also had sex with a variety of snipped and non snipped men over the last year, since my divorce, and I have not done a detailed analysis but my impression is that I can tell the difference.

Of course, I could be forming my own bias.

Would you say it was better tasting before or after? Or just different?

Subtly different taste, neither better or worse.

I felt completely back to normal within two weeks but if you do heavy weight lifting, which I do, or things like cycling or contact sports you need to wait 4 weeks to be safe

Just as a little update since some of you, or your partners, were considering getting it done I can safe say 9 months after having it done and 6 months after getting the all clear that a vasectomy was a great decision and has improved our sex life.

Whatever method of contraception you are using this is better - as long as you’re done having kids.

We have more sex now than we’ve had since before we had kids and because we don’t need to worry it’s better too.

Honestly a great decision. If you’re done having children I can’t recommend it enough


I can only add to the positive experiences above.
All done o. The nhs and very simple. Slightly uncomfortable when they did the second side but I manned up obvs!
No real pain after just some swelling which was awkward at worst. Nuts were black for a week.
My gf kept wanting to have a look!
Cracked one out five days after and no probs.
The Dr did a proper job- cut cauterise and clip.

Such freedom now it’s done. Absolutely would recommend anyone thinking of it.

Thanks George. I had it 3 months ago. All ok now, but the long cycling a couple of weeks after we’re a mistake for sure!!

I am 4 weeks since mine, first 3 weeks i had a lot of bruising aroind my left testicle but now all feels fine and just working through clearing the pipes before sending my sample away for the all clear.

Had mine a couple years ago and no issues since. The worst part was that it was fine at a clinic where I work, and everyone knew why I walked out like John Wayne! Had a few knowing well meaning sniggers from colleagues!
