Tubal ligation vs Vasectomy - Page 2

post #21 of 23
Our V was $600. Insurance paid half. But even if it wasn't covered, I would consider it money well spent.

Heidi, I agree that in your shoes I'd cancel and do more research.

I had a tubal ligation done when I was 21 (no children, didn't want them). Having the tubal actually helped my cycles regulate and for a lot of years (8 or so) the cramping was way less (before I was on hormonal BC to try and regulate me and help with severe cramping). Mine was done as an out patient procedure and I was at the beach the next day with very minimal pain/discomfort. The only real complaint I had about the proicedure was that they tore my throat up with the tube the shove down it. My throat was sore for ever a week, and the first few days I had a very hard time convincing myself to swollow anything, including fluids, ugh.
Course, I'm schedualed to have a tubal ligation reversal on December 13th now that we've decided we do want children after all (eleven years after the tubal heh).
As far as which is better, I have no opinion, sorry... just wanted to share my experience with it for those of you having one or considering one...
Good luck with whatever you decide, I hope it goes as planned

The reason I decided to venture into this forum is that i'm thinking about doing the tubal instead of my husband doing a vasectomy. He does not feel "done".....I'm so done and i will never feel the need to have more children no matter what. He is considering be the one to get "fixed"......but i'm second guessing whether or not this is best. I have lots of time to research our options since i'm currently pregnant and will not be ready to undergo any procedure for at least a year (or two).
