My husband had a vasectomy in March and we are just now out of our "blues/regret" period. Even though we had discussed it at much length and KNEW we were doing what was best for our family, we still had that period of questioning.
I wanted to start this thread to support those going through the blues, share information for those thinking about vasectomy and also just to see what others experienced.
My husband and I decided on Vasectomy after two difficult but successful pregnancies and 5 miscarriages. My health and wellbeing would have been on the line if we decided to try again. Plus, we LOVE having the opportunity to have so much one on one time with our girls. We knew permanent birth control would be the best thing for us.
Even though we were in agreement that we both truly wanted the procedure, we felt sad and confused when it was done. I wish we had been prepared for that, but we didn't know to expect that. It's normal and it does pass with a little time and communication but it would have been good to know about.
After a few months of discussion and emotion we have realized it was just a normal phase we had to go through to feel at peace with our "baby years" coming to an end. We are very very happy with our family the way it is and I am very happy to know I don't have to worry about the difficulties pregnancy brought to me. In the end, it's all good
So what are/were some of your experiences?
