Anyone with personal thoughts? I have heard negative things in re: to this and long term issues (w/ sperm entering the bloodstream and the body fighting them as foreign (since they're not supposed to be in your bloodstream like that) and causing back pain and such).<br><br>
Any books you suggest? DH and I are researching... I can't do surgeries or hormones or IUDs or anything and we are for-sure finished having children. We want to make a good, healthy choice that keeps us securely done w/ babies <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">. We are both happy with this choice, we love our family as it's full now. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love">

This is the type of thing I'm talking about...<br>
Hmmm....<br><div style="margin:20px;margin-top:5px;">
<div class="smallfont" style="margin-bottom:2px;">Quote:</div>
<table border="0" cellpadding="6" cellspacing="0" width="99%"><tr><td class="alt2" style="border:1px inset;">While the testes continue to produce sperm after a vasectomy, the sperm cells may often come into contact with immune cells in the body, breaking the barriers that normally separate these two cells. The development of anti-sperm antibodies is responsible for causing immune reactions in the body of the patient which could eventually lead to other diseases such as multiple sclerosis and rheumatoid arthritis.</td>

My husband had it done in Dec. and he still has pain from it. I really regret talking him into it now. I don't know what we would do, I guess a tubal, but I think that has similar problems for women. There are no easy answers.<br><br>
I believe the way they used to do vasectomies, where they did not cauterize the tubes, was better. Closing the vas defrens (sp?) creates a build up of sperm that can cause the tube to burst. I think that's what keeps happening to my husband.
