- I want the snip. Would you go private or NHS?
Wow, thanks for so many quick responses. The reason i asked is one of my family members had an eye watering op about twenty years ago. I think i need to make an appointment to see a GP. Will i have difficulties getting the green light if i am 26? Already have one child and another due yesterday.Posted 8 years agonickcSubscriber

I went with my partner and had a "chat" with my GP, who quizzed us both about motives and so on. When he was happy, we scheduled to op, for just a couple of months later on. Same as you though, I was early 30's with 2 children, and long term partner.Posted 8 years ago
NHS, no problems there or down there. I happen to know a consultant urologist who said he wouldn't have it done because he's seen too many people with complications. Mind you, I've never met anyone who had a problem with it.
Not sure what else to do, the pill\hormone types caused problems for my partner and condoms can split.Posted 8 years agogrim168Member
Just get it done because you'll hear allsorts of shite on forums. It isn't that bad. I went nhs and ended up in a private hospital due to backlog. Bit of swelling and pain but not too much. Best advice I was given was take it easy for a couple of days. Don't forget you'll be really suffering and will need looking after 😉

I was done about a year ago. We looked into both and while I would have preferred private due partly due to a supposedly slightly better procedure (tiny incision / cauterisation as opposed to cut and tied) but mainly due to being able to get it done quickly and at a time to suit, ultimately £495 is £495. So I went to the GP, got quizzed about how serious I was, etc., and then she agreed to add me to the list. At which point she said that the local NHS Trust had decided to outsource the job to the same clinic I'd looked at spending £495 on! Only difference was a 3 month wait after which i got a letter asking me to ring and make an appt as if I was a paying punter.
Procedure was fine, a bit uncomfortable, but once you've lain naked from the waist down on a table while a nurse pulls your nuts through a hole in a sheet and paints them with antiseptic, you'd give anything to be out of there asap and without catching anyone's eye again.
To cover it all; post op took me about 4 weeks before I could cycle again but that was due to a minor wound infection which stopped the healing process, meaning I needed the wound cleaned right out and start the healing again after about 2 weeks. The actual nut discomfort was no big thing, fixed with Nurofen.

Ok , don't shag directly afterwards it was the most painful orgasm/experience i have ever had. Got on the bus after the surgery went home knobbed the wife to check everything still worked – arse. 9 months later wifes puking every morning and 2 kids in the same class. Long painful story short it's not 100%.DNA is a wonderful thingPosted 8 years agoCoyoteSubscriber
It stops your ability to produce, but takes 3 days for what is there already to go. I was advised to go gloved until after the sterility test to confirm it had worked.
And it's a permission slip to burp the worm as often as you want.
