Female sterilisation has a much higher failure rate than male so they're keener for the man to be done. Plus it is an easier procedure

Worst mistake of my life.

I had a TL in 2005. I went through 11 years of hell until my reversal last year. From the moment the first tube was cut everything changed.

~The first anxiety attack I ever had was on the operating table when the first tube was cut... I didn't realise until I thought back on the day the actual timing of the attack. I had many in the first 6 years post TL. They toned down in the last 5 years, but they never fully left until my reversal.
~Ovulation pain for the first 7 years would hit like a punch in the guts.
~Before, my periods always lasted about 10 days, but were 'normal' flow. After my TL my periods were so heavy I tried not to leave the house and physical activity was a no-no when I bled. By the last 8 months before my reversal I took 8 pills a day to slow the flow (because a Dr finally listened to me).
~Of course depression entered my life... there was so much more added to what I have listed above. But the listed were the worst.

Actually, the worst thing... No Dr would acknowledge my TL had anything to do with anything. All but one said there are no side effects to TL.

Since my reversal I am a new woman My periods are now on average 4 days of flow. Normal flow. Anxiety has left the building, so has depression. The brain fog I lived within has cleared too - my kids aren't happy I'm on the ball and they can't swifty me lol. And my libido is back, fiercely

Think long and hard before you commit to a TL. It near ruined my life... actually it did. For 11 years.

Im sorry you went through that. If you read above you will see my husband is having a vasectomy instead. Although, my periods have been very extreme for the last 16 years so they honestly couldn't get any worse!

Thanks for the input!

Ive had it done - in September. My dh had the snip but it failed and he has had a lot of irreversible issues after it. So I wasn't going to risk him having it redone - I also wouldn't trust it with what had happened previously, dh obviously heals a bit too well!

It was very straightforward, no issues and I had it done 8 weeks from when I was referred x

I had my tubes clamped - not cut.

All I would say that sucks about vascectomy is the 4 months after to get the all clear. And the stress the monthly testing after the first not clear result was pretty horrible.

Contraception just sucks

Argh that makes me lean more towards having my tubes done instead of DH having the snip! Such a hard choice!! Sorry it didn't work for your hubby A
