It did suck, I feel sorry for him because he badly wanted it to work so he could 'help' and he felt I'd been through enough.
The snip was done by a very experienced specialist, it's just one of those things. It's a 1/2000 risk on the snip.
I felt I HAD to take charge of my own fertility after having an unplanned pregnancy pre snip. So when dh had issues I just went to the gp and they were supportive. I think we were so unlucky, I wouldn't put anyone off suggesting their partner had the snip.
If you find he is resistant or there is a long wait or weird nhs criteria - and you consider a sterilisation then pm me, i can share my experience of it x
Oh that's a shame for him but couldn't be helped, just very unlucky.
DH is booked in for March 3rd so not long to wait at all but the letter they sent to confirm his appointment says that they don't perform the procedure if you have a baby younger than 6 months old? Is that correct? I cant understand why the GP would have referred us in the first place if we are gonna turn up on the day and be refused?
Our gp referred Nathan and he turned up to the first appointment at 29years and 11 months and they wouldn't do it as GP had missed that policy was 30! He had to go back 2 months later which made us rage at the time.
I say even now I bet it would have worked if he had had it done that first time!
It's not on your DHs records the ages of the kids..... penny was less than 6 months at the time of the snip and that was the policy where we are too...
I had to take dh to his as they can't drive after and I had penny with me as penny was still only bf and we were away for a good few hours. Luckily it was a man doctor so he didn't really question her age.
Yeah I be already said we will have to lie about Baxters age. I have to take him too because he is BF so cant leave him...i might just do laps of the hospital until he calls me to say its done and i can go get him haha
