Report: Contraception Isn’t Just For Women

This is how to be an ally, gents:

More men seeking vasectomies after Supreme Court overturns Roe v. Wade

More men are seeking to get vasectomies as states move to ban or restrict abortionsfollowing the Supreme Court’s ruling on Roe v. Wade, doctors said. At one Florida clinic, a urologist told CBS News he found out about the ruling through the sheer number of phone calls coming into his clinic that day.

From his office near Tampa, Dr. Doug Stein calls patients who are under the age of 30 or do not have children to discuss whether they are 100% sure they want a vasectomy. He said he’s making those calls more often.

“We generally see about 12% in our practice, men who are child-free. And then we generally see about 12% of men who are under the age of 30. But the number of both, young and child-free, nearly doubled,” he said.

The two-doctor practice performs six vasectomies an hour most days.

There’s more to birth control than abortions, and it’s good to see men stepping up. Amiright, ladies and laddies?

You might be a dude who never wanted children, or maybe you’re already a dad to the most wonderful kid(s) in world history and you don’t want to risk the next one being an asshole like Elon Musk or another Lord Damp Nut (shudders). Why chance it?

  1. I was snipped in 1982, two years after my second daughter was born. There was pain, because my doctor took out an additional 1/4 inch of the vas deferens to prevent them growing back together. I kept bags of frozen veggies to sit on. We ate lots of peas and corn for a couple of weeks. The process was an outpatient process in the doctor’s office, and my job’s health insurance ate the entire cost.

    Not that I don’t love all the kids, 3 on my own and one that was my wife’s, I do, but it would have been a good idea maybe after the first one.

    I’ve never had one, and have two wonderful kids (err adults). And at my age I don’t expect to get one, but in case you were wondering. “Almost all vasectomies can be reversed. However, this doesn’t guarantee success in conceiving a child. Vasectomy reversal can be attempted even if several years have passed since the original vasectomy — but the longer it has been, the less likely it is that the reversal will work.” Per the Mayo Clinic…

    After good friends got married in 1989 she forced him to get one. No snip, no sex. She didn’t want to go through life on birth control. It’s worked out, they’re still together.

    Anecdotally- a few of my younger friends have reported that the man in their life has had the snip done in the last year. They weren’t waiting for the illegitimate SCOTUS to act before taking care of business. Kudos to those male mates getting the snip to accommodate their partners. I have been grateful these last 25 years that my guy got his V. It is a tangible way to show you care.
