My nuts are on the block...its taken nearly 5 months to get an initial consultation with the local urologist...who knows how long after that for the deed to be done.
The guy who did my 'procedure' had a phone number something like 1-800-LAS-TKID....he himself had 7 kids so I'm not sure about the validity of the procedure.

Is it not free in Ontario?

I don't remember paying anything in Alberta when I had mine done many years ago.

Never mind booking them in they say two bricks are as good as anything and some frozen peas for afters to kill the pain.

Please correct me if I am wrong, but I think that the Vasectomy is free on O.H.I.P.

Out of interest, does it work out the same price, regardless of how many packs you buy? ie, is there one dispensing fee, regardless of whether you get 1 months supply or 6 ? Or buy 5, get one free You know what I mean ....

Book a holiday to Mexico. You can buy all the regular BCPs, and most other medicines in pharmacies without a prescription. The same brands, etc.

Not to put anyone off but....when I was a student nurse, I saw a vas go very wrong. It all turned out OK but the pain that poor bloke through until an anaethetist turned up to knock him out, I'll never forget. No surgeon gonna mess with my balls for sure!!

Hubby has his done a couple of months ago and he was in and out of hosp within 20 mins and fine within 24 hrs. If you really don't want anymore kids then it's definitely the way to go!

Personally, I'd have loved another one or two and am quite broody at the mo but that's another thread!

Or if you don't want any, full stop. I was surprised how easy it was to convince both my GP and the urologist to emasculate me, despite being 30, unmarried and childless. I think I heard one of them muttering "Christ, we can't let you breed!".

Best way to go! I had no problems either being a childless 32 year old female in a new relationship (I think being a health professional helped!). At least that's one worry off my mind
Feel sorry for all the people who require contraception though. Are there no free family planning services in Canada at all?? What do the youngsters do?
