I am almost 49 and still have my period. Do you recommend that my husband gets a vasectomy?

The potential for birth issues increases after the age of 39 for the female. If you do not want to have other children and you don't want to use birth control on your part, I would advise a vasectomy. Google "McHugh Vasectomy Method" and you'll learn everything you'd want to know about the vasectomy process.

My doctor gave me the choice of using the traditional needle anesthesia or the no needle delivery with a MadaJet. He said he usually advises patients to use the needle delivery because he can assure them there will be no discomfort during the procedure but cannot make the same promise with the no needle approach. He seemed to imply that I can either feel the pain upfront or later - you decide. I'm not sure what type of anesthesia to choose. What do you recommend?

I have done tons of research and watched videos on vasectomies. Why doesn’t the AMA and AUA recommend laughing gas or general anasthesia? This looks extremely painful even when given something for anxiety! It turned me off to the whole procedure. Men feel pain too, especially in the most sensitive part of their body. In one video the doctor quipped “that’s my secret, the left side tells the right side what is about to happen.” He screamed out!
