Why is his vasectomy my responsibility?

As I limped ‘blue balled’ to read a book in bed, I said to my husband in frustration, “You know if you were fixed, we could be having sex right now.” Equally as frustrated he replied, “What’s wrong with using a condom?” “I’m ovulating today and I don’t want to take any chances. The condom could break.”

Finally, The Male "Pill" Is THIS Close

Scientists haven't yet given up hope on the Holy Grail of a male birth control that can bridge the gap between boring, erection-threatening condoms and the semi-reversible vasectomy. The most recent developments in birth control for men involve injections that may have to be administered every other month.

Babies are expensive. And in the midst of what is turning out to be our worst economic crisis since the Great Depression, fewer people are choosing to have them. Thus, it should come as no surprise that abortions are on the rise.

Recession Causes Upswing In Vasectomies

According to The New York Times, out of work fathers are lining up for vasectomies in the same fervor as they do the unemployment insurance. The Southern California Planned Parenthood has reported a 30% increase in vasectomies, while an Upper East Side doctor in New York City says the financial world's demise has sent herds of fired New Yorkers into his office, upping his usual monthly snip snip quota from six to nine. Whie we're thrilled as ever men are taking control of this whole reproductive problem (it's almost as good as the whispers of male birth control pills) one would venture to guess men are choosing sterilization over condoms. Interesting. And also a point of concern for doctors who feel the urge to tell their eager Fathers No More that vasectomies, while reversable, aren't an operation that should be done in haste. As one frazzled, recently canned 30-year-old told The Times: "I wanted to get this done before the insurance ran out." As if he was talking about a teeth-cleaning or check-up.

The surgery involves making a small incision along the testicles. Doctors then place a tiny tube, about the size of a match, into the opening. The tube functions as a filter that blocks sperm, said Wu Weixiong, the director of Guangzhou Family Planning Technology Center. The surgery has already been patented, and the health department will promote it as soon as it is approved by the National Food and Drug Administration. Tango’s Take
