If you have all the kids you want – or don’t want any at all – maybe it’s time to put the focus back on your sex life. A little wild abandon is good for the soul…and the relationship.
Let’s be frank – not everyone having sex is in a committed relationship.
It’s okay to acknowledge that you don’t want any more children or want any children at all. That’s a personal decision every man gets to make. But if you are having sex on a more casual basis – you need to take action to avoid an unwanted pregnancy. Vasectomy puts that decision firmly in your control.
How Do Women Feel?
Every situation is different but here are some of the circumstances women face if they don’t want to become pregnant:
- Birth control pills work by manipulating women’s hormones. Studies show an increase in breast, cervical and liver cancer can be associated with them.
- Younger women who don’t want any more children (or any children at all) can be refused a tubal ligation by doctors who think they may regret the decision in the future.
- Getting your tubes tied does not eliminate the risk of pregnancy. Unfortunately, an ectopic pregnancy occurs in 1 out of 200 women, with higher risks for smokers.
- Women don’t like condoms any more than men do.
After difficult pregnancies or issues with postpartum depression, women may be anxious about getting pregnant again. The impact on their bodies during and after pregnancy can take a toll as well. If they stay home with the children, the disruption to their lifestyle or career can be extreme.
Associating sex with those experiences creates a natural avoidance reflex. We’re not talking about sexual dysfunction, if you are afraid of getting pregnant, it’s logical to avoid the cause.
For some couples, there are religious or cultural beliefs that affect decisions about contraception. For others, being able to provide for their children is the key factor in family planning.
And some couples aren’t interested in having kids at all.
None of these views are “wrong.” When it comes to family planning, you and your partner need to be on the same page. Vasectomy is one of the options you can take when you’re ready for permanent birth control.
Sex After Vasectomy
Finally, the good part! Almost every man who has had a vasectomy will tell you his sex life has improved dramatically. He can be spontaneous. When the mood hits, he can respond without any concern. He doesn’t depend on his partner to manage
her their birth control.
Vasectomy lets men take charge of their reproductive decisions. No worries about unplanned pregnancy.
Anxiety can be a factor in atypical arousal response or erectile dysfunction. Once that’s gone, sex is about pleasure and connection. Your mind is in tune with your body, encouraging desire, maintaining erection and achieving orgasm.
And it’s not just men who appreciate that. Women have long borne the responsibility for preventing unplanned pregnancies. The disruption to her life – and yours – can require difficult decisions that no couple wants to make.
