We would just consider this an excuse and have heard it in our office once or twice. There is nothing about a vasectomy that requires you to read a 100-page study manual to figure out. You just have to relax, think about something that makes you happy and before you know it, the procedure is done. No overnight stay, no significantly extra days off work and no getting out of the family event you were trying to avoid. Plus, you don’t have to work on planning an alibi for why you need to spend so much time on the couch in sweat pants with ice on your crotch. We’ve got you covered on that one.
