Is Your Husband Preparing for a Vasectomy? Here's What You Should Do

Show Him Your Support

If you and your husband have decided to go the vasectomy route, it is a very important decision that will affect the rest of your married lives. Moreover, it is definitely a big deal for your husband. He might be nervous or even feel overwhelmed. Although this is not a big or elaborate surgery and your doctor may have offered the required guidance and explained what to expect afterward, it is natural for your husband to feel anxious.

Make efforts to calm down his worrying lines even if he is all macho about disguising his nervousness. It would be a great idea to go on a quick getaway a few days before the surgery, to give him some time to unwind from the stress of the big day. All through this time, be by your husband's side, and offer him the much-needed love and support. All this will surely make a big difference and ease his anxiety. After all, it is a decision that lies in the best interests for the both of you!

Help Him with the Emotional Battle

“But, don’t you want to have more kids?”

If you have been open about the procedure and your friends and family know about the decision, your husband is bound to encounter a ton of curious minds. People who aren't aware of the specifics involved or those are simply nosy may be intrigued. Dozens of questions may pop up and your husband may be part of unsolicited interviews. Does he regret it? Did it hurt? Why did you do it? Were you forced to do it by your wife? People ask even if it doesn't concern them; you can't help it! Help your husband through this emotionally trying battle by being his constant, talking him through tough days, and being open in your communication. Encourage him to share his concerns with you and remind him that no matter what, you are by his side.

Post-Surgical Care

Your consulting urologist will give you instructions for post-surgical care. It is important that you involve yourself in the process by understanding from the doctor the clinical consequences of the vasectomy. Educate yourself by asking questions, even if they seem silly or basic to you, and read articles online (but be sure to check reputed sources such as WebMD or MayoClinic). While the recovery after a vasectomy is not always painful, and long-term complications are rare if any, the situation can vary from one individual to another. So, be attentive to your husband’s needs.

Bottom-line: whether it is just having a bag of frozen peas handy or preparing certain diets - if you know what to expect, you will be better equipped to support your husband post the surgery.
