Chalk it up to the effects of the economy.....the DOW may being heading down, but overall Vasectomies are on the rise! There has been a good deal of chatter about this out there online and in the media. With the unemployment rate at 10% and money tighter than ever for most households, it seems that getting snipped is in vogue!
With the average cost of raising a kid from birth to age 18 around $250K, some couples are choosing to ditch the pills, condoms, IUD, and the push/pull/pray methods for something much cheaper and efficient.
Remember...a vasectomy is COVERED on most insurance plans. So for a nominal co-pay and 30 minutes on the doctor's table you can enjoy a lifetime of stress-free sex. The key for men is to get over their irrational fears about the procedure. And believe me, they are irrational.
So what the heck are you waiting for? Join the revolution and dump all other forms of birth control.....you will not regret it...
