My Vasectomy is a pictorial description of a guy’s vasectomey:

For various reasons, we decided to have a vasectomy in Feb 2001.
Pros: No more children, no more condoms, very convenient, a day trip out to clinic.
Cons: No more children, surgery, the possibility of complications, £250 (about $375).
There is a fair amount on the Web describing what happens, but there is very little to show you what actually happens.

Each page contains a Squeamish rating for the next page in the journal, which is an excellent idea.

I haven’t been able to steel myself for anything after the second page.

I’m in the Normal Weight range. This has been around for a long time; I wonder why it’s getting a lot of press lately.
