OddOne,

Good points, well made.

I watched my (ex) husband's "procedure"; dead fascinating... wanted to make sure job done properly So to all you guys out there wondering.... it is not so much "snipped" as cauterized. It will be painful for a couple of days (like a kick in the cods, apparently) and it is recommended that no heavy work is undertaken i.e. desk duties. You will also need to "acquire" some supportive pants - you'll need all the support you can get. Other than that, you will spend a lot of time in the bath so that wieght can be taken off "things"!

Then, of course, there is the "testing" procedure to make sure that it has worked. You will be supplied with a couple of "receptacles" and, when full, these are sent off to the lab. Around a month later after two clear samples, you get a nice little letter.

Cheers
