This is, for the most part, a very benign and painless procedure. Most people I know that have had it do it on a friday and they are back at work monday without issues. Get it done!
This discussion is popping up everywhere even at the neighbourhood parties with all the neighbourhood wives.
My answer to that is:
As long as the parts in question do not get their proper workout that I find adequate there will be no snipping no matter how easy it is.
This way I can keep doing my workouts and stay on the bike and the wife does not have to make promises that we both know she will not keep. (That boy-friend of her must be talented....need to figure out how he will start taking care of the kids too)

You don't know the half of it... next stop is Newport, Rhode Island!
At least it's not until after this racing season.
Two main points: were your tightest bibs shorts over a pair of snug underwear with all sorts of little ice packs in there. Frozen peas are generally recommended but pretty damn bulky. You can find little moldable ice packs that are meant for lunch boxes -- they are great. The urologist will tell you just a pair of snug underwear. That is not enough support. You don't want your boys moving AT ALL. Trust me. As cyclists, we have access to much better compression/support than pretty much any other person on the planet. Second point: do NOT skip your semen analysis x 2. Do it, don't be lazy. Do it. Why? I know 2 guys that both have an "oops!" child conceived after their vasectomy b/c they did not do both checks (usually 12 weeks and 14 weeks later)
It's really not too bad and considering that our wives pushed out a few kids, is a very nice/sacrificial/brave way to "take one for the team".

A piecing through your nose is an even simpler procedure.
But seriously, maybe because it's irreversible?
That is what makes it great: IRREVERSABLE!!
If your wife goes off the pill her libido will probably improve.
Have someone drive you home from the procedure. Driving a manual transmission car home was not a good idea.
The doctor was a urologist who thinks that men should not ride bicycles. When he found out I am a bike racer his manner got more abrupt. For the procedure he asked if he could bring in a doctor he was training- who turned out to be an attractive woman with a sexy Australian accent. That was ok with me but kind of wierd. Then he wanted to set up some sort of barrier so I would not be able to see what was going on, and I had a problem with that. I prevailed but I think my procedure was more painful than normal as a result.
I was uncomfortable for 5 days afterwards and stayed off the bike until day 10 for the 30 minute commute to work and back. A little tender sitting on the saddle initially but 100% OK after a few more days. The incision was relatively small (<1cm) and healed quickly. No problems resuming training and increasing intensity.
Thanks to all for the advice.

Keep your options open I say. You never know.
And time off the bike for blowing up the ammo cache? No thanks!!
