Okay, this is going to be absolutely crazy, but... DS is 8.5 months old, he is my 2nd child. After he was born I had PPD pretty badly and insisted that DH get a vasectomy (before he realized I had PPD, otherwise I'm sure he would have said not yet). We had agreed before we even began to have children that when we were done, he'd get cut, so that wasn't a huge issue. But since "getting better" for lack of a better term, from the PPD, I am really heartbroken by this choice. I just always thought we'd have more than 2 children, and although I love my kiddos more than anything else, I just don't feel "done." I talked to DH about a month ago, and we only very briefly discussed a vasectomy reversal (mostly we discussed just being content with out two healthy, happy children). And I thought I was okay with just 2 after this talk...for about 24 hours. And it's like each day it gets more difficult to accept, even though I keep telling myself over and over that it's okay, and that eventuallly I will "get over it."
So, does anyone know much about vasectomy reversal. DH is significantly older than me - 41. What's the likelihood of it even working? DH is worried about the pain. He didn't think the actual V was too bad, but is afraid the reversal would be. And I don't think insurance covers having it reversed, so that's another issue.
If anyone has any insight on this, I'd appreciate it. Or maybe I should just be happy that I'm blessed with two beautiful, healthy babes and let it go. It's just rough. And because DH is much older, I don't want to wait forever if we do want to have more...agh.
