Got an Answer?
I'm in Adelaide and my husband had one done a few months ago. We don't have private health cover, he didn't have to pay anything but did had to go on a waiting list for a while. He's been totally fine, took a day off to recover but said he didn't even feel that bad. Hasn't had any ongoing issues.
Husband has had his about 5 years ago some he claimed on private insurance but we have corporate cover so not sure if that makes a difference. Uncomfortable for a week and of course he thought he was dying but he survived 😂 and best thing for us. We were in early 40s with two kids and finished with our family. Reflecting back he could have done it earlier but I think it was a mental thing for him.
My hubby had one about 10 years ago. I'm in Perth too but I can't even remember where he had it done or how much it was. Initially he was uncomfortable and black & blue for a few days. I recall him laying in a cool bath with a pack of frozen peas over his balls 😂 We've had no issues since. Having a vasectomy was a no brainer for us as we have 5 kids and we were late 30's so we knew we were done. After we decided to do it, we had a chat to his doctor who gave us all the info we needed. Good luck xx
