Chest bump, dude!

What say we go over to the Men in Nursing forum, have a few beers, and share our stories?

Fact is, (heh heh heh) do you know how a guy with a vasectomy is like a Sunkist orange?

No, tell me!

I will say one thing. The recovery is a lot worse than they make it out to be.  Ouch.

A bag of frozen peas on my crotch was my friend that day, I'll tell ya for sure, amigo!

A guy with a vasectomy and a Sunkist orange have this in common: 

All juice and no seeds!

Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha!

From the post title, I though you were referring to 12 hour shifts as a form of birth control.

I thought the same thing

Nurse to patient after vasectomy "You can apply a bag of frozen peas to the area when you get home."

 

Patient "But I don't like peas."

I'm always mortified by the stupid crap I say once they dope me up. I don't remember (versed), but apparently I asked the nurse about alteration in discharge quantity etc.  Ack!

I have had the Nexplanon for 3 years. After the initial adjustment phase, I only have maybe one period a year. Like all other meds it has its side effects but never forgetting a pill, no monthly trips to the pharmacy and few to no periods are totally worth it.

@LostMyPen,RN how long did you have irregular periods before you started only having one. Is the one around the same time every year? Is it predictable when you’ll bleed?

Also I don’t have kids yet. Does the insertion of the IUD hurt? I’ve heard horror stories.

The first time, I think I had a vagal reaction when it went into the cervix. A little crampy, a some cold sweats, almost fainted. Maybe hurt a little. The pain was temporary. Took a few minutes for the vagal response to calm down. Second time was fine. A little pain, but not long lasting.

I would try the Nuvaring.  It's a combination contraceptive and you'll get the bleeding predictability you are enjoying now.  It's perfect for suppression.  My patients are a huge fan.

I love my nuvarings.  Super convenient. I'd never go back to having to remember to pop pills at a certain  time.
