Frozen corn (niblets, not on the cob) and frozen peas work well. I was up and around in a day. It stung, but it was navy medicine. My favorite line from the doctor - "That shouldn't hurt. You shouldn't be feeling that." Quizzically, as if it were my fault.
I think the worst is the itching as all the hair grows back. I know, I know, TMI, but this thread is what it is. James brings up good points worth considering. But it ain't that big a deal. Back surgery (where they're poking around your spine) - now that's a big deal. This didn't seem as scary and there's no loss of "manliness". If someone says so, ask him if he'd try it - when he says "hell no!" say "Exactly. Pantywaist."

And warms the iodine up, too! That would be nice for a change.

why the permanent (or at least semi-permanent if you can get a successful reversal) over any of the many forms of birth-control?

I would want to really look into all of the other options before doing something I probably wouldn't be able to change, especially since there are so many temporary alternatives.

You also mentioned in your post that you just "think" that you're done.

What other form of birth control has no side-effects, requires no thinking,preparation or ongoing expense?

abstinance?

What fun is that?! And, I'd have to disagree abstinance requires a great deal of thinking in the form of self control and resisting temptation!

I'd say never being able to have children again is a VERY BIG side effect, much bigger and much more definite than any other possible side effect of other forms of birth control.

If someone would change their mind later, it's probably going to cost much more to fix it than any ongoing expense one may incur with other forms of birth control, if it's successful.

If someone wants to do things without thinking...

Nick;
I've heard too many horror stories about where they actually stick the needle to undergo the procedure but what's wrong with condoms?

Well David you've got a point there. This should only be considered if you're sure you're done having children.
