Any insight about scalpel free vasectomy?

I'm 26 years old and mother of triplets (3 kids). They are 2 years now. I was only 23 and I was not prepared to be a mother of 3 children. I thought of abortion back then. But my OB/GYN said that abortion will be complicated as I have triplets. I feel guilty for thinking about abortion.
It’s been nearly 3 years since I had sex with my husband. Last day he came to me and said that he wants to make love to me. My husband doesn’t use condoms as it won’t give him satisfaction. He asked me to take birth control pills. I hate taking pills as it affects my mood badly. Unfortunately, we couldn’t have sex because of our kids. lol
We are done with the kids. So I thought of undergoing Tubectomy. But my doctor said that there will be complications if I undergo Tubectomy as I had undergone appendectomy.
My husband said that he is ready to undergo scalpel free vasectomy from Toronto ( http://www.mensclinic.com/no-scalpel-vasectomy/ ). Is this procedure worth spending money? What is the difference between scalpel free and normal vasectomy?

    During your treatment, No Needle, No Scalpel vasectomy, you may experience the sensation of mild pressure, but most men do not feel any pain. At the time of your vasectomy, your surgeon will review with you your post vasectomy care instructions. You will also receive a written instruction sheet, along with the cellphone number of the surgeon. You may have sex five days after your vasectomy. You should be very gentle initially, and proceed according to your level of comfort. You may notice a small amount of blood in your first few ejaculations. So you have to make sure and adjust yourself according to this.

    Vasectomy is a surgical method used in men to cut or tie the vas deferens. Usually the operation involves cutting the skin of the scrotum with a scalpel. A newer technique uses a sharp instrument to puncture the skin instead. The intent is to have fewer problems with bleeding, bruising, and infection.

    Hi there. How are you? I am happy that you are a mother of triplets. It is my dream to become a mother of atleast twins. I think you can have sex after your husband's surgery. Sperms won't be able to reach the point then. Good luck. Take care of your diet and health.

    Hi dear, How are you. I hope that you find this at your best. I am really happy reading to your story. You did a very good thing. Abortion is not good anyway. You have kids now that's all that matters. Dear please don't go for making you self permanent. Your surgeon tells that it's not good than don't try it. You could always go for some permanent birth control methods like bands or anything like that. Use that. That could be more helpful for you. This is really great. I hope that you find it useful.

    Hello everyone.I'm getting around to actually getting snipped. All great. I've found a doctor who is willing to do it for someone my age (being taken seriously about one's own life choices is so nice), but the issue is the method. He's done 2000+ vasectomies (it's a major clinic in the area) and has done both scalpel and no-scalpel vasectomies, and says he thinks the scalpel ones are the superior options, and that he's not only a 1% complication rate from doing primarily scalpel vasectomies.My issue is this: I'm keen to go ahead with getting snipped asap, and he seemed like he knows what he's doing, but I am concerned by basically everything I've read online which suggests that the no-scalpel method has a lower incidence of post-vasectomy pain syndrome, which is my only major concern.I'm inclined to go ahead with it, but my worry is that if I do develop long-term pain afterward, I know I'll think to myself "why didn't I keep looking for someone who would do the no-scalpel?!?!". Does anyone know if there is any major research on both? I can find a lot of anecdotal evidence, which certainly isn't worthless when there's as much of it as there seems to be, but I am naturally concerned that I might be opting for the "worse" operation of the two, rather than just spending a little bit longer trying to find somebody who does no-scalpel.

    Hey, It is shameful for me to discuss over here.You can say that I am feeling hesitation as I'm 26 years old and I was also facing these issues as you are.But you know it's too much pain.When my husband was there in a clinic and discuss with doctors.Doctors told him the whole scenario and he was afraid of it. He asked me to take birth control pills.So at anyway, i have to take steps.Although I was also hated taking pills as it affects my mood badly.But at any cost, i have to take that pills.LOL.A better thing is for you to take pills and get assurity from your husband that if he can bear swelling and pain then you should go for a scalpel.Later on, it's your own choice of what steps you have to follow.Thank you.

    Hey, first of all, i think you should probably come to a compromise with your husband as far as sex goes because I'm sure you realise how detrimental that is for a relationship. There are a lot of avenues for you guys to try to improve your sex life. My husband and I ran into this same issue and we thankfully resolved with in a lot less time than you guys. Three years is a long time. My husband got a non-scalpel vasectomy and it has proven to be very beneficial for the both of us. More than a regular vasectomy would have been, according to my doctor. I wish you luck! Cheers!
