Top 5 Reactions to the Word Vasectomy
Any of these look familiar?
Talking with a guy about vasectomies can be difficult to say the least. After 25 years of patient consultations and successful procedures, we’ve heard just about every question in the book and understand just about every fear people have about having it done. Below are the top 5 reactions we know of when talking about vasectomies and what we know about calming the nerves down to be able to really see how safe, quick, easy and effective having a vasectomy at Advanced Urology Associates can be.
1. The Stare-Downer
Simply mention the idea of a vasectomy and this person will shoot you a stink eye so intense you might be afraid to ever mention it again. Don’t roll over.
Cure: Look off to the side and calmly explain to your gunslinger that thousands of people have had them successfully done at Advanced Urology. And with their no scalpel procedure, the quick 15 to 30-minute procedure itself is virtually pain free. When their eyebrows start to unwrinkled, tell them all these other reasons to seal the deal like all the fun of a stress-free love life after it’s done.
2. The Worrywart
Bring up the idea of a vasectomy and this person will keep asking questions like ‘What if it doesn’t work’, ‘What if my equipment doesn’t work after’, ‘What if, what if, what if…’ This person will ask those questions all day but don’t blame them. In most cases, they are just uninformed about how experienced, careful and focused our entire team is throughout the entire process.
Cure: Explain to them that the Urologists at AUA are all board-certified, (something you don’t find everywhere) and they have been doing safe & successful procedures for over 25 years. When you see their hands stop wringing a bit, tell them the rest of the reasons here at this link.
3. The Sprinter
Don’t let this person’s weight or age fool you, if you bring up the word vasectomy they will bolt like a Jamaican 100-yard dasher out of the blocks. You have but once chance here.
Cure: As they are running away, simply yell out ‘You get watch all the sports you want!’. When they pause, you have just enough time to tell them about our doctor’s orders to chill on the couch for a day or two and watch all the baseball, basketball, football or whatever they want. Many men can go back to work the next day, but why? Then tell them all the other great reasons found here.
4. The Scaredy Cat
The only thing to fear is fear is fear itself, right? Not to this guy. He does not like the idea of a knife anywhere below his equator.
Cure: This one’s simple – tell him they have a no scalpel procedure that is pain-free and just as successful as the conventional method, only with a shorter recovery time and fewer complications. And there’s no hospital stay as we do them right at our clinic. Then tell him the other great reasons not to fear here.
5. The Alternative Fact Checker
This person will not only do their own research, they will do it on their own time and in their own way. Unfortunately, they only scan the sites of places that don’t have the experience, facilities, procedures and track record like we do, looking for reasons and excuses not to have one done.
Cure: Send him to our site and have him read all our information. Or better yet, give us a call and schedule a free consultation. Our board-certified Urologists have heard every question in the book and take the time to answer each and every one of them so well, many patients are able to have the consultation and the actual procedure done in the same day! And you can fact check that one here.
If you or the guy in your life are unsure about getting a vasectomy, give us a call. We are happy to schedule an appointment and take the time to discretely answer all the questions and concerns you may have.
